... But he wasn't. At the beginning of Metal Slug 6, Morden and the Mars People were looking for his body, and just as they located it, the Invaders came in.

The primary antagonists of the series, the Rebel Army were formed when Morden defected from the Regular Army over the death of his son. As he was AFatherToHisMen, they followed him out of sheer loyalty, and after merging with various terrorist groups, proved to be so dangerous that the Regular Army were forced to get their act together.
