An African white-backed vulture was given neural implants to boost his intelligence to human levels by Flex Corp, a rival company to Multicorp. Equipped with a cybernetic battlesuit and named Tailgunner, he was teamed with the other members of Heavy Metal and given the task of destroying Multicorp's Brute Force. Tailgunner was selected to be a rival to Brute Force's Soar, as vultures and eagles are both large birds of prey. As his name implies Tailgunner prefers attacking his enemies from behind.
