Victor woke up a little over two years ago alongside a road in the Mojave Desert with no recollection of his past and no personal effects except the clothes on his back and a note card in his pocket that read “Vic E”. With no other clue as to his identity (and a desire to not be called John Doe), he decided that this must be a clue to his real name.
Flash forward almost 8 months and we find Victor in a back alleyway with six of mafiya thugs (harassing an unarmed victim, of course) and a .38 Special. Vic takes out the thugs in under 10 seconds with no fatalities. Turns out the the man the thugs had been harassing was actually Dr. Philip Kleiner of the CORE. Out of both amazement at Victor’s fighting skills and thanks for saving his life, Kleiner gets him a job as an Experiment Assistant.
It was almost two months before Victor realized there were more than three flavors of ice cream. (clubs)
