The Rogue Trooper was one of the Genetic Infantry, bred to fight in the endless war between the Norts and the Southers on the planet Nu Earth. A creation of the Souther side's scientists at their orbital base, Milli-Com, the G.I's were genetically engineered to survive unaided in the poisonous wasteland that Nu Earth had become, where regular soldiers could not survive without all enveloping 'chem suits'. When the rest of the male G.I's (the females were used on Milli-Com as support staff) were all killed on airborne assault in what became known as the Quartz Zone Massacre, Rogue discovered that a traitor at Milli-Com, one of the Generals, had betrayed them. Taking up the helmet, rifle and backpack of three of his murdered friends, containing the 'bio-chips' (digitally preserved minds) of the three-Gunnar, Helm and Bagman-Rogue went AWOL to track down and kill the Traitor General, intending afterwards to return his 'Bio-chip Buddies' to Milli-Com where they could be 'regened' (given new cloned bodies) by the 'Gene Genies' (scientists). After several adventures, and encounters with oddball characters like the body looters Mr Brass and Mr Bland, the fanatical G.I Major Magnam (whose chip had been preserved in his handgun) and the female G.I Venus Bluegenes, Rogue eventually succeeded in his quest. He later went to work for Milli-Com again in another warzone but was evntually contacted by a mysterious race of aliens who wanted him to assassinate a number of high ranking Nort and Souther officers in order to end the war; Rogue and the Bio-chips agreed to do this and went AWOL again, but eventually discovered that they were being manipulated. With the Bio-chips placed in new, infant clone bodies supposedly with no memory of their former lives (and hence, in Rogue's eyes, a second chance at innocence), Rogue left his boys with a couple of benevolent scientists and walked off into the wilderness.
Years later, having been reunited with the now adult again Gunnar, Helm and Bagman and with Venus Bluegenes under unrevealed circumstances, Rogue encounterd the second generation G.I named Friday, who had also been manipulated by his superiors and gone rogue. They embarked on a mission together, but Helm was killed and Gunnar reduced to Bio-chip status and placed in his gun again when they invaded an alien spaceship. Friday and Venus escaped, taking Gunnar with them, but Rogue and Bagman were left on the sabotaged ship which blew up minutes later, taking them with it. Rogue's remains (and his mangled Bio-chip) were later discovered by an alien life form which used his DNA as the template create a new clone, the man named Tor Cyan.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
PowersAble to survive in environments toxic to normal humans.
AbilitiesLike all G.I's, Rogue's brain contained an implanted 'Bio-chip' into which his mind would be downloaded at the moment of his physical death; the dying G.I's comrades then had sixty seconds in which to remove the chip from the brain and place it in a special slot in a piece of their equipment where it would continue to 'live' in a digitized state until a new clone body could be provided; if left longer than sixty seconds though, the Bio-chip would 'die'.
Greater than normal human.
EquipmentHelmet containing sensors which could be used by a Bio-chip, and backpack containing numerous items of equipment and weaponry including grenades and mines, any of which could be deployed remotely also by a Bio-chip.
Rifle containing the Bio-chip of his comrade, Gunnar, which the chip could activate remotely if Rogue was incapacitated.
