Shore Leave is a former OSI agent who worked with Brock Samson and Hunter Gathers. Supposedly he was forced out of the agency after a "don't ask, don't tell" beef.

Afterwards, he joined his "partner" Sky Pilot (formerly Mile High), to lead the fastest growing youth ministry in southern California, The Action Bible School.

When action is called for the two would join up and become the Soul Mates. Holy Diver suits up in bible-themed armor and , eventually, possibly, fights wrongdoings. Mostly through prayer.

Brock meets up with the Soul Mates while on the run [1] in hope of using their boat to get the Venture family to safety on Spider-Skull Island. Unfortunately the duo refuse to use violence and Brock is attacked by the assassin Go-Fish.

It was later revealed[2] that "Holy Diver" and the Soul Mates were a cover to mask Shore Leave and Sky Pilot's involvement with the newly recreated S.P.H.I.N.X.

It was revealed in Everybody Comes to Hank's, that he had a romantic relationship with The Alchemist, which appeared to be fully rekindled by the end of Operation: P.R.O.M.

He also supposedly went through a short-lived, ill-conceived Madonna period. In Bot Seeks Bot Shore Leave takes the alias Red Throated Loon to infiltrate a nightclub run by one of the Guild's Council of 13.

Fun Facts[edit]

  • Shore Leave's appearance mirrors that of various members of the Village People (essentially an amalgam of the "Military Man" and the "Leatherman") as well as the G.I. Joe character Shipwreck.
  • Shore Leave's profile, mustache, sexual orientation, and muscular physique, are all very similar to openly gay Marvel character, Hector, of the superhero family the Pantheon.
