Savage Dragon
Real Name: Kurr
Search for 'Savage Dragon' on Amazon


Powers:
The Dragon has vast superhuman strength. His legs are strong enough to enable him to leap a maximum height of 460 feet straight up in the air, and a maximum distance of 945 feet. He is capable of lifting (pressing) approximately 34 tons. He is very nearly impervious to flame. His skin acts like a bullet proof vest; a bullet isn't capable of penetrating it but a sharp knife thrust by a superhuman arm can. Dragon also has an accelerated immune system that can allows his body to regrow any limbs or organs he may happen to lose, which happens often.

Bio:
Back in June, 1992, a strange humanoid being is discovered naked in a burning lot within the city of Chicago, Illinois. This man had no memory of his past life, yet still recalls a lot of trivia. Lieutenant Frank Darling of the Chicago Police Department interviewed the patient and was taken by him, offering his friendship to the superhuman. A nurse at Hillman Hospital named Ann Stevens dubbed the man "Dragon" due to his green skin, large fin on his head and his prominent fangs.

Frank saw to it that Dragon got a job working at his cousin´s harbor warehouse. When the city´s only protectors, Mighty Man and SuperPatriot, were taken taken out by criminals, Darling set out to recruit his new friend for the police force, but his offer was rejected by the Dragon.

Two supervillains known as SkullFace and Hardware were sent by the Vicious Circle to extort money from the helpless Fred Darling. Refusing to stand by and watch this act occur, Dragon leapt into action and easily defeated both freaks with minimum fuss. Previously set explosives then detonated as the criminals were taken away by the authorities, killing poor Fred. Homeless and unemployed, Dragon decided to reconsider the offer to join the police force and was rushed through the police academy and put on the streets in just over a year.

Dragon soon stepped into the role of the city´s premiere hero and pitted himself against the Vicious Circle and their ruthless leader, OverLord. It took a couple years before Dragon finally managed to eliminate his arch-nemesis. The death of the criminal resulted in a gang war with hundreds of freaks vying for the top spot. Eventually the role was assumed by the charismatic CyberFace, who offered to run the organization with the cooperation of his fellow freaks, rather than rule through fear as his predecessor.

With CyberFace in charge, less open battles occured with the Vicious Circle. This status was enjoyed by the city´s populace but ended when Dragon took out CyberFace following the Martian invasion. He was fired from the police force and was left without a career.

A government representative called Stephenson approached the down and out Dragon and offered the role of leadership of a brand new superteam, built to replace Youngblood. He accepted the position and formed the Special Operations Strikeforce which he led until he was temporarily destroyed by Abner Cadaver. Upon his return, Dragon refused to reclaim his former position and opened up the Chicago branch of the SOS which he led, accompanied by his new love, Smasher.

Smasher was supposedly killed on the couple´s wedding day, causing Dragon to retire from full-active status, becoming instead a part-time hero. Years later, Dragon killed the infant supervillain named Damien DarkLord. This timestream altering event, killing Damien before he could grow older and travel back through time, somehow causes the Image Universe´s Dragon´s mind to transfer into his counterpart of the Savage New World.

With no memories of his alternate self´s past life, Dragon has set out to uncover the details behind the events that have destroyed this parallel world, and to discover the background of the man whose body he now resides within.
