First Appearance: Wrath#2 (February, 1994)
The three members of the Radicals have received genetic enhancements
that augment their strength, speed and agility to peak human levels.
They are all extremely skilled in parkour
and well-trained in several forms of hand-to-hand combat, notably
kickboxing and judo, with athlete-level fitness and endurance, and do
not rely on weapons for primary attack. They are each
brutal in nature.
(Wrath#3 (fb) - BTS) - As the group the Radicals, Albright, Boam, Marcus and Thomas Hunter, all full of hubris, trained with covert organization Aladdin for Project W with one to be selected as agent Wrath.
(Skybox Ultraverse II Origins trading card #49) -
Each of the Radicals received genetic enhancements as part of Project W
that boosted their strength, speed and agility.
(Wrath#3 (fb) - BTS) - Hunter proved the most stable and was chosen, but this
left the other three furious at Hunter. The female Albright and Hunter
were romantically involved, but Hunter's selection ended things.
Stealing files, the three angrily deserted and killed agents as they
left, almost ending Project W. The Radicals engaged in mercenary work
and thievery to survive, also indulging in sociopathic violence.
(Wrath#1) - A year later, Aladdin's Dr. Vincent
Esquida, keen to eliminate Wrath in order to implement his own Project
Patriot, contacted Marcus to engage the Radicals on an unsanctioned
(Wrath#2) - The Radicals waited for word when to
launch their kill mission against Wrath. They owed an unrevealed debt
to Esquida and would do the job for free.
(Wrath#3) - Impatient to kill Wrath, the Radicals
targeted and killed three defenseless homeless men. Jumping across
buildings and engaging in aggressive banter, they selected a rooftop to
ambush Wrath, not realizing they in turn were being stalked by
mysterious vigilante Slayer. Meanwhile, Esquida sent Wrath on a mission
to apprehend the Radicals. Keen for payback for the Aladdin agents
killed, Wrath unwittingly walked into their trap and they attacked in
unison. Wrath was nearly overwhelmed until Slayer intervened, shooting
Boam at close range with a hidden gun before disappearing. Having
discovered Esquida's treachery, Aladdin agents arrived and sedated
Marcus and Albright for incarceration, while Boam underwent emergency
surgery. All the Radicals were held in Aladdin's "Watchdog" base.
Comments: Created by David Ammerman.
A very slight variation in their uniform in their 2 comic appearances: the men wore their "underpants" inside their costumes in their later fight against Wrath. Furthe, the trading card has their mask as all green with yellow eye highlights.
David Ammerman is credited as the sole character creator and designer on the Skybox card.
