Jaeger Tallspirit was born in the 30th Century, from a family in self-imposed exile. His mother was Maire, a rebel and a hijacker, who terrorized the new government of Earth with her terrorist attacks; his father was Redwind, a Native American born on the beautiful colony planet of Starhaven, who joined the rebellion and met his wife during the fights against the United Planets. Both of them saw their lives as revolutionaries vanish the moment they had their child together, as with him along everything became too dangerous, and they were often seen before they could make a move. In order to avoid arrest, the three Tallspirits moved to Minerstown, an arid and industrialist planetoid, which felt like a prison to both of them: to Maire, because she wished to continue her fight, and to Redwind, because he missed the open skies and beautiful forests of his homeworld. Jaeger felt his parents’ resentment, but for him it was a beautiful life nonetheless… until the day came that the Science Police, an Earth-based law enforcement task force, finally found Maire, and arrested her. For Jaeger, his mother’s arrest was the end of the world, and he grew up with a deep resentment for the Science Police. He spent more time with his father, who taught him all the tracking and hunting skills of his people, and he used them to become Bounty, the ultimate bounty hunter: his sole purpose was to humiliate the Science Police, and to prove that he could best them at their own job acting in plain legality. As soon as his training was complete, he left his homeworld, and made a name for himself as one of the best hunters around: Bounty always caught his prey, dead or alive, and he always beat the Science Police on his targets. Eventually Bounty became good enough to be the first name the United Planets always called in need, even before the regular law enforcement squads.
He met the Legion when the United Planets hired him to bring in the creature called the Composite Legionnaire. This was a monstrosity formed from the accidental merging of Saturn Girl, Lighting Lad, Colossal Boy, and Shrinking Violet.
