Colonel Kyle 'Ace' Morgan was a skilled pilot in the United States Air Force. He flew jets in various conflicts but has now left the service. Ace was En route to appear on the radio program but was involved in a plane crash but miraculously survives along with three other men. The other men consisted of Olympic westling champion Lester "Rocky" Davis, master skin diver Walter "Prof" Haley, circus daredevil Matthew "Red" Ryan. The four survivors decided that they were now all living 'on borrowed time', and banded together to start their adventuring career as the Challengers of the Unknown.

Ace was the defacto team leader on several missions. Though having fought the good fight for several years now, Ace and the other Challengers of the Unknown are still active. For a brief time, Ace developed an interest in spiritualism and magic, but recently returned to his old classic-style heroic ways again.

When last seen, the team returned with Superboy from an adventure in Hypertime. The team had been waging guerrilla war against Black Zero (a Superboy variant).[1] With Black Zero defeated, the team returns to Earth, but loses Red along the way. Reunited with Rocky in Metropolis and hosted by Rip Hunter, the original Challengers vow to explore Hypertime, "the greatest unknown," in an attempt to find Red.

However, their associate June Robbins had been replaced with an alternate version. The other Challengers of the Unknown returned into Hypertime to find their missing teammates.[2]



  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
