On his eighteenth birthday [[StevenUlyssesPerHero Jack Russell]] finds he has inherited the curse of the werewolf, and has to battle an [[MonsterMash array of villains]], ranging from vampires to gorgons to circus folk, most of which need him in some way or another for the execution of their EvilPlan. During TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, he turned into a bit of an anti-hero, WalkingTheEarth and fighting rogue supernatural creatures who give the rest of them a bad name. As of the 2010s Jack mainly serves as a member of the Legion of Monsters, protecting other monsters from being killed and providing a safe haven for them.
