Gregor Yaschenko Height:
Because of his monstrous appearance many people find Rampage unsettling to look at.Reputation:
Rampage is known for being a destructive monster.Temper:
Rampage can become so angry and enraged that he will simply lash out like a cornered animal. Background:
Gregor Yaschenko immigrated to the United States with his parents at the age of three from the Ukraine. Gregor’s parents, like so many others that lived in the former Soviet Union, wanted a better life for themselves and their children and so were quick to seize the opportunity to leave when the occasion presented itself.
Like many immigrant children, Gregor learned most of his early English by watching television. In particular, Gregor developed a fondness for Saturday morning and after school cartoons, especially those featuring superheroes. His parents, recognizing this as an opportunity, began buying Gregor comic books with what little additional money they had, hoping that his fascination with costumed characters would accelerate his reading skills. While the comics certainly provided ample motivation for Gregor to read, they also provided him with an escape from the difficulties of being the youngest of six children in an immigrant household struggling to make ends meet. Comic books and the colorful characters that populated their pages became a welcome refuge into which Gregor often retreated when the trials of mundane life became too much for him.
As a child, Gregor developed a rich fantasy life centered on superheroes and their amazing abilities. He would often imagine himself in the role of a superhero, possessed of astounding abilities that made him the center of attention for both his family. As Gregor grew older his dreams of costumed heroes evolved into a fascination with superhumans and the seemingly normal, everyday people that were becoming part of that world. When he was a teenager, Gregor’s dreams of somehow developing powers of his own and becoming a hero to the downtrodden bloomed anew. He read news about superhumans and their powers furiously, hoping to discover some common thread, some overlooked piece of information that would enable him too become more than he was and fulfill his life-long dream.
Then one day Gregor received an e-mail from a small biotech firm that was simply titled: “Volunteers needed for research into superhuman abilities.” Unable to contain his excitement, Gregor immediately contacted the company and was at a nearby facility the following day. Although only sixteen, Gregor lied about his age, completed the forms they required and was immediately accepted into the research program. A week later he and several other like-minded candidates, all with dreams of developing superhuman abilities of their own, boarded a bus bound for a research facility in Utah. Once there, they were taken to the facility’s comfortable dormitories and introduced to the project leader, one Doctor White, who explained in detail that each of the candidates would be subjected to a series of simple psychological and physical exams, designed to test each candidates’ reaction to certain types of stimuli. The excited crowd listened intently, signed all the remaining paperwork, and then retired to the facility dormitories to wait their turn.
That was the last time Gregor Yaschenko saw any of his fellow test subjects alive.
By the time she got to Gregor Yaschenko, Doctor White had become obviously discouraged by the results of her project. She had hoped that, given the psychological profiles of the test group she had gathered, at least one of them would have had some type of positive response to the stimuli. By the time she came to Gregor, she had already subjected over two dozen other test candidates to a variety of levels of psychological and physical conditioning and none of them had survived, let alone developed any noticeable degree of superhuman ability. She had high-hopes though that Gregor, being the youngest candidate and, seemingly, the most open to the changes she was trying to achieve, would finally demonstrate a response to the program. Unfortunately, she wasn’t quite prepared for the response Gregor had.
After a nearly a week spent in total sensory deprivation, with absolutely no sensory stimulus other than images and of brutality and violence, the psychoactive drugs that Doctor White had pumped into Gregor finally did something finally happen. Gregor’s mind snapped and with it his body - in moment of desperate rage and uncontrollable anger, Gregor Yaschenko became something else entirely. Now transformed into a hulking monstrosity of muscle and teeth that effortlessly broke out of the containment unit that confined him, while nearly destroying the entire wing of the facility where he’d been staying and killing most of the security staff that attempted to contain him. What had once been Gregor Yaschenko headed into the night, unleashed upon the world.
It didn’t take long for the former Gregor to be discovered as within a day after his escape the now named Rampage had been on a destructive tear and had been fighting with the Army until the point he’d wondered into Wyoming and it’s part of the Rocky Mountains where he first faced off against the Freedom League. It took the entire roster of heroes to defeat Rampage and since that time he’s returned to fight against the League as well as other heroes, often as the pawn of another villain while other times only because he was on one of his infamous destructive rampages.
Rampage is difficult to keep incarcerated in the usual ways by Blackstone’s staff and of those few times he’s has escaped. It’s mostly been due to his powers not being fully countered correctly or a failure in the untested system being used on him, though there have been a couple of times that the likes of Mastermind or the Crime League have liberated Rampage (or made it look as if he managed to escape on his own again) so that they could use him for their own plots.
