In the second issue of New Fun, Jack saw somebody tampering with the ski jump he was on. As he went down the jump, it cracked and collapsed. Only Jack's great agility and athletic skill saved him. Jack managed to catch up with the man who damaged the jump, only to find that it was the very same man who had tried to bribe him!
