- ―Strongman, as he introduces himself
Mark Coeus is Strongman, one of the Masked Rider Warriors. He first appeared in Saban's Masked Rider, in the episode The Invasion of Leawood. He is the first & only Masked Rider Warrior to actually originate from Earth.
Mark Coeus was born on October 10, 1922 in Boston, Massachusettes to Greek immigrants. His father, a physicist, helped to create the world's first nuclear rocket. His father's work inspired Mark to become obsessed with science, yet he despised the nature of warfare. When he about about 20 years old, Mark married the daughter of one of his father's friends, a wealthy merchant,
When the US was entering World War II, Mark at first chose not to get involved & was planning to stay with his wife, who was four months pregnant. Unfortunately, his wife & father-in-law were killed by Axis submarines while on a merchant shipping trip. Grief-stricken, Mark decided that the only way to avenge his wife was to fight for her; as a result, he joined the US Army.
While battling in Germany, Mark shot who he thought to be an Axis soldier--that person actually turned out to be a priest from the planet Edenoi. Before he died, however, the priest gave Mark an Ecto-Accelerator Belt, telling him that his destiny lied in Edenoi. Just as Mark was about to reject this, the belt teleported him to Edenoi.
Waking up on the deserts of Edenoi, Mark found himself in what appeared to be a silver Masked Rider armor. While trying to figure out where he was, Mark encountered a monster attacking Edenoite citizens. Using incredible strength the suit had given him, Mark was able to defeat the monster. Afterwards, Mark was soon taken to the kingdom, where he was called a hero, being told that he was the answer of hope to the Edenoites. Given the title "Strongman", Mark became the planet's reluctant freedom fighter against the evil kingdom trying to take over Edenoi.
