Joe Higgins father, Tomas Higgins was a member of the Burning Hand, a clandestine organization organized to protect the United States. After Thomas was killed by Axis-allied spies, Joe completed his fathers research to recreate the powers of the legendary Shield.
Shield was an original member of the Mighty Crusaders and later the groups government liaison through the M.L.J. program. Permanently injured by Eraser, and with the return of the historic Shield (Victoria Adams), Joe resigned as leader of the Crusaders and assumed responsibilities as head of M.L.J.
Joe Higgins is not actually the first Shield. Victoria Adams, although the fourth Shield to appear in publication, is actually the first Shield in continuity.
