    A.J. was born on a stormy night in a cloud of controversy about his paternity. The child had a heart condition and was nearly claimed by Rick, who believed himself the father. A DNA test proved Alan was the dad. The baby was bumped from home to home before leaving for boarding school and coming back much older. He returned to Port Charles, soon winding up in jail on drunk driving charges. Family members attempted to bribe him to stay out of trouble but it wasn't easy. Nikki Langton began dating him to get at his fortune but his father paid her to leave him at the altar.

    A.J. continued to drink and sleep around. When his father's lover wound up dead with evidence incriminating both Alan and Junior, A.J. framed Jagger for it. He kept drinking. During one episode, he wound up in another accident, this time causing his brother Jason's brain trauma. Depressed about this, A.J. drank even more. This led to him sleeping with Carly, an event so traumatic he could only recall it under hypnosis. Thanks to this, he managed to figure out she was trying to pass his child off as Tony Jones'. She decided to claim the child was Jason's so she could maneuver out of the paternity test. A.J. and Carly eventually settled their differences, but that didn't last long. When she got pregnant again, he agreed to claim paternity in order to get revenge on his brother. The child turned out to be Sonny's. The child was lost when she fell down a stairway after a fight with A.J. He was disinherited and went back to drinking and sleeping around.

    After nearly dying of alcohol poisoning and hearing of his mother's own near-death experience, he decided to reconcile with his family. He and fellow alcoholic, Skye, tried helping each other deal with their disease. They also tried pulling Michael back into the family when he was being kept away by Sonny. In order to annoy the mobster, A.J. married his little sister, Courtney, and then offered a divorce in exchange for Michael. However, he ended up actually falling for his wife. Their relationship rapidly deteriorated as they both acted recklessly and she began relying on Jason, increasing A.J.'s jealousy. After hiring Coleman to terrorize her, she ended the marriage and A.J. blamed Jason. Teaming up with Skye, they framed Jason and Brenda for Alcazar's murder. After Ned was framed for rape, A.J. took over ELQ, but he didn't stay long. Once he fell for Lydia, he ripped off the family and left town. He later returned to kidnap Michael and the Corinthos kids. When Alan tried to stop him, he shot him. Winding up in the hospital himself after breaking his back in the skirmish, he flatlined after being supposedly murdered by Asher Thomas. Monica managed to bring him back from the dead and Steve Webber faked his autopsy so they could ship him overseas to recover.

    He returned to Port Charles following the apparent death of Jason.
