Jon, the Viking Prince, was the heroic son of King Rikk in 10th century Scandinavia. The Prince's history has been muddled up by legends and myths as the centuries has passed, which has created an incoherent picture, of which all statements can not be true. What is known is that he embarked on many fantastic adventures, and eventually married a girl named Asa.

Due to his legendary status, the Viking Prince encountered time-travelers on several occasions. He had a fling with a time-lost Black Canary and was used by the villainous Lord of Time as a member of the so-called History's Heroes or Five Warriors from Forever. Later in his life, Jon was transported through time to the second World War, where he battled alongside Sgt. Rock and his Easy Company, and was ultimately believed killed by plastique explosives.
