History: Frank Bohannan operated as the costumed hero known as the Crimson Commando during World War II. As far as is known, neither he nor his comrades, Super Sabre and Stonewall, were members of that period's leading teams of costumed heroes, the Invaders and the Liberty Legion.

Bohannan eventually retired as a costumed adventurer, but he and his colleagues, Super Sabre and Stonewall, grew increasingly disturbed over crimes perpetrated by people they believed to be beyond the reach of the law. The three retired heroes determined to do their part to deal with this problem. In recent years, the three costumed adventurers captured various alleged criminals, set them loose in New York State's Adirondack State Park, and then hunted them down to their deaths. By this means the, three costumed adventurers believed they rid society of some of its less desirable members, and in a fashion that would strike terror into any other criminal who heard about it.

The three vigilantes were finally thwarted when they captured cocaine dealer Priscilla Morrison and, by mistake, Storm, a member of the X-Men. Realizing Storm was not herself a criminal, the three vigilantes faced a dilemma; if they let her go free, she would report them to the legal authorities. Moreover, Storm, although she was at this time physically unable to use her superhuman powers, was determined to protect Morrison from being killed. So the three costumed adventurers decided to hunt both Storm and Morrison down in the park.

Morrison had no gratitude towards Storm, and the Crimson Commando finally killed Morrison when she tired to murder Storm. Storm then defeated the Crimson Commando in combat and demanded that he and Stonewall surrender to the state legal authorities and confess their crimes (At this point, Super Sabre was erroneously believed to have been killed. The Crimson Commando and Stonewall complied and were sent to prison.)

However, months later, Dr. Valerie Cooper arranged for the release of the Crimson Commando and Stonewall in exchange for their agreement to serve in Freedom Force, a team of former superhuman criminals now operating on behalf of the federal government. Super Sabre turned up alive and also joined Freedom Force. The Crimson Commando proved to be a valuable member of Freedom Force. His current where abouts is unknown.

Strength Level: The Crimson Commando possesses a level of strength that is just short of being superhuman for a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.

Known Superhuman Powers: The Crimson Commando is a mutant whose mutation has permitted him in his prime to achieve virtually the peak of physical perfection (beneath superhuman levels). He retains much of his physical prowess even today.

The Crimson Commando has usually sharp vision, enabling him to see his colleague Super Sabre clearly even when the latter is running at high speeds.
