November 22, 1999 GI Bob joins the army reserves at age 17 with parent's consent.

February 21, 2000 1 month after his 18th birthday and 1 day after losing his virginity, GI Bob's muntant powers begin to manifest. He is able to levitate himself and others.

March 12, 2000 Though his powers came relatively late, he has already reached full potential. He can now open black holes and concentrate vast amounts of energy into singularities.

November 1, 2000 Realizing his possibilities, GI Bob informs his recruiter that he will not be reporting to basic training. He makes his muntant powers known to the military and to the public.

December 7, 2000 President Bush announces, "The powers of the earth are controlled by a man and he is a GI." Bob adopts the nickname GI Bob.

January 25, 2001 The pentagon writes policy on super-powered GIs giving them "special treatment".

March 13, 2001 GI Bob arrives at basic training wearing his sister's clothes. Instructors say they don't care.

July 30, 2001 GI Bob arrives home from basic training. Upon arriving at his reserve center, they hand him orders stating that he has been involuntarily transfered to a unit in Paragon City, something very unusual for a reservist. Orders are signed personally by President Bush.

August 10, 2001 GI Bob moves to Kings Row in Paragon City, RI., believing he no longer has any reason to live in Indianapolis.

November 1, 2001 GI Bob rescues a cat from a trash compactor at the local Wally-Supermart.

November 7, 2001 PETA honors GI Bob on live television for saving the cat. Cable news stations cover the event as they are already in Paragon City covering various stories on why psychic heroes didn't stop the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

November 8, 2001 PETA offers GI Bob a generous contract to be their official hero. He accepts although he has no plans to do actual "hero" work.

2002 GI Bob appears on several magazine covers. Supergroups in Paragon City publicly discredit him as a party animal who frequents raves and drinks under age.

January 21, 2003 GI Bob attends his 21st birthday party at a bar called "The Icebox." He meets the owner in a private room, a metamorph known as Horrorshow (later known as Crazy Ate). Horrorshow offers him some dirty work in exchange for a partnership with his nightclubs. GI Bob agrees.

January 30, 2003 GI Bob has his first run in with Stupidity Man, a goofy ninja that seems to harass Horrorshow. Horrorshow accuses him of stalking but the PPD ignore his calls for help. GI Bob offers to take care of Stupidity Man but Horrorshow is not interested.

March 20, 2003 GI Bob is finally given assignment by Horrorshow. Horrorshow hands him pictures of D. Glock, owner of the security firm guarding most of his nightclubs, selling weapons to an Iraqi Republican Guard officer. "Take care of this for me," he says.

March 31, 2003 GI Bob tracks D. Glock, a muntant changeling who prefers the look of a thug-clown, to a back alley in King's Row. He witnesses a battle between Stupidity Man and the changeling. D. Glock gains the upper hand and nearly kills the ninja. GI Bob quickly suppresses D. Glock by hovering him inches of the ground and holding him in place. Stupidity Man offers to take him in and promises GI Bob credit for the capture.

April 1, 2003 Stupidity Man holds a press conference. He announces that D. Glock interrupted him and GI Bob as they were making out in the back alley and that GI Bob acted in self defense. Cameras miss GI Bob's initial facepalm. As the cameras turn away from Stupidity Man and begin flashing in GI Bob's face, he sees Stupidity Man lip the words "April fools."

April 2, 2003 Gay rights sponsors flock to GI Bob like sharks to a floating tuna butchery. He signs contracts with 3 as their official hero.

June 15, 2003 GI Bob joins a cover band local to Paragon City called Butterfly Punches as their lead singer.

December 23 2003 GI Bob and the Butterfly Punches perform at a Christmas concert sponsored by PETA under Atlas. After performing the song March of the Pigs by Nine Inch Nails, GI Bob bites the head off a chicken.

April-May 2006 The Pensylvania National Guard now reports 300 casualties including 90 in the month of May alone.

June 6, 2006 GI Bob vows that another American life will not be taken in Ramadi. Later that day, he is reportedly in the streets of Ramadi on a path of destruction. There is no official flight manifest into Iraq that lists his name.

July 1, 2006 The city formerly known as the most dangerous city in the world is now the quietest city in the world.

July 13, 2006 GI Bob rescues 4 soldiers from a burning humvee. The driver is his HS girlfriend Alecia Granit and she has suffered fatal wounds. As he tries to comfort her, he discovers his secondary mutation, healing powers.

July 14, 2006 After realizing that his wife really did have cancer and he actually healed her, he decides that he wants to return home to be with her. The army asks him to reconsider but makes flight arrangements for him to go home.

July 19, 2006 Alecia is killed by friendly fire while out on patrol in Ramadi. Her accident is covered up by the military. GI Bob is told she was killed by a suicide bomber.

January, 17 2007 GI Bob's replacement arrives in Iraq, an entire unit of super powered soldiers.

March 20, 2007 GI Bob returns home from Iraq. He is honored in a welcome home parade in Paragon City.

March 22, 2007 Shelby Shockstreet leaves GI Bob and tells him that she wants a divorce.

July 5, 2007 Shelby Shockstreet informs GI Bob that she left him because she got pregnant while he was overseas. The father is Stupidity Man.

July 15, 2007 The army leaks information about Alecia Granite's death. GI Bob learns he was lied to and suspects a conspiracy to keep him in Ramadi.

August 9, 2007 GI Bob informs the army that he will be wearing a turbin in the place of his beret as part of his uniform.

August 25, 2007 GI Bob and Horrorshow open a bar called The Crayfish. On opening day a mutual friend of theirs by the name of Stephen Hess brings a beerpong table to the bar. The game is a hit. GI Bob shamelessly uses his powers to cheat.

May 16, 2008 Stupidity Man reaches the high point of his lethal hero stage and replaces his ninja look with that of a classic horror film star and begins calling himself Butterknife. He goes on a rampage with a chainsaw inside the Crayfish and nearly kills Horrorshow. One of his own allies stops him from killing Horrorshow. The police arrive and take Horrorshow to jail for selling weapons to the Iraqis. GI Bob is arrested but is cleared of charges the next day.

June 13, 2008 Depressed over losing his business partner and hurt over seeing Stupidity Man for the first time after learning of him and his ex wife, GI Bob leaves The Crayfish in a drunken rage. He drives over a street sign and is pulled over and arrested. The judge frees him and allows a plea bargain. GI Bob must reach security level 50 by doing "hero work" for the community. Once security level 50 is reached, all his criminal charges will go away.

June 18, 2008 GI Bob is so angry after visiting his probation officer that he can't even see straight. As he is walking home a man silently hands him a business card. The card reads "Villains of Paragon City" and there is a telephone number.

June 19, 2008 GI Bob calls the number on the card and discusses his legal problems with whoever answers the phone.

June 20, 2008 GI Bob reads in the paper that his probation officer was found hanging from the Independence Port bridge. PPD rules it a suicide. GI Bob calls the VoPC number on his cell. He mentions the officer and asks if he owes anything. The person on the phone says, "We're not mercenaries, we take care of our ranks."

June 21, 2008 GI Bob's new probation officer scolds him for his lack of urgency with reaching security level 50, however GI Bob is afraid to do hero work because of his high profile. He starts wearing a surgeons mask while performing hero work.

July & August, 2008 GI Bob enjoys a trouble free probation. The names of the probation officers that annoy him are given to the VoPC and are later found dead. His hero work becomes more and more casual.

September 1, 2008 GI Bob calls the VoPC number to report that his current probation officer has been a no show at their meetings for nearly a week but is surprised to find that the number has been disconnected.

September 6, 2008 GI Bob is called to assist with a prison riot at the Zig. He ignores the call. Later that day a missile is fired from the Zig. The missile hits the Atlas Park PPD building killing a prisoner in their holding cell by the name of Dr. Charles Hill-Lewis.

September 7, 2008 GI Bob reads in the newspaper that 8 metamorphs, including Horrorshow, are missing from the Zig and a Jeckyl-Hyde-ish monster has escaped. Several longbow wardens working at the prison are terminated from their positions for incompetence.
