When Nathaniel Richards (Iron Lad) traveled from the future to enlist the Avengers to stop his future self Kang, he found that the team had disbanded. Assembling an alternative team of young heroes that could challenge the time traveling despot, one of his potential recruits Josiah Bradley (Justice II) could not be found and his family knew nothing of his whereabouts.

Determined to help the young time traveler and live-up to the legacy of his grand-father (Captain America 0), Eli Bradley found a means though the illegal drug M.G.H. (mutant growth hormone) to give him the power of a super-soldier. Claiming to have obtained his physical powers via a blood transfusion from his grand-father, a claim which would eventually come true, Bradley donned a patriotic uniform becoming the Patriot.
