Character Details

1. Jesse Black Crow was born on a Navajo Reservation and as a child. Raised in the customs of his people, Jesse always felt like an outsider. Never really connected to his tribe and always wanted to leave.

2. As a teenager, Jesse ran away from home, giving up his heritage and finding odds and end jobs in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

3. With no formal education and no real future, Jesse continued to make ends meet working various jobs until he could earn enough money to make it to New York City.

4. When he turned 25, he made his way to New York City. He had saved enough money to live in a studio flat. Barely able to live, he found unsteady work doing construction.

5. He had always been good with his hands and so he thought this may actually be a career to get into. It is a risky profession working those incredible heights, but for Jesse. He was unafraid.

6. Unfortunately for Jesse perhaps, he should have been afraid. One awful day when the weather was particularly windy, the scaffolding on which he was working gave way and Jesse plummeted 20 stories to the ground below.

7. Jesse was in a coma for weeks. Near death, Jesse received a special visitor in the form of the Earth Spirit.

11. The Earth Spirit would repeatedly visit Jesse in his dreams. It would constantly remind him that the Earth Spirit was crying out for vengeance.

12. The focus of the visions was on Captain America. The Earth Spirit demanded his death and it was up to the Black Crow to make this happen.

13. Finally on Christmas Eve, Jesse allows the transformation to Black Crow happen.

14. Black Crow encounters Captain America and Nomad on the Brooklyn Bridge. He easily defeats the two.

15. Ready to kill Captain America to appease the Earth Spirit. Captain America kneels before Black Crow in defeat and to respect the Earth Spirit.

18. Dave Cox, friend of Captain America had been poisoned and was set to die as Black Crow watched from the window, Dave survived.

22. Black Crow then found himself in battle against The Cat, a malevolent Native American spirit in Yosemite National Park. He was able to train Hawkeye and work with the archer to defeat the Cat.

23. Owayodata had been kidnapped by his fellow Native American gods, Calumet, Nanabozho and Hotamitanio. It took the combined might of Black Crow, Red Wolf, and Dr. Strange to defeat them and rescue Owayodata.
