In retailing parlance, a 'stock jockey' is a person who carts around products in a shop, unloading, unboxing and shelving them for later purchase. In Fight Squad parlance however, Stock Jockey is a wannabe supervillain with an intimate bond with the products he begrudgingly carts around for minimum wage - nobody knows how he manages it, but at his command letters and numbers on any printed material come alive and do his nefarious (although frequently juvenile) bidding, either on their own or assembled into gestalt 'typo-creatures' with greater flexibility and power. Quite why Stock Jockey remains at his place of employment, and doesn't simply pack it in and take his show on the road? Who knows? But he certainly seems to be enjoying bringing new meaning to 'Clean-up on Aisle three!'
