In 1982 is when Super-Tough and his teenage sidekick Young-Tough engaged their deadliest foe, Damien Darklord in final combat. at the Ft. Heaton military base, the two heroes had offered their services to help protect an experimental new weapon - the Nega-Bomb. Super-Tough led his partner into battle to fend off a group of heavily armed men who were trying to steal the device and use its potential for mass destruction for their own ends. Damien Darklord engineered events enough to lead to the detonation of the original Nega-Bomb. Several people were killed, including Super-Tough and Damien Darklord. The blast also horribly scarred Young-Tough, leaving the abandoned teenager to grow up bitter and twisted, ultimately becoming the merciless vigilante Mace.

Over the next decade and a half, Darklord proceeded to conquer this alternate Earth, removing any potential threats to his rule. Super-Tough was the only one left to challenge his rule. who adopted the role of freedom fighter. Unfortunately, Super-Tough's efforts are not nearly enough to topple the superior powered villain.
