GQ is a member of one of those many super-elite, heavily-armed, capable-of-dealing-with-superhuman military squads in the early Image Universe. He appeared in the 1996 Limited Series Black Ops.

Here are Nicolas’ vintage notes. We’d like to upgrade them at some point, but these guys are rather low-priority.


  • Real Name: Stephen Connor.
  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: General John Connor (Father), Elizabeth Sworenson (Grand Mother).
  • Group Affiliation: Black Ops, formerly IO, formerly USAF.
  • Base Of Operations: Department PSI.
  • Height: 6’ Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 27
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Before joining IO as a Black Razor, thus receiving their superior combat training, GQ was a hotshot pilot in the USAF.


As a young, brash, hotshot pilot in the Air Force, GQ found himself facing a court martial after allegedly taking a date on a joy ride ride in his F/A-18. If this account is correct, it may have further precipitated the court martial – a two-seater F/A-18 is a Navy plane.

His military career cut short, he was recruited into IO, as a troop-transport pilot. Unable to quell his need for excitement inside a cockpit of an upper-atmosphere jump jet, the young pilot landed himself a position within Black Ops as the transport and combat support element.

For the subsequent Black Ops operations, see Redbird’s character profile.


Stephen is a handsome young white guy. During an operation, whether grounded or flying his craft, GQ wears a mask.


GQ is a lady killer. He’s very confident in his flying skills, and enthusiastic when a dogfight erupts.

In the field, however, he usually relies on his teammates (particularly Redbird as they pair together).

He knows that if they can’t handle the situation, he can’t help and would advise retreat.


“I got it. Go sit down… Link up’s gonna get bumpy.”
