The New 52
Following the Flashpoint, a new version of history was created with a different series of events. Ulysses Hadrian Armstrong was a brilliant young man with an exceptional mind and skills. At a young age, he broke through the network defenses of every office of the Pentagon and sent a term paper to them. This saw him recruited at the age of fourteen by a military initiative known as the Colony. The project was headed by Colonel Jacob Kane who was part of a United States of America military initiative that sought to replicate the effectiveness of the Batman of Gotham City during the Zero Year. With the Generals addition, they studied his technology, tactics and skills that they sought to replicate in an entire army patterned after him that were to be deployed to battle threats to the country. (Detective Comics v1 #937)
Colonel Kane was later responsible for expelling Armstrong from the Colony due to his actions and creations. (Detective Comics v1 #970)
He then started the next stage of his plan by activating the nanovirus within various people transforming them into the One-Man Army Corps that he intended to bring order to Gotham and stylised himself as the General. (Detective Comics v1 #978)
