Mike Jeffries found the old Torpedo armour hidden in a relative's house. He and Mickey Musashi shared the armour until they both decided that Mickey was better with the armour than Mike was, from that point on, Mickey mainly wore the armour as Turbo.
Volx, the Queen Mother of the alien, shape-shifting Dire Wraiths finally came looking for the Torpedo armour. Since the armour was originally created by the Dire Wraiths to be used in their ongoing war against all other life in the universe, and was lost, she came seeking to reclaim the armour.
Volx ended up at Mike Jeffries home disgused as his second cousin Dan Jones, the son of Brock Jones, the original Torpedo. As Dan Jones, Volx claimed that since the armour was the property of his father, upon his death, it would legally fall to his mother, and she wished for him to have the armour to carry on in his father's name.
While posing as Dan Jones, Volx absorbed Mike's thoughts, memories and his very essence, in actuality, killing him.
