Global Defense League
Farnsworth Hastings was a brilliant genetic researcher until he caught his lab assistant, Vince Virgil doing unregulated experimentation on himself. In his efforts to stop his assistant, Dr. Hastings was transformed into the hideous Scorn.
Dr. Farnsworth Hastings had performed cutting edge genetics research at Empire University for the last two decades. On the cusp of a major step in cellular restructuring he was waiting for the university board’s approval before beginning human trials. He entered his laboratory late one evening after forgetting his cell phone to discover his ambitious lab assistant and brilliant student Dr. Vince Virgil conducting the trials on himself. In an effort to stop his young protege the Dr. Hastings was transformed into the hulking, disfigured, purplish, four armed beast who would now be known as Scorn. The newly created monster fled the scene, confused and angry. Dr. Virgil led the Board of Regents at Empire University to believe that Dr. Hastings had caused the destruction of the lab by experimenting on himself and transforming into the creature Scorn. The board believed Dr. Virgil’s story and he went on to become a founding member of the Global Defense League by the name of Vigilance. After plotting his revenge for a bit, Scorn returned to Empire University and severely beat Vigilance before the rest of the Global Defense League stopped the brute. Let it be known however that the GDL let Vigilance take a bit of extra beating at the hands of Scorn after their origins had been revealed to them. Scorn was eventually banished to an unknown dimension and his whereabouts and well being are unknown.
