Malcolm is the representation of rage in the team. He was once a Marine who let his anger get the best of him in combat. When it led to the death of one of his fellow soldiers, Malcolm was discharged. He was recruited into the Birds of Prey, but still had a hard time controlling his wrath. When the team was disbanded by the Raven, Malcolm changed his costume and alias to Redwing.

Eventually, Malcolm’s secret identity was discovered by the evil Dr. Vision who, after employing several rather unsavory super-henchmen, went hunting for Malcolm’s family. Malcolm raced from relative to relative, warning them of the peril. Only his cousin Darius decided to join him and help him fight. During the skirmish, Malcolm was punched in the back by the massive villain Leviathan so hard that he was paralyzed from the waist down.

For a while, Darius assumed the role of Redwing, but eventually moved on to find his own persona, Major Owl. Malcolm, now much more reserved and slow-to-anger and wheelchair bound, currently owns a children’s martial arts center.
