Jeffrey Mace was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was a reporter inspired to become a superhero after seeing Captain America in action. As the Patriot, Mace becomes one of several superheroes who fight Nazi saboteurs and supervillains during World War II, sometimes alongside sidekick Mary Morgan, a.k.a. Miss Patriot. He helps found the superhero team the Liberty Legion, billed as "America's home front heroes" who fight saboteurs, Fifth Columnists and other wartime threats within the United States.
After the war, the Patriot continues to fight crime on a regular basis, eventually helping the All-Winners Squad prevent the assassination of a young Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1946. The skirmish costs the life of the second Captain America, William Naslund, formerly the Spirit of '76. Mace is recruited to be the third Captain America, retiring in 1949. He marries Betsy Ross, who as the superhero Golden Girl had briefly been the post-war sidekick of his Captain America, and in modern times succumbs to cancer at an old age.
He was occasionally accompanied by fellow reporter Mary Morgan, who briefly gained superhuman senses as Miss Patriot.
