History: Darren Oak was the leader of a project to establish a new community in the Canadian wilderness, a place called OurTown. Part of his funding came from his brother Nathan's company, but Darren began to be suspicious of some of the people Nathan was associating with, and meetings he was barred from entering. With his friend Daniel, he began spying on these meetings, and discovered his brother was involved with a conspiracy calling itself the New World Order, which planned to seize control of Canada. Wanting to go public, but fearing for the safety of those he cared about, Darren copied the costume of comic character Captain Canuck. His highly publicised speeches threatened the conspiracy, who wasted no time in sending assassins after him. However he also gained allies, such as Splatter, another opponent of the Order who followed Darren's example and disguised himself using the costume of another character from the same comics.
