Johnson started out as a very diminutive junior executive and was regularly seen with his friends Bob Morton and Mr. Kinney. During a board meeting, Johnson witnessed an unfortunate malfunction during Dick Jones' ED-209 demonstration, resulting in the death of Mr. Kinney.
Johnson assisted Morton with his RoboCop program and was present at RoboCop's installation at the Detroit Police Department's Metro West precinct. Later, Morton was killed in his home by Clarence Boddicker.
Dick Jones was soon revealed to be behind the murder of Bob Morton. Jones was then shot by RoboCop and Johnson was actively pleased, even rising to his feet with what seemed like anticipation as Dick stumbled towards and through the glass windows of the boardroom. After Jones fell to his death, Johnson smiled and gave RoboCop a thumbs-up.
RoboCop 2 programEdit
Johnson was put in charge of the RoboCop 2 program, but after failing to deliver a working prototype he was replaced by Dr. Juliette Faxx. Later he convinced the Old Man to use Dr. Faxx as a scapegoat for the botched and destructive demonstration of second RoboCop.
Johnson continued to work at OCP after the company was acquired by the Kanemitsu Corporation, with a new CEO running the company. While Johnson was more or less an obedient lap dog for OCP, There were times when he had more conscience than most and actually had respect for RoboCop. He also thought there were times when the company was going too far.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Johnson was played by actor Felton Perry.
Johnson's first name is never spoken on-screen in either of the three original films, only mentioned in the ending credits of the second film. In the ending credits of the first and third films he is listed as "Johnson" only.
