Background

Sir James “Mad Jim” Jaspers is a powerful supervillain from Marvel Comics who was the archenemy of Captain Britain and Excalibur as well as a few other heroes. Despite his relative obscurity he is considered one of the most powerful mutants in existence. Two versions of him have existed and the most powerful one is the Earth-616 version (which is the mainstream Marvel Earth). His power can be summed up as so: the less powerful alternate-reality Jaspers was so dangerous his entire reality had to be erased to get rid of him. The more powerful mainstream Jaspers threat is so great that Merlyn has suggested he could become an omniversal threat (which means he could theoretically become dangerous enough to destroy/take over entire multiverses).

In the alternate reality of Earth-238, Jaspers led a criminal gang known as the “Crazy Gang”, inspired by Alice In Wonderland. He played the part of the Mad Hatter before he was a criminal. However, Jaspers was also a British politician to managed to outlaw superheroes, then proceeded to create a powerful being by the name of The Fury to exterminate any remaining superhuman beings on the planet. Within two years the world was almost barren of superhuman beings except Jaspers, who had programmed the Fury to not try and kill him. After Captain Britain arrived in this reality and foiled a bank robbery, Jaspers reactivated the Fury, which proceeded to kill both Captain Britain and Jackdaw,. However, Captain Britain was revived by Merlyn and return to Earth-616. The Fury detected this and adapted itself so as to travel across realities. However, when Jaspers unleashed the power of the Jaspers Warp Mandragon, it destroyed the entire Earth-238 reality out of fears of contamination. Presumably this event killed off this particular version of Jaspers.

Upon returning to mainstream reality, Captain Britain found that another Sir James Jaspers was leading an anti-superhero campaign, with the aid of Henry Peter Gyrich and Sebastian Shaw, members of the Hellfire Club (and strongly suggesting Jaspers is also a member of this organization).

Jaspers managed to win a landslide general election victory on his anti-superhero platform and became Prime Minister of Britain. Events began to mirror those of Earth-238 and Jaspers unleashed the force of the Jaspers Warp upon London, causing much chaos and devastation. However (and somewhat ironically) Jaspers found himself under attack from the reality-hopping Fury (which realized he was not the same Jaspers he was programmed not to kill) and the two engaged in a large-scale reality-warping battle in which Jaspers was ultimately killed by the Fury, who teleported him outside the universe. Since Jaspers no longer had any reality to control he was rendered powerless.
