|In 1938, young Eddie Jones saved an old man from a mugging. The old man it turned out was an Indian shaman. As a reward for his help the shaman awakened Jones’s “spirit animal” , the mountain lion. Now gifted with cat like abilities, Eddie assumed the identity of Catamount. Catamount fought crime in Alpha City’s “Lean town” for several years. He disappeared from the public eye shortly after the start of WWII. With rumors of an almost cat like soldier fighting the axis overseas, he presumably died serving his country.
