Almost nothing is known of Bravo's background, save the fact that he was one of the earliest allied super-soldier operatives in active service during WWII. Indeed, Bravo acquired a notable reputation for his early efforts within the employ of the British Secret Services and even struck up a relationship with long time fellow-operative Peggy Carter. However, this all changed with the emergence of Captain America (Steve Rogers), a younger and stronger super soldier who gradually attained precedence within the theatre of allied operations. Rivalry eventually became enmity when an emotional attachment developed between Carter and Rogers, though Bravo continued to actively cooperate with the two on future missions. Nonetheless, the team dissolved following the failure of a covert mission in 1944, one which would result in Bravo being trapped within the land of nowhere for more than fifty years. Though the team had planned to use Jimmy Jupiter in order to infiltrate Hydra HQ, Jankowicz was rendered comatose by a hydra agent, consequently imprisoning Bravo's team within a nightmarish land of pure imagination. Over the course of decades Bravo eventually mastered his new found home and moulded it into a paradise for himself and his new wife Grace (formerly a Hydra agent), a utopia far removed from the corruption of the U.S.A.
Nevertheless, Richard's happiness was once again destroyed by powers outside of his control when Jankowicz awoke from his coma, subsequently releasing the residents of nowhere into the 21st century world.
