Kevin Connor is a clone made from the DNA of Don Blake as part of an experiment to create super soldiers.
- He may not be perfect, but Don Blake is my father! And I'm not letting the likes of you take him from me! I don't care what you think he did! He's my father, DEAL WITH IT!
Super Soldiers Anonymous
When Nick Fury resurrected his failed 1990's Super S.H.I.E.L.D Initiative. Don Blake, a freelance scientist at S.H.I.E.L.D, was confronted about cloning. Don agreed, and gave the necessary samples for a clone. The samples were genetically altered as part of the process to make the perfect Super Soldier. Nine months later, "Anonymous" was born, and artificially aged using nanotechnology. He was kept hidden from the public as he trained and his powers were tested.
Panic Attacks"Anonymous" was presented with a red uniform with a star-like insignia on it. The suit was designed to limit his powers so that he wouldn't overload on energy. However, it didn't let it all out either, and Kevin began to have panic attacks as energy built up inside him. Each panic attack was worse than the last, and the S.H.I.E.L.D agents in charge of him began struggling to calm him down. Don was called in, as Fury hoped that the father-son relationship would calm him down, as they were unaware the attacks were due to an energy build-up. Don realised the problem and fixed the suit, allowing more energy to get out.
Family Back Home
Don decided he trusted Nick, but not S.H.I.E.L.D as a whole. He took legal custody of Kevin, and the Super Soldier moved into his father's penthouse apartment. Don took good care of his son, who had been aged to the equivalent of 18 by this point. Not wanting his son to grow old too quickly, Don disabled the nanotechnology in Kevin's body, keeping him at "18 years old". With Kevin's consent, he attended regular training sessions with S.H.I.E.L.D to learn to fully control his powers. Kevin was also present when Don completed his electricity-manipulating "Thor Tech", and helped charge the mechanical hammer with his energy powers. Since then, Kevin has helped Don charge his hammer when needed.
