History: Joe American is the son of Vietnam War Hero Joseph D. “Buzz” American Jr and Folk Singer Tammy Windsong. After returning from his 3rd tour in Vietnam, Joseph Jr showed many behavioral problems brought on by post-traumatic stress. Tammy found that marijuana controlled his behavior and the pleased couple began a love affair with what they deemed the “Magic Plant”. They lived happily, eventually having a son who they named Joseph D. American III. Young Joe, an aspiring Chef developed dozens of recipes to add variety to his father’s methods of consumption.
At the age of 18 Joe III enlisted in the Army to defend his country during the Gulf War. He was assigned as a cook and placed in a Hot Zone near the front. His time in the Gulf allowed Joe the freedom to experiment with new strains of his beloved plant and shortly before leaving “The Gulf” he had developed a recipe for the most potent Pot Brownie ever combining Western Sativa and Mid-Eastern Indica. His Brownies relived the stress of the soldiers and helped boost moral. Though never officially acknowledged by the Army, many soldiers have credited this Brownie as a key to turning the war in our favor.
Joe returned home and married his High School sweet heart Mary Jane True. The two lived happily until Joe’s father disappeared after a reunion with his old war buddy. The senior had fallen into a plot to turn traumatized war veterans into killing machines. The plot was foiled by the Famed Superhero Captain Chronic, but not before Joe senior was turned into the super villain “BuzzKill”.
Joe III has since dedicated himself to fighting his father’s rampage under the identity of Major Munchies.
