Ulysses Solomon Archer is a trucker from America. After his parents, also truckers, were killed in an accident, he and his brother were taken in by Poppa Wheelie and Wide Load Annie at the Short Stop Diner[1]. After attending college, he was run off the road by the Highwayman, and the top part of his skull was replaced by an experimental alloy, which gave him the ability to pick up certain radio frequencies. Vowing to track down the Highwayman, he uses his College skills to customise his truck with weapons to aid him in this. Later, he and the staff of the Short Stop are transported into space, where it became the Star Stop, after winning a race against his brother to become a trucker for Al and his species[2]. Having dated Taryn O’Connell, he later married Mary McGrill and had a son when the former chose to stay on Earth. Xemnu tried to convert US’s son into his own race, but was stopped by the Sensational She-Hulk [3].

When Spragg attacked the Star Stop, he recalled the Sensational She-Hulk to battle him and helped her defeat Spragg[4].

Later, responding to a distress call from Taryn and Razorback, he is captured by Skrulls, along with Sensational She-Hulk and Weezi, and later is present when Sensational She-Hulk switches body with Weezi[5].
