Cain, who later became RoboCop 2, was the sacrilegiously fanatical cult leader of the Nuke cult. Violently insane, hopelessly addicted to Nuke and godlike in his delusions, Cain was a unpredictable and dangerous foe, with a capable and loyal following. He's the main antagonist of RoboCop 2.
Rise to PowerEdit
- "People want paradise. They will have it."
Not much is known about Cain's past. Yet according to his police record, he was a military veteran who served in the Amazon War. His military career was checkered by a courts-martial for an unknown charge, to which he was convicted then sent to Danmemora Correctional Facility. He was held at Danmemora for four years, until a lapse in security gave him an opportunity for escape. He then relocated to Detroit, and developed the highly addictive narcotic he calls "Nuke."
Maybe you wanna have the kid leave?Edit
Cain first appears in the movie talking on the television, preaching as if to a congregation about the divine and pure power of nuke. He is seen in person at a nuke drug lab when RoboCop steps in and halts the procedures. Out of all the targets in the lab that night, RoboCop was unsuccessful in arresting Cain and his remaining thugs, including Hob and Angie, who all slip out of a rear entrance and get to their waiting limo. Inside the limo, they find an illegal immigrant worker from the drug lab, pleading not to be turned over the police. Cain demonstrates his cold and sociopathic nature by simply shooting her and pushing her out of the limo.
He appears again at the Sludge Plant near River Rouge, where he captures RoboCop and has him disassembled to continue his deeds without interference. RoboCop had got the information from a corrupt, nuke addicted policeman called Duffy. Cain's revenge is terrible. Luring Duffy to a dingy backroom surgery, Cain has him eviscerated whilst still alive, whilst Hob and Angie watch.
Scopolamine. C-cut it with... ssscopolamine.Edit
He is next seen after RoboCop is rebuilt, and leads his fellow officers down to the sludge plant for an assault on the nuke cult. The police officers cleave a path through the guards, but, as they near the buildings where Cain, Hob and Angie are holed up, the three escape in two armoured bomb disposal trucks, laden with nuke and tens of millions of dollars of drug money. RoboCop manages to hitch a lift on Cain's truck, but is thrown off due to his wild and furious driving.
Unfortunately for Cain, his sense of power clouds his judgement and he cannot resist but play a game of chicken with RoboCop, who by this time has commandeered a motorcycle. RoboCop had no intention of playing by the rules though, and threw himself through the windscreen of the truck, critically injuring the drug lord and crippling the vehicle.In a similar, but more nefarious, situation to Alex Murphy's death, Dr. Juliette Faxx, an unethical psychologist working for OCP, visits Cain in hospital. Here, after an unnerving talk with the patient and lying about him already having died, she pulls the plug on his life support, intending to kill him and use some his brain tissue for her RoboCop 2 project.
I give you...RoboCop 2!Edit
Remnants of Cain's personality, memories, and motivations would later emerge in OCP's RoboCop 2. The cyborg was controlled by feeding the Nuke addiction of its organic systems. OCPs first job for the new cyborg was to intercept a deal going down between the Mayor and the new crime lord Hob who's now controlling the Nuke trade along with Angie. As he arrives he begins to kill all occupants, shortly afterwards he finds Angie hiding and they share a tender moment briefly before Cain remembers that she and Hobs left him and he snapped her neck. Then notices Hobs hiding in one of the money trucks then proceeds to open fire on the truck riddling it's hull. As Cain is finishing up the job he spots the Mayor and is ready to open fire but the Mayor escapes down a hatch in time. Later on Murphy arrives and finds Hobs is mortally wounded but stays alive long enough to tell Murphy that RoboCop 2 is actually Cain.
Cain later goes on a rampage during the RoboCop 2 demonstration at the Civic Center after the Old Man begins waving around a tube of Nuke sparking Cains attention for his need of the drug. He begins to become violent starting by flattening the model of Delta City. A short while afterwards Murphy shows up to finish off the monstrosity. Cain proceeds to open fire but his minigun just spins as his weapon functions are shutdown by Dr. Faxx. Cains rips the device controlling the functions out of Faxxs hand and proceeds to activate them then crushing the device. The two begin to fight in the center, later ending up on the roof. After falling off the roof, going through the tarmac and even a explosion doesn't stop the rampaging cyborg. Cain makes it back to street level and begins mow down police opposition and fleeing civilians. After Murphy makes it back to the surface he gets an idea and has Lewis distract Cain by giving him a canister of Nuke. The trick works as Cain is enjoying his drug high. Murphy leaps onto the machines back, after a brief struggle Murphy tears off the back plating, ripping out Cains brain case, shattering it, and crushing the spinal cord finally putting an end to Cain.
