(NFL SuperPro Special Edition#1 (fb) ) - Ron Macedon was quarterback for the Chicago Bears. He met Phil Grayfield the day Grayfield had his tryout with the Bears and they immediately became friends. After a workout with Grayfield, Ron's on fell from the bleachers and Grayfield saved his life and injured his knee again. Ron and his son visited Phil in hospital and introduced him to Gessermann and Harriss, who wanted Grayfield as a reporter for Sports Inside.
(NFL SuperPro Special Eedition#1 (fb) - BTS) - One day Ron Macedon overheard Bennings talk about a steroid delivery and he told Phil Grayfield about it and Grayfield stopped it as SuperPro.
(NFL SuperPro Special Edition#1) - At training in the Giants Stadium Macedon met his old friend Phil Grayfield and talked with him. Grayfield thanked him for the tip with the steroids and Macedon told him that he had the info from Bennings. Ron assumed that Bennings was taking steroids himself.
Macedon told Bennings' friends about his death and they told him that they tried to stop Bennings, but he was already too far gone. Macedon only asked them how far gone they were and after he had left the locker room they flushed their steroids down the toilet.
(NFL SuperPro#5) - Grayfield visited Macedon at the Chicago Bear's training camp and told him that he could be the Head Hunters' next target because they still needed a quarterback. Macedon poured Gatorade over Grayfield when he told him that the only reason they would come for him was because the Head Hunters had already players from the quarterbacks that were better than Macedon. Minutes later a dirigible arrived in the stadium and Macedon was really abducted by the Head Hunters. They brought him to an abandoned stadium where he was thrown into a cage. Some time later Macedon, Lawrence Taylor and other great NFL players had to play the Head Hunters and the game wasn't fair. SuperPro, who was also caught, helped them after breaking out of his cage. With his help the Head Hunters were defeated and only their coach and his daughter got away.
(NFL SuperPro#8) - Macedon participated in an anti-drug campaign headed by John Macaphee. He gave a speech at Soldier Field with Macaphee and other supporters of the campaign, but at the same time Crossbones hid drugs in Macedon's locker for Marco Sanzionare. Ron was arrested for drug possession after Macaphee got a tip. SuperPro helped to reveal the truth and the police dropped the charges against Macedon. At another press conference Macaphee hoped that Macedon would still be part of the anti-drug campaign while Ron thanked Captain America and SuperPro for their help.

He was the head of an anti-drug campaign supported by the NFL. At a press conference at Soldier Field NFL greats like Macedon, Cincinnati Bengals' Anthony Munoz, Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Thomas and Washington Redskins' head coach Joe Gibbs were his guests. He left the podium when he got an urgent message and let Ron Macedon talk for awhile. He learned of drugs in Macedon's locker and had him arrested. He assured everyone that he would make sure that Macedon would never play football again. When it turned out that Macedon was framed by Sanzionare and Crossbones, Macaphee and SuperPro gave another press conference in which Macaphee stated that Macedon was no longer under suspicion. Macaphee hoped that Macedon would continue to support the anti-drug campaign.
