Fletcher Lynnx was born in Rhode Island. He joined the army at a young age to fight in World War II.
During a battle against Hydra, the lives of Lynnx and his unit were saved by Captain America and the Howling Commandos. From that moment on, Lynnx vowed to be like the Captain in anyway he could. During another battle with Hydra towards the end of the war, the young soldier was captured and tortured. Hydra scientist Dr. Arnim Zola subjected him to experiments to make him "Captain America's equal". His size was artificially enhanced and his attributes toned. He was given intense training to amplify his combat prowess. He was also given the Infinity Formula, slowing down his aging. He has survived to the present as a mercenary for hire who commonly works for Hydra.
Later, Lynnx has subjected to further experimentation by Hydra. Hydra had the Power Gem in its possession and Sprain's strength was significantly increased.
