History: (New Warriors IV#9 (fb), BTS) - Trojan was a member of Alphaclan, a team that was in the number twelve spot on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Most Wanted list. Eventually, they encountered the New Warriors, and either a battle ensued, or the New Warriors had only recently finished another, earlier battle (see comments).

  

(New Warriors IV#9) - The two teams faced off, and the Alphaclan moved forward menacingly. The New Warriors distracted Alphaclan with a giant illusion of the Warrior Decibel, and battle commenced.  

    Striking the ground, Wondra caused a shockwave that left the Alphaclan stumbling, then punched Trojan to the ground. He recovered in seconds, and caught Wondra's next punch in his huge hand, then countered with a fist to Wondra's jaw, stunning her. 

    The rest of Alphaclan similarly rallied and were gaining the upper hand when the Warriors unexpectedly turned insubstantial, a trick engineered by Warriors' leader Night Thrasher using phasing technology built into his teammates' armors. 

    Seizing the opportunity while Alphaclan were distracted, Decibel emitted a sonic scream that incapacitated all the villains.

 

(New Warriors IV#9, BTS) - The defeated Alphaclan were left for the authorities.

(New Warriors IV#9) - The TV news that evening reported Alphaclan's capture.

     

Comments: Created by Kevin Grevioux (writer), Paco Medina (penciler) and Juan Vlasco (inker). 

    Alphaclan are very obviously homages to Hanna-Barbera's superheroes. None of them were individually identified in their single appearance, so the names used here are unofficial, placeholders to make it easier to follow their history section - I put them in quotes for the members list to show that, but didn't for the history, because it clutters stuff up too much to do it every single time.
    Trojan is based on Meteor Man of the Galaxy Trio; in astronomy, a trojan is a smaller astronomical object that shares the orbit of a larger one, where the trojan remains in the same, stable position relative to the larger object. Like Meteor Man, Trojan might have been able to change size - certainly, he appears to be smaller once he is defeated.
