Wallace Jackson was a 16-year old who wore a costume designed by his uncle, who worked for NASA. He decided to travel to New York City to play-fight with his favorite superhero, Spider-Man, but proved to be more of a nuisance to the webslinger, and was injured after crashing through a store window. He later confronted Spider-Man again, during which Spider-Man destroyed Red Nine's costume, though Spider-Man later learned that Wallace helped a group of elderly patients against an abusive hospital administrator.
In Avengers: The Initiative, Red Nine appears in Camp Hammond, as an official recruit for the Initiative, along with Ant-Man, Crusader, Melee, Geldoff, Dragon Lord, Geiger, and Diamondback. He is one of the trainees that unsuccessfully attempts to defeat K.I.A.
During the 2008 "Secret Invasion" storyline, Red Nine takes part at the clashes between the Earth's heroes and the Skrulls. After being surrounded by Super-Skrull troops in his first battle and saved by Nick Fury's Secret Warriors, he and his fellow Initiative trainees take part at the final combat against the invading aliens.
After the invasion, Red Nine was assigned to Georgia's Initiative team.
Powers and abilities
Red Nine has no superpowers but wears a costume which allows him to fly, and gives him superhuman strength. The costume also gives him a force field protecting him from harm, and enables him to shoot energy bolts.
