Ramyar the goat herder was a simple shepherd in the mountains of northern Iran. As a simple man he generally ignored or avoided the religious fanaticism that had swept Iran for the past several decades. For Ramyar the only thing that mattered to him were his flock of goats. In the spring and the summer he’d drive them up into the mountains and in the winter back down to lower pastures.

Ramyar was very much the hermit having little contact with other people. This was to be a good thing. It was during one summer that his Uber-gene became active. A pair of fully articulated wings seemed to have bloomed from his back almost overnight.

At first Ramyar was horrified by the transformation, but once he discovered that he could fly it was like being born again. Flying was the most incredible experience in his life. Unfortunately it brought him to the attention of the local ayatollah. Ramyar was denounced as a devil, and soon an army battalion was sent to deal with Ramyar.

Ramyar was confused when the army started shelling his flock and took to the sky to escape the attack. Soon a jet fighter was firing missiles at him. His confusion quickly turned to fear and then to anger. This anger is what triggered Ramyar’s second uber-ability. Ramyar grew to humongous proportions. He batted the fighter from the sky but soon another took its place. This time Ramyar wasn’t so lucky. A well-aimed shot sent him crashing into the ground and soon he was captured by the army.

He was taken to a secret research facility in Tehran. Ramyar wasn’t aware how long he was there, but a lot of experiments were ran on him. However, one night during a severe sandstorm, a man wearing a strange suit of armor broke into the facility and rescued him. This man called himself Iron Amir. Together they fled Iran, and Ramyar who has since taken the code-name Roc has never returned to Iran even though he still misses his lost goats.

Iran, of course, would like to get him back. They’re still not done with their experiments.


Ramyar has always been uncomfortable in enclosed places. When the Iranians were studying him they kept him in a small room. It developed into full blown claustrophobia. Now Ramyar can’t stand to be in an enclosed place without eventually freaking out.


“My spirit is in the sky.”


Roc is an Uber with a full set of wings growing from his back. His wings are incredibly strong and can lift Roc up with ease. At times, Roc can put on a burst of speed flying even faster. His eyesight has also increased dramatically allowing Roc to see things quite easily.

His second power is the ability to grow to the height of a giant. When Roc grows into a giant his strength becomes uber-human. Not only does his strength increase, but so does his ability to resist damage. In his giant form, Roc can generate bursts of wind that can blow things that aren’t tied down kilometres away.


Ramyar is a dusky skinned man with long black hair. Growing from his back are a pair of black wings that are fully functional. Roc doesn’t wear a costume, because whenever he grows into a giant all his clothes, except for a loincloth are destroyed in the sudden growth. Ramyar typically likes to wear just a pair of trousers and leaving his chest bare because it’s impossible to get clothing over his wings. Plus it would be uncomfortable.
