Biography[edit | edit source]

The exact true history of Cockroach and even his true name is unknown.  It is known that he is both a former magician, as well as a merchant.  Due to the influence of philosopher and leader of the Order of the Illuminati, Adam Weishopt, the Cockroach developed multiple personality disorder.  This caused the merchant to take on the identity of a superhero, calling himself the Cockroach.  Over time, the Cockroach has multiple encounters with Cerebus, an aardvark barbarian, much to Cerebus' chagrin of having to deal with such an unpredictable character.
