Zach Talone (portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal)

Zach Talone (Alias: Gryffin) is 23 years old and married to Senta Talone. 


Zach in his early years was a bit of a trouble maker. Zach grew up in the Bronx, and he didn't live in the best of neighborhoods. His parents were rarely home, so he hung out with the kids in the neighborhood. The kids knew of Zach's powers and always was asking him to do stuff for them. Zach, just wanting to be accepted and to fit in, did what the kids asked. He didn't necessarily like doing the things he was asked to do, but he felt that the kids would like him more if he did what they wanted. He soon found out that his theroy was false when he was caught and was forced to stop doing everything for the kids. The kids at that point shunned him and treated him like the 'mutant he was'.

Zach eventually ran away from home and lived on the streets for awhile. On his time on the streets, Zach was able to master most of his powers, especially controlling the weather and shifting into a gryffin. Zach decided after living on the streets for a few years that he should do more than just waste his life on the streets, so he found a job and worked to earn enough money to go to college (he was 16 when he went). He ended up becoming a Aero/Space Engineer and got a job at Stark Industries. But while he was in school, he met Senta, a fellow mutant. After their first encounter, Zach couldn't stop thinking about her. He would go out of his way just to spend time with her. It didn't take long for them start dating and Zach eventually proposed to Senta, who agreed to marry him. The two got married and along with their respective jobs, they fought crime together and went on many adventures. One day though, they got seperated for reasons they can't remember and niether one could remember anything before the seperation. 

Life as an Avenger

Even though Zach had lost all of his memory, he still felt like he needed to find something (or someone). So he took off and tried to find the answer to his problems. After a few days of aimlessly flying around, something shot him out of the sky and he crashed through the roof of Mr. Peete's Ice Cream Shoppee, meeting Ashley, Jethro, and Tommy. After some discussions, Zach headed back with the trio to the Stark Tower where Zach was soon inducted into the Avengers. Zach still had this feeling that he was supposed to find the something or someone, but he decided to stay with the Avengers and gather his thoughts.

A few days after joining the Avengers, Senta came along, and Zach felt an immediate attraction, almost as if he had known her for a long time. Of course, Zach couldn't remember anything, so he laid low. Senta and Zach ended up going on an adventure where they found out that they were married. He also found out that they shared an apartment in New York, which they decided to go visit.
