COMIC‐BOOK CREDENTIALS: Jack Bauer has appeared in comics based on the TV series 24, published by IDW.
COMIC‐BOOK WEAKNESSES: Is pretty much a newcomer when it comes to comics and without a TV series as a tie‐in, it can be pretty hard going out there to become a comic‐book icon.
He’s Jack EFFING Bauer; that’s all that needs to be said. However if you really don’t know (shame on you)… he’s an on/off agent of CTU, is capable of disabling, maiming and killing any potential threat to the safety of the world; is a serious bad ass, an expert in most forms of combat, can use any weapon, can turn anything into a weapon, never needs to pee in the space of 24 hours…
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: Bauer would be the team’s insurance; making sure that they achieve every mission, no matter what the cost. Bauer has proved time and time again that he can put everything on the line in order to win and so is the ultimate final member of the ultimate team.
POTENTIAL RISK: Jack Bauer sees things only one way – Jack Bauer’s way! If Hannibal gives an order and Jack doesn’t think it is for the good of the mission, then he will disregard it and go it alone. The mission would never be jeopardized as a result, but the safety of the team might be. Expect casualties.
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: Bauer would be the last man standing.
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION… LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITH WOLVERINE: There is no replacement for Jack Bauer. And he wouldn’t die before a mission. IT JUST WOULDN'T HAPPEN!
