Jim was a police officer in Seattle when two members of the Serpent Squad landed there after escaping from a battle with Nomad (Steve Rogers, usually known as Captain America).

Jim and other members of the Seattle police department held the super-villains -- Viper and Cobra -- at bay inside a a building where they had holed up.

Jim wears a red jacket like the other police on the scene, but he can be distinguished from the others because he is wearing a helmet with a clear hard plastic visor that covers half of his face. This is slightly different from other the head gear other police officers on the scene are wearing: goggles and a helmet with a small brim.

On page 1 in Captain America (vol. 1) #182, Nomad (Steve Rogers) jumps into the scene. Jim looks up and exclaims: "Who the heck is that?"

Nomad (who nobody recognizes, because it is a brand-new costumed identity Rogers is trying out) tries to interject himself into the crisis situation, but the cops don't know him, don't trust him and don't want him involved. They think he'll just get himself killed if he tries to confront Viper and Cobra.

As Nomad leaps toward the building where Viper and Cobra are holed up, Jim's fellow police officer shouts (panel 4, page 2): "Grab 'im, Jim! This guy's outta his mind!"

Jim grabs Nomad's leg and replies: "I guess! Does he think he's Captain America or somethin'?"

Nomad tries to escape the grip of Jim and his partner, but he fails to do so. Jim's partner knocks Nomad out with the butt of his rifle. Jim says: "What gets into these costumed crazies, anyway?"

In panel 1 on page 4, Jim finishes handcuffing Nomad to a car. Jim tells his partner: "Okay, Blondie's cuffed to the car! You ready?"

Jim's partner says: "Yeah. The guy's are all set! We have to rush 'em. It's the only way to break 'em loose, and-- --it's our job!"

Jim's fellow officer then blows his whistle. He, Jim, and other officers rush toward the building, guns firing. Unfortunately, the ruthless Viper and her partner-in-crime Cobra have machine guns with them. They shoot down the cops. It is never revealed whether or not Jim survived being shot down by the villains. Nomad regains consciousness, seeing the cops gunned down. He breaks loose from the handcuffs and storms the building. Nomad (Steve Rogers) manages to capture Cobra, but tear grenades fired by backup police forces start a fire and the building burns down. Viper apparently perishes in the fire. (She is later found to have survived.)
