- This article is about Rick Sanchez (C-137). You may be looking for other versions of Rick.
Richard "Rick" Sanchez (C-137) is the co-eponymous main character and leading protagonist of the Rick and Morty comic series, he is the ex-husband of Mrs. Sanchez, the father of Beth Smith, the father-in-law of Jerry Smith, and the maternal grandfather of Summer Smith and Morty Smith. He is a genius scientist whose alcoholism and reckless, sociopathic behavior is a source of concern for his daughter's family over the safety of their son. This Rick is somewhat similar to the mainstream Rick Sanchez, but does diverge on some personality and historical details.
Rick's jumping between dimensions is even more unclear and foggy in the comic series. But as it starts out, he seems to be living with his C-132 counterparts who appear to have had little to no interactions with other counterparts outside of their dimension. His wife though, hasn't been mentioned yet.
His personality is essentially the same as C-137 Rick's but he is less wary of his Morty becoming cocky.
Differences From C-137
This Rick, while similar to that of C-137's Rick, does have minor differences in history and character. The Rick of Dimension C-132 does not believe that Time Travel is a realistic possibility and that it is silly, as seen in Rick and Morty Issue 1. The C-137 Rick, meanwhile, has experience with time travel and does not show shock to the arrival of time-traveling beings in "A Rickle in Time."
This Rick also is much less wary of his Morty becoming cocky than that of C-137. When investing in the stock market, he caused his Morty to become extremely cocky to the point where Rick was fired by Morty (Rick and Morty Issue 1) He also had no problem taking his grandson to a dimension where he was an idiot and Morty was a cocky genius, (Rick and Morty: Adventure to an Alternate Universe!) while his C-137 counterpart refuses to explain such a circumstance to his Morty Smith. ("Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind")
Like his C-137 counterpart, this Rick is highly protective of his Morty and sees him as more than just a shield. On one occasion, he saved Morty's life before his own, throwing him into a portal that only had enough energy for one person. (Rick and Morty Issue 2) Though this did not stop him from injecting Morty with several diseases.
