|“||There is no end. Always another, John.||„|
|~ Deveraux's last words|
Luc Deveraux is the main protagonist of the Universal Soldier series. However, in the latest installment, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, he is now the main antagonist. He is played by Jean-Claude Van Damme. After his mission in the Chernobyl power plant, he has shaved off his hair and resembles Walter E. Kurtz from Apocalypse Now and returned in the United States, now living in an underground bunker with his former nemesis, Andrew Scott. The two have now teamed up and have created an army of violent UniSols. A cloned soldier named "John" has false memories implanted inside of him to go after Deveraux. The government also sends in a clone of the NGU, Magnus, to kill Scott, only for Scott to inject him with a serum. He is freed from his programming by Deveraux, who brainwashes him to kill John. After John kills Magnus, John enters a cabin and meets with the original John, whom he was cloned from. While the original John tells him he was brainwashed by Deveraux, the original John is killed by the cloned John when the original tries to attack. John is eventually taken to the UniSol compound, where he tries to have his false memories removed, but he is driven insane, and he fights his way through the bunker, killing every UniSol in the process. He also kills Scott in a shootout by stabbing his throat with a machete. He eventually encounters Deveraux at the church, and John finally kills Deveraux by stabbing him in the stomach.
