History

Turner was introduced and later killed in the story Trifecta. He was the Archmime of the Church of Simpology (a religion which embraced absurdity) in Mega-City One at the time of Judge Carolyn Bachmann and Enormo Overdrive's attempt to conquer the city and replace it with one of their own construction. Rogue Judge Jack Point, who had become unwittingly involved in the conspiracy, ran to the Church for sanctuary from Justice Department and Turner (who spoke only in mime, with a hat-bot translating his performance art gestures into speech) agreed to get Point offworld as a Simpriest for five million credits.

However, Turner was in league with Bachmann and Overdrive (who'd have guessed?) and betrayed Point, attempting to have him killed while escaping. Point escaped the trap, so Turner was forced to resort to killing him personally, but Point was saved by a member of Turner's own Simp cult, who blew his head off after Point had reversed their mental conditioning.

The Church of Simpology turned out to have been nothing more than a massive research experiment into ways of brainwashing Judges and citizens (through sleep machines and Tri-D players) to obey the will of Judge Bachmann in her new godcity (built by Enormo Overdrive). This research was both carried out on and funded by the rich, gullible idiots who handed over all their creds in exchange for having their post-Chaos Day angst erased from their brains and replaced by custard-flavoured docility.
