Character History

O.S.I. and Bodyguard

Red worked for the O.S.I. for most of his life and doubled as a bodyguard to Action Johnny, his father, and a young Indian boy named Radjni. He spent his time with them on adventures or fighting the evil Dr. Z. At some unknown point Red stopped being their bodyguard and returned to the Office of Secret Intelligence.

Return to the O.S.I. and Death

He was shown to be one of the more respected members of the agency. Red continued as a field agent for countless years after returning to the agency. Red soon met his end during a fight with Snakemen over the Goliath Serum, which was said to cause whatever ingested the serum to explode within a certain amount of time. Brock Samson was the last person to speak to Red, whom told Brock to tell "Johnny that I love...". Red then died and voided his bowels, about which Brock said they never show in the movies.
