Winthrop "R. U. Reddy" Roan, Jr. squandered much of his wealthy father's money in high profile loose living. When his father gave him an ultimatum, he began a career in rock music, but he soon gave up on it in favor of motorcycles--a move that prompted his father to cut him off completely.
The brash and outspoken Winthrop joined Team America (later renamed The Thunderiders) in an effort to earn enough money to pay his father back.
Reddy excels at fearlessly performing seemingly impossible motorcycle stunts.
He is also a mutant who shares a mental link with the other members of The Thunderiders. The Thunderiders can project their physical strength, abilities and knowledge into a host body. This host body takes on the form of a black-leather-clad individual known as The Black Marauder.
