I learned young that killing your enemies felt good; Really good. In America, my friends, my family, they helped me forget the devil inside. But who am I kidding? I was born to kill! That nickname you love so much, wanna know how I got it? Actually, why don’t I give you a demonstration? I think it’s time for Jack... to let’er rip!.
~ Raiden

Raiden is one of the main protagonists of the Metal Gear series. He appeared in the 52nd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Wolverine VS Raiden, where he fought against Wolverine from Marvel Comics. He was voiced by Tim Paige.

History

Jack is an American child soldier who was born in the 1980's and was raised by Solidus Snake. His initial objective was to rescue several hostages from a terrorist group known as the Sons of Liberty. Raiden is helped by mercenary Solid Snake and spy Olga Gurlukovich across his mission. A clandestine organization known as The Patriots is revealed to be controlling his actions, however, with his commanding officer revealed as their computer-generated AI, and one of their spies becomes Raiden's girlfriend, and the two fall in love. Raiden defeats Solidus after being told by the Patriots' AIs that his death would also trigger the deaths of Olga's child and Rosemary, the latter of whom was revealed to have been pregnant with Raiden's child during the mission.

His body was heavily modified after he was captured due to his anti-Patriot activities. The trauma of his breakup with Rosemary, coupled with the apparent miscarriage of his child, have made Raiden believe his only place is on the battlefield. He assists Solid Snake in the fight against Liquid Ocelot wanting to obtain the Patriots' powers. After several encounters with Liquid's men, Raiden stays in the ship Outer Haven to protect Snake as he shuts down the Patriots' AIs. Later Rosemary reveals to Raiden that their child was not miscarried; her marriage to Roy Campbell was a hoax to protect her and their son from the Patriots. Upon hearing this news, Raiden reconciles with Rosemary.
