The Thomas McKael wiki last edited by Mucklefluga on 05/09/13 10:51AM View full history


Thomas was the son of two members of the IRA. During an attack on their house when he was a child, his father handed him a shotgun and told him to hide in the closet until the fight is over. Hearing footsteps outside the door, he fired, accidentally killing his parents. His uncle then takes him in, and trains him to fight for the IRA as well. Although he had no problems killing adults, he refused to hurt children. When an attack planned by the IRA lead to a school bus being in the line of fire, Thomas attempted to remove it from the scene. There was only one child fatality on the bus, and Thomas was arrested for his ties to the IRA.


Thomas was created by Punk Rock Jesus writer/artist Sean Murphy.
