Cowboy Ninja Viking was originally a comic book story that debuted in 2009. It was created by writer A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. The story is about patients who have multiple personality disorder and Dr. Sebastian Ghislain forms a counter-intelligence unit with them.

Duncan is one of the main characters and he is a Triplet who has the skills of a Cowboy, a Ninja, and a Viking.
Duncan is used to find and stop rogue Triplets from the unit. Now the story is to be transformed into a movie which is set for release in 2019.
