Fictional character biography[edit]

Tommy Jagger was introduced in the first issue of the second incarnation of Checkmate. He is the Knight of the White King, Alan Scott. Tommy is the son of Hadley "Rip" Jagger, the first Judomaster, who was killed in the battle of Metropolis during the Infinite Crisis when the supervillain Bane broke his back.[1]

Tommy ultimately encounters his father's killer when he and Fire are sent on a mission to Bane's home country of Santa Prisca. He fights Bane in order to allow Fire to escape and ultimately defeats him. However, he chooses not to kill Bane.[2]


In Checkmate #9 Tommy states that he is gay when a stripper offers him a lap dance. This is later restated in Checkmate #14.
