ORIGIN

Wayne Sidmondson was the owner of the first “McBonnie Burger” Franchise in his hometown of St. George, Mississippi. He was also a collector who gathered weapons and torture instruments. One day he acquired an executioner’s hood dating back to the Middle Ages. It turned out that the hood was cursed, so that “Whosoever wears the Hood, be they compelled: Do only good!” Putting on the hood, Sidmondson became a crime fighter, protecting his hometown of St. George.
