The Grim is a Real Life Superhero in San Diego, California. He is founder of X-Faction and a former member of the Xtreme Justice League.
"A thirty-something year old, San Diego native, I have seen my city go through many changes. Growing up in San Diego, I have been mugged at gun point twice, almost robbed at knife point once. Shortly after I returned from my 6 years in the Navy, my house had been broken into, and my car stolen. I knew something had to be done and a change needed to be made. In 2011, I was shown a magazine article of Mr. Xtreme. I contacted the group and joined the XJL in the summer of 2011. Now leading patrols as The Grim, helping with outreach and community improvement programs is the life for me." - The Grim
Having been the XJL's Director of Operations for some time, on October 12, 2017, Grim announced that he would be stepping down from that position - but not from the XJL - by the end of 2017.
On July 23rd, 2020, the Xtreme Justice League page announced that he was retiring from the group. However, on August 21st, 2020, he explained "... I'm FAR from retired."
His activist work continues with X-Faction.
