The other men consisted of skilled pilot Kyle "Ace" Morgan, 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.
When the group's headquarters was blown up, the Challengers disbanded. Years later it was discovered that Davis had succumbed to a life of luxury and been committed to an asylum. He rejoined the Challengers for various adventures.
Later, he served as a mentor for the second group to call themselves the Challengers, though the fate of that group is unknown.
During the Infinite Crisis, he helped stop a prison break in Blackgate Prison. He and the rest of the Challengers were assigned to a space station to watch for signs of a group of heroes who were lost in space.
