Will Shane was The Shane and the father of Eli Shane. He once met Red Hook and was given the Defender Slipstream XVL. He was rivals with Thaddius Blakk, and he brought him to justice time and again. One day, he was lured to a large spot by Blakk and he used his Tempesto, which created a large vortex. Blakk escaped, but Will was unlucky. Acting quick, Will sent his Infurnus slug Burpy to Eli and he was sucked into Tempesto's vortex.
