Not much is known about Dr Renegade other than the fact that he presumably died during the Cold War. He was resurrected almost 20 years later - seeking revenge on S.T.R.I.K.E. During his wrath, he discovered Max's power and used his DNA to create unlimited power in which he turned into weapons. Renegade's driving ambitions are to kill Arcadian and enslave Earth as a stepping stone to dominating the universe. Although none of his attempts to kill Arcadian work permanently, Renegade routinely manages to escape from prison and threaten the world again. Dr Renegade has the physical capabilities and limitations of a normal adult with no metahuman abilities. However, he possesses a genius level of intelligence.

Demonstrating enormous superhuman strength, stamina, and durability, Vataquin can absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy and is capable of telekinesis, telepathy and matter manipulation.
