Charles Lane II is the grandson of Chuck Lane, who fought crime and the Nazis in World War II as The Jester.
The elder Lane was secretly an agent of the Arcadian order, a secret society who claimed to have manipulated America's history since its beginning, as was his son, Charles Lane's father. But when Lane's father was murdered by the Arcadians after rebelling against them, the younger Lane was left with a desire for revenge which led him eventually to adopt the identity of the new Jester and conspire with his grandfather to destroy the society.
Lane subsequently tried to steal for himself the power that had made Uncle Sam the symbol of America, single handedly defeating Sam's Freedom Fighters and murdering Firebrand before being beaten by Uncle Sam and taken into custody. He was later reported to have been given the death penalty.
