Explanation of the conversion: Aegis has two different Armor powers. The first is from that fact that he is wearing a nearly indestructible breastplate, which protects his chest. The second is a slot in his multipower for when he covers his body with a skin-tight force field. He can also create a force wall, but it leaves his body more vulnerable. His wall can only be created from his body and move out from it, it cannot not be created at a distance.

New Warriors II #0 History: Not much has been revealed about the early life of the teenager Trey Rollins. In recent years, he found a breastplate and discovered it had magical powers (New Warriors II #0).

Creating an costumed identity for himself based on his familiarity of Greek mythology, Rollins, now Aegis, fought street-level crime in his New York neighborhood. He earned a reputation as a champion of the downtrodden and oppressed.

Later, Aegis joined with other young heroes to stop a rampage of the extradimensional Blastaar. The heroes, former members of the New Warriors, decided to re-form the team, and Aegis was invited to join with them (New Warriors II #1).

At first Trey was reluctant to let them know his secret identity, but he eventually learned to trust his team mates. Aegis fought alongside the New Warriors in their subsequent adventures.

At one point, the god Hercules confronted Aegis and brought him and the New Warriors to Olympus, claiming that Rollins had stolen the breastplate. Instead, the goddess Athena revealed that she had placed the breastplate where Rollins could find it, it was a gift and Rollins was her next chosen champion, in the line of Jason, Achilles, Theseus, Odysseus, and Perseus, who had previously used the breastplate to slay the monster Medusa. Rollins accepted his new duty, and the Warriors were returned to Earth.

He was among the heroes incapacitated by Graviton when he attempted to take over the Earth once again (Thunderbolts #57).

Powers: Trey Rollins has no superhuman powers, but possesses a magical breastplate as part of his costume. The breastplate can magically protect Rollins from any form of harm, by absorbing energy attacks or acting as a force field. Rollins has been able to reflect energy in a desired direction. The limits of the breastplate's protection remains unknown, but has been able to withstand blows from the god Hercules.
