Rene always looked up to his Uncle Guy. Seeing that Rene didn’t know who his real father was it only seemed natural. However, this closeness almost cost him his life.

His uncle had been receiving some threats about his business, which his uncle had ignored. Rene was supposed to meet his uncle at his remote research and development lab near Strasbourg so they could go over some plans. Rene was late getting there due to a flat tire on his bike. It turned out that Rene was later than he knew.

The first clue that things were wrong was the huge German coming out of the building. Rage spotted the youth who was running towards him. Thinking it might be fun to hurt the kid, he spared some time to flex his muscles. A quick kick sent Rene flying through a window of the building where he crumbled on the floor. Rage was impressed with his newly acquired powers, and seeing his message had been sent, he left.

Rene wasn’t sure how long he laid on the floor but woke to a lot of pain. However, his concern was for his uncle. When Rene found his uncle he was sure the man was dead. There was so much blood, and his limbs were twisted at odd angles.

Rene almost screamed in shock when his uncle's eyes opened. Obviously in a lot of pain, Uncle Guy told him how to operate the machinery in his lab. Using the last of his strength Rene was able to help his uncle survive the attack. Together they put Guy back together again. This time, however, as the cyborg known as Bras Fort or Armstrong.

As for Rene a piece of glass from the window had burst into a vertebrae, and even after an operation to remove the fragment he was paralyzed from the waist down. However, this has never kept him down. Rene is now the head of the L’Estrie Industries R&D department, a dream job for any nineteen year old. However, he does seem to make time to get involved in his uncle's crime fighting adventures.


Rene is a lot like his uncle in that science is very important to him. He’s always looking for new ways to change the designs that the family company produces. At times he can be obsessive about his research, and doesn’t have much of a social life. However, none of this ever keeps Rene down. He has a bubbly personality and being confined to a wheel chair won’t even hold him back.


“Of course the routing of the servo-motors must go through this section.”


Rene has a keen intellect. His knowledge of electronics is second to none, almost of par with his Uncle Guy. Since the assault on him by Rage, he has been confined to a wheelchair. Without his chair Rene wouldn’t be able to get around at all.


Rene is a thin young man. His legs are very thin due to atrophy. He has short brown hair and glasses. With his obsession with his job, he doesn’t shave often, so he usually has a five o’clock shadow.
