The man who would become the Cockroach is an unnamed merchant and former magician. Due to the influence of Adam Weishaupt (and later Astoria), the Cockroach begins to suffer from multiple personality disorder. The ultimate effect of his psychoses causes him to take on many secret identities, all of them parodies of comic book superheroes. Among his aliases are:
- Captain Cockroach (Captain America)
- Moon Roach (Moon Knight)
- Wolveroach (Wolverine)
- Punisheroach (The Punisher)
- Swoon (Dream)
In most of his personae the Cockroach believes he is helping others; unfortunately, he generally manages to cause mayhem and destruction instead.
