After his parents attended a meeting with his principal because of a fight he had with another student, Kevin was summoned by Steve Rogers and was brought to Rogers’ mobile command center. Rogers wanted to give Kevin something that belonged to Kevin's dad, the Thunderstrike (mace), and Kevin eagerly accepted. Kevin was disappointed he did not transform into the hero his father was, but Rogers told him if he ever did trigger the change he could enroll at Avengers Academy to train with other young heroes.On his way home Kevin witnessed the Rhino attack a police transport, liberating captured Russian spies. In his wake Rhino overturned a car carrying a mother and baby, ruptured its gas tank, and toppled high-tension lines ensuring a stray spark would start a fire. As the mother was pulled to safety Kevin tried desperately to save the child, using his mace to pry the door open. Just as the car exploded his mace released its enchanted energies and Kevin became Thunderstrike and both he and the baby were safe. Rhino thought Thunderstrike was there to stop him so he immediately attacked. Although Kevin tried to fight back it wasn't long before Rhino got the best of him and escaped. As much as Kevin was surprised to have become Thunderstrike in the first place, his reflection shocked him that much more when he saw he was in his father's body.
