Alexander is a cloned creation of Dr. Mindbender in the A Real American Hero continuity.
One of ten clones created by Dr. Mindbender when trying to create Serpentor. The ten young clones would grow at a slower rate than normal, and Mindbender nearly abandoned them once he perfected the process to create the mature clone that became Serpentor, but instead placed them in stasis and left them alive unbeknownst to Cobra Commander. Each clone was the amalgamation of history's greatest soldiers. After the defeat of Cobra in 1995, the U.S. government raided Mindbender's secret lab on Cobra Island and recovered the clone children. They were placed in foster care until Serpentor and Dr. Mindbender gathered them in secrecy. Alexander -- named for Alexander the Great -- was adopted by the Williams family. As a team of Joes was investigating the boy after an identical boy named Julius had been abducted, Alexander's older "brother" Hannibal helped him escape by taking the boy and his foster mother in their van and nearly killed Mrs. Williams before the boys got away. The young clones all had a kind of psychic connection to each other. All of the children joined Serpentor and his Coil forces on Cobra Island during the second Cobra Civil War. After the battle, Alexander and the other boys were again placed in the care of the United States government. (v2 #16, 22-25)
