So, Netflix brought a superhero franchise for its own in the form of Jupiter’s Legacy as they adapt the comic book series by Steven S. DeKnight, who also serves as the writer and director for the series. The show introduced the bigger world to a new ensemble team of superheroes called The Union with their own powers and motives. Serving the world since 1930, it was high time for the team to pass the torch to the new and younger superheroes of the world. Thus, teaching them responsibility, discipline and care required when you are gifted such powers. But not every young lad listens right and that’s what goes for Jupiter’s Legacy.
One of the standout characters from season 1 of Jupiter’s Legacy was Skyfox probably. There were not many details about him mentioned in the show apart from the fact he left The Union somewhere. But at the end, when we realized he was indeed the villain, tables turned around, and everyone’s eyes were set for him. Comic book fans might be familiar with Skyfox, a.k.a George Hutchence, and the powers he possesses. But not the new fans who are introduced to the world through the Netflix Orignal series.

George Hutchence is one of the founding members of the Union in Jupiter’s Legacy. He goes by the name of Skyfox as his alias. He was the best friend of Sheldon Sampson also known as The Utopian until they had a fallout. It was Sampson’s strict rules that were meant to be followed which led to the downfall between them. Thus, leading Skyfox to quit the Union and become the world’s greatest supervillain we know.
In most of the first season of Jupiter’s Legacy, we sort of explored the foundation of The Union. But not what went down after the formation and how they worked or what went down between Skyfox and them. All we know is he left the Union 40 years prior to the current events. Anyway leading up to the show, we found out it was Skyfox’s plan to take over the team and clone the Blackstar. So we have to wait for more for the second season to know more about what Skyfox’s story is
