Dr Travis was the chief scientist at the Darkmoor Research Centre and the mentor of Brian Braddock. When the villainous Reaver attacked the centre in order to steal their research into a new fusion process, Travis was stunned but Braddock escaped and later defeated the villain after being granted the power of Captain Britain. Years later, Travis asked Braddock to return to Darkmoor in order to help him with a new project: generating energy using particles of antimatter. Unfortunately, the project was almost immediately attacked again, this time by the cyborg mercenary Assassin-8. Poor old Dr Travis appears to be jinxed.
