Rocket Man started as a character in a golden age super hero role playing game. When I made my own modern world for a super hero RPG I took my favorite characters and updated them. This was in 2005 and I have been making up new people to populate the world and new adventures for them to have for the last eight years. Not all the stories I came up with have been superhero stories, in fact most were fantasy, or sci-fi. The story of RM5 is one that will take a while to tell, being that I have a timeline for the universe that goes from 1929 to about 2033.
