History

Background

Whitesnake gives McQueen a DISC

At one point, a girl promised McQueen that she would be her friend but then moved away, depressing him.

McQueen was sentenced to 8 years in prison for having shot a woman, which he claims was a freak accident when he picked up a gun to clean it and it went off at the same moment the woman fell past his window while attempting suicide by jumping from the 11th floor of his building.

At one point near his stash of money, McQueen encounters Whitesnake, who expresses appreciation for his uniquely twisted mind and gives him the ability Highway to Hell.

Stone Ocean

McQueen first appears as a janitor reaching up Ermes Costello's skirt to steal her money. Ermes later uses her power to make a trap and duplicates a mop to trap the janitor's face in between the mops when he passes by, knocking him out. Ermes notices that DISCS are sticking out of his head and instinctively takes one of them. McQueen learns that Ermes has inquired about him and confronts her in the toilets.

McQueen is happy to talk to a woman but decides to hang himself

Ermes angrily accuses him of being a creep for having discs sticking out of his face and McQueen bursts into tears as he cannot remember what he's recently done and where he used to hide his money, blaming himself. Ermes asks him if he's okay and McQueen is moved to have a woman caring about his well-being. Figuring that he'll never meet a woman who'd truly care for him, McQueen decides to end his life and hangs himself on a pipe with his belt. Highway to Hell activates and begins to choke Ermes as well. Ermes uses her power to make the belt snap, saving the two of them for the moment. McQueen is seemingly grateful and explains that he's depressed and hung himself on a whim. But, when Ermes asks how he obtained his ability, McQueen doesn't understand what she's talking about. McQueen says he is indebted to her and promises to live a proper life, but as soon as she turns her head, McQueen attempts to drown himself in a faucet.

Ermes manages to knock McQueen out of the faucet. Again, McQueen expresses depression because there is no way he could repay her and even talk to her again. Furious, Ermes tells McQueen not to approach her again and threatens to kill him but McQueen agrees to the idea. Freaked out, Ermes flees. Having seen her pull out a DISC from the toilets, McQueen instinctively feels that it belongs to him. He feels like dying again.

Ermes knocks out McQueen's Stand DISC

McQueen tries to electrocute himself but fails because he doesn't have saline water to conduct electricity through his body. He thus heads to the medical room to take saline water. Ermes finds in the medical room tied with a denuded power cable and ready to electrocute himself to death. He douses himself in saline water and a panicking Ermes tries to dissuade him from killing himself. She explains that he risks killing her alongside himself and tries to make him see the bright side of life. McQueen explains the extremely unlucky circumstances in which he was condemned for murder. Seeing him ready to end his life, Ermes tries to promise her to give him her panties but McQueen retorts that she's only being nice to save herself and calls himself trash again. Ermes loses her composure and speaks her mind, calling him a selfish scum who only thinks of himself. This pushes McQueen over the edge, who decides to kill himself and Ermes so that they can die together. Ermes runs towards McQueen who flips the switch to electrocute himself. Thankfully, she manages to put a sticker on McQueen's face. The sticker duplicates McQueen's head and burns out due to the electricity, making the two heads fuse together. The shock knocks Highway to Hell's Stand DISC out of McQueen, making him harmless.[2]
