After serving in Marine Corps Jim Pruitt joined Anvil. While working for Anvil, Pruitt, Tom Weems, Spencer Geiger and Mike Bashille were assigned to protect diplomats from harm in Iraq. However, the four ended up killing innocent Iraqi civilians in public, with footage of the killings being recorded and uploaded to YouTube. Following the fiasco, the State Department attempted to apprehend all four for murder, prompting them to flee underground and become fugitives.

After being tasked by William Rawlins to gather a team to kill Frank Castle, Billy Russo explained that he needed to outsource a team since his usual team was unwilling, after their team members were murdered during an earlier mission by Castle and Gunner Henderson. Russo sought out the four wanted soldiers, offering them $500,000 each as well as safe passage to a country with no extradition, where they would be able to live the remainder of their lives in peace without fear of being apprehended by the State Department.
