His physical characteristics, fighting skills, and strength and endurance were increased. Gun Runner would lead a team compromised of other enhanced Vassyrians, Oracle, Heavy Duty and Lure. After a mishap with his ship Warbird, Gun Runner is put into suspended animation for a lengthly period of time, approximately 2 centuries, eventually finding his way and waking up on the planet Earth.
