History

Genghis Eighteen is a character from the 2000 AD strip Harry Twenty on the High Rock. His 'crime' was being a Mongolian man who refused to sell his family land to the military. In the dystopian Earth of the future this didn't go down terribly well, and he was sent to the orbital prison satellite called the High Rock for eighteen years on a trumped-up charge, there to eke out his life under the stern eye of Warden Worldwise.

On arrival Genghis attracted the unwelcome attraction of the racist Guard Pusser, who told him that he disliked "slants" and proved it by immediately putting him on an undeserved punishment detail. Genghis planned to get his revenge by stabbing Pusser with his lunchtime cutlery, but his cellmate Harry Twenty stopped him by punching him. This earned Harry the undying gratitude of Genghis when he realised that, had he succeeded in assaulting Pusser, the guards would have shot him dead.

Genghis became Harry's staunch comrade and helped him build an escape capsule in which they successfully returned to Earth. Unfortunately, he died shortly afterwards when their other cellmate and fellow escapee, Ben Ninety, turned out to be an android spy. But at least he found the rare mutated pearl known as a 'black Maria' before his death, so Harry could use it in his subsequent overthrow of the prison's brutal regime. Plus, his last deed was to fatally harpoon Guard Pusser. Which was awesome.
