Major Story Arcs
Mission in North Africa
He participates in battling Qat-maddened North African tribesmen who are trying to overthrow their country. During this mission, his teammate Sluk dies in a tank explosion. Battering Ram tries several times to talk to his field leader, Zeitgeist, whom he calls 'Number One', about his role in the team. He is brushed aside each time. Ram makes an effort to calm down Gin Genie displaying a caring attitude which is not shared by the rest of the team.
Coach later sends the team on another mission to Sonic TV to rescue a manufactured boy band called Boys R Us. The mission is described as a freebie, a way to improve the team's public image.
It was a disaster. The last thing he says to 'Number One', before they both got shredded by helicopter fire was "Boss, my role. I think I oughta..." then he gets killed. Everyone but U-Go Girl and the Anarchist die, including the surviving members of the boy band. The helicopter crew that killed Ram is slain by U-Go Girl, dropped from a great height. Anarchist believes that if it wasn't for Battering Ram and Zeitgeist simply being in the way, he would not have been able to leap out of the window in time and make it to safety.
Some time after his death, Wolverine uncovers evidence proving that Zeitgeist and the Coach had planned to kill everyone else off all along.
