Commander Tim Morrow is an intelligence officer who was chosen for a military project to create a super armor that was resilient from all forms of destructive weapons.
Tim Morrow was born an only child. His father would regale him with stories of his war time exploits during the Korean War. Tim’s father sold his farm so that he could go to Yale and become a lawyer. After college, Tim enlisted in the Navy as a lawyer for the Judge Advocate General (JAG) where he would rise through the ranks at an unprecedented pace, his eidetic memory helping along the way.
Commander Morrow soon found himself in Iraq as an Intelligence Officer, helping to solve the riddle of where a certain dictator was hiding. Once his mission was complete, he was sent back to Norfolk. Tim was called to Washington D.C. soon after to talk to the President of the United States. It was at this time that Tim was told about Project: Future. This was a project to help the common soldier on the battlefield. New equipment was constantly being tested and every test subject had been injured due to misalignments in helmet-thought matrices. It was thought that Tim had superior skills in decision making and critical thinking in stressful environments.
Tim was flown out to Area 51 and met with an old friend from Officer Candidate School, First Lieutenant Jack Destin , and saw how large the Project actually was. An entire geo-front had been created so that there was never a need for anyone to actually leave the Project once admitted. Tim was taken to lower most testing level and saw what he was going to be doing for the first time. In a room the size of a warehouse was a lone manikin in what looked like a Lycra unitard. A technician raised a FIM-92 Stinger missile and fired it at the suit. Amazingly, the suit was untouched. Tim was told that the unitard was to be worn underneath armor that was currently being developed. This was what Tim was brought here to do.
Tim was subjected to many tests over the next year. He was schooled beyond the advanced hand to hand combat all Marines go through. He was given a shield that was used for testing advanced ceramics, Kevlar, and titanium alloys. He was told that the shield configuration was a simple design and was easy to manufacture for testing. Once complete, the materials would be molded into armor plates for soldiers and Marines. It was during this time that tragedy struck.
Unbeknownst to the Military, the geo-front had been under surveillance for several years by an underworld boss known only as Despot . He had stolen smaller ideas from the Military and sold them on the black market. Knowing about the ceramic unitard, Despot knew he would be set for life if he could steal it. Despot’s minions launched a full scale attack on Area 51, somehow figuring out the codes needed to break into the geo-front.
Tim ran to put on his suit, but found Jack putting on the suit instead. Jack was actually Despot. Jack and Tim fought all the way into the testing facility where Tim picked up a plasma torch and shot it at Jack. Jack, not realizing that the suit needed an extra sealed helmet for fire, was set ablaze. He ran from the room and was escorted out by his minions, whom had managed to reach the testing facility. Jack got away, but the suit was irrevocably bonded to him now.
Tim was rewarded for his bravery and quick thinking. He was given a new suit to test, this one able to withstand plasma without a helmet. He was also given a new shield, this one actually combining all the alloys he had been testing, as well as a Kevlar based paint and a ceramic core. Wanting to try to help shut down Jack’s operations in America, it was decided that Tim would help federal agents hunt down Jack, now known as Lord Despot. He would work under the codename of Commander Tomorrow.
