So.... going from one Video game character most people on this site probably never heard about to another. Nathan 'Rad' Spencer. A.K.A. the Bionic Commando. Granted, I don't know much about the guy besides Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but in that game he's pretty friggin' sweet. He has this nice cynical and boiserous air about him, he looks cool in full army gear and a bionic arm that actually LOOKS mechanical. And he fights like a charm. In a game where the A.I. likes to play keep-away, moves that grab them and pull them close for an uppercut are a gift from above. And sometimes it just feels good to bash someone's face in with a fist twice as large as their head.


Yeah, I'm rambling. But hey, that's what blogs are for.

OH wow,

How adorable to see a capcom fan appear. I knew one was bond to appear on this board.

My dear here you go,

Nathan "Rad" Spencer is the hero from theBionic Commando series. In the Bionic Commando Classic game for the NES, his job is to search for the missing Super Joe. He also appears in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, sporting the design seen in the 2009 Bionic Commandogame.


Nathan Spencer was originally a member of the Federal States of America's armed forces, but his military career was cut short when he lost his left arm to a grenade. While on rehabilitation leave, he accepted a position as the first test subject for bionics technology by T.A.S.C., the FSA military's intelligence division. He was given the codename: Research And Development #1, or RAD #1, and the name stuck; many continued to call him "Rad" Spencer for years.

Under the supervision of TASC agent and supervisor of bionics technology Joseph Gibson, Nathan was the first human subject to be fitted with and control a bionic limb. Though the technology was still in the prototype phase, the fascistic Imperial Army attacked, and TASC's first operative, Super Joe, was captured. Nathan was activated early and sent into the field, given the field rank of Captain, and sent to rescue Joe and stop the Imperials. He succeeded with flying colors and his statue, along with Super Joe's, now decorates the Avenue of Heroes in Ascension City, along with other heroes of the conflict. Super Joe was promoted to Director of TASC, and he and Spencer oversaw the training of the TASC Special "bionic commandos", just like Spencer. This unit would come to be legendary as the deadliest fighting unit in the world.

However, bionics technology proved divisive, and the populace grew weary of being normal humans in a world of super-powered bionics. Demonstrations and riots followed, coming to a head when a group of rogue bionics was accused of aiding a rebellion against the FSA. The investigation found Nathan Spencer the sole perpetrator of all crimes, and he was convicted and sentenced to death by a military tribunal. He was actually innocent of all charges, but despite proclaiming this, his appeal was denied. He was stripped of his bionic arm and placed in the TASC Military Disciplinary Facility in Fort Leavenworth to await execution.

The anti-bionics sentiment came to a head, and a new executive order known as the Bionic Purge was passed almost overnight, outlawing bionics technology. Merely being a bionic became against the law, and bionics were forced to hand in their implants or face prosecution. As a convicted criminal on death row, Nathan could do nothing to oppose the move and became despondant. On the day he is scheduled to be executed, however, an experimental WMD known as the Witherer is detonated in Ascension City, annihilating it and its citizens, and Nathan is given a chance at a pardon in exchange for tracking down and apprehending the perpetrators, known only as BioReign.


(Good timing . . . I just needed a new playground.s?) ~*lilith*
