Origins:
 
Commander Giles McHeath worked 50 years for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In his time he saw Front de Libération du Québec (FLQ) kidnappings, troops aiding the police, civil liberties suspended, sometimes he even got beaten up. After the October Crisis he saw countless innocents being trampled in the war against the FLQ. The same years Cell Combattre slaughtered several policemen at Christmas. Many FLQ terrorists were caught, but never Cell Combattre.
McHeath retired after 50 years and started his own antiterrorist organization. With a battle-suit based on a prototype designed by James McDonald Hudson (Guardian) for a company called Am-Can, he became the vigilante known as Scourge with the goal to kill all Cell Combattre members.
