The Inheritor was a cockroach, evolved into humanoid form by the Genetic Accelerator of the High Evolutionary to become one of his New Men. However, the Inheritor resented humanity, which had ruled Earth for a relatively short time compared to the length of time cockroaches had been present on Earth. The Inheritor refused to serve in the High Evolutionary's Knights of Wundagore or live by his code, and so the High Evolutionary banished it into space. Without the radiation which had empowered it, the Inheritor's memories began to fade. Eventually a meteor struck its ship and knocked it off course, sending it instead on a course with Earth.
The Inheritor's ship crashed to Earth in the deserts of New Mexico. It easily survived the crash, but could only remember its goal to exterminate humanity, and none of its origins. The Inheritor wandered aimlessly, destroying any humans in its path, eventually encountering a truck carrying cargo from Project: Greenskin. After destroying the truck, it was exposed to its radioactive cargo, which allowed the beginnings of its memory to return. It followed the road to the truck's intended destination, Project: Greenskin, in hopes of finding more radiation.
