Real Name: Tung Rapongan
Search for 'Jawbreaker' on Amazon
Jawbreaker's strength and muscular density have been enhanced to superhuman levels, able to go toe-to-toe with the powerful Wonder Man. However, it is suggested that this process was only partially successful, requiring a brace of body armor to support his disproportioned body. His jaw, in particular, seems vulnerable without its brace.
Jawbreaker was mutated by Doctor Demonicus, where he gained superhuman strength and durability that needed an armored exoskeleton to maximize. He was first sent to retrieve a fragment of the Lifestone for Doctor Demonicus and when he returned to America, he met with resistance from another Pacific Overlord, Taifu. Jawbreaker was knocked down by Taifu, who was himself knocked out by Kuroko, yet another Pacific Overlord. Jawbreaker then joined Kuroko in returning to Doctor Demonicus's Los Angeles base. He later joined Demonicus when he raised the island of Demonica from the Pacific Ocean, where he was placed under Demonicus's complete control using a small mechanical device that was placed on his forehead. He remained loyal to Demonicus up until Demonica began to break apart due to earthquakes. During the quakes, Jawbreaker's implant was destroyed and he became disoriented. He asked Kuroko what the other Overlords should do just as a cave-in crushed them all, Jawbreaker included.
