Gus Turpin served on the Chicago Police Department for many years, first showing up during Dart’s arrival in the city. He remained on the forces over the years and was present during the party that was held to celebrate the return of Dragon to their ranks. Gus was subsequently killed when members of the Vicious Circle remote controlled the empty OverLord armour and had it fire off its photon blast to decimate the precinct.
