Dusty Simmons is the Original Shield's young sidekick.
One day while Joe Higgins was visiting an airfield, a plane on the ground exploded, killing everybody on board, including the father of a little boy named Dusty Simmons. Suspecting foul play, Joe and his girlfriend, Betty Warren, snooped around. Betty noticed some thugs tampering around in a hangar. They quickly grabbed her, but Dusty saw the confrontation and came to her rescue. Later, the Shield believed the kid showed "plenty of spunk" in saving Betty, and not only asked him if he wanted to be a detective with him, but also shared his true identity. The newly orphaned boy agreed to be his sidekick
