Fictional character biography

Winston Manchester was a businessman working in New York City, who had been hospitalized from overwork. The death god Seth brought Kyle Brock, Winston Manchester, and Pamela Shaw to his own "dimension of death," healed them, and gave them superhuman powers. Seth employed these three humans, now known as Earth Force, as pawns for vengeance until Thor exposed Seth's evil nature to them.


Skyhawk and the Earth Force have been identified as a superhero registered with The Initiative, and stationed in Washington state.
