Once the war ended, Roger joined Brian and several other heroes in secretly forming a covert group, the V-Battalion, dedicated to preventing anyone like Hitler from ever again threatening the peace of the world. When Brian died in a car crash in 1953, Roger offered to take on the identity as a tribute to his lover, but was denied by Brian's father, Montgomery. Instead he soldiered on as the Destroyer, leading the V-Battalion into the 21st century.Jim Hammond. When the Thin Man revived the Invaders, a resurrected Roger became wary of his true goals, and began to investigate. Nevertheless, he called on the group for assistance against the forces of Baroness Blood, during which fight he came to accept Joseph Chapman as a worthy successor to the Union Jack identity. Following this, Roger and his ally Hammond confronted the Thin Man, and effectively deposed him as leader of the Invaders. Soon after Hammond apparently died fighting the forces of Axis Mundi, and Roger resumed leadership of the V-Battalion.
