When the Black Hand kidnapped Tom Townsend and his wealthy inventor father John Townsend, he didn't realize he was also creating his own nemesis — Captain Flag.
While torturing them for information, Tom's father died. When the Black Hand began to strangle Tom, a giant eagle (later named Yank) swooped down to save him and carried him to a mountain top. At the top of the mountain, Tom healed, and with a flag in hand, brought to him by Yank, he vowed to do great acts of courage in the name of Glory.
