Frank Oliver was a native of Australia who was extremely fascinated with kangaroos. He would spend his vacations studying them and yearned for the ability to run and leap like they did. Eventually he decided to train alongside them. He would eat what they ate and go where they went. He achieved the ability to jump and box like his marsupial role-models. He decided to try and cash in on his new abilities by entering into boxing matches. However he was too fierce and on one occasion almost killed a man. He decided to leave the country before the police caught up to him and reached America. However the authorities apprehended him for not having a passport and tried to deport him. But he managed to escape and adopted the identity of the Kangaroo.
