Doctor Dorcas (Marvel)
Real Name: Lemuel Dorcas
Search for 'Doctor Dorcas (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
Dr. Dorcas had no known superhuman powers, but had a great scientific knowledge. He employed many devices, ranging from the Morphotron to laser guns and nuclear bombs.

Bio:
Doctor Lemuel Dorcas was a marine biologist, genetic engineer, inventor, and would-be conqueror. Dorcas was responsible for transforming injured Olympic swimmer Todd Arliss into the superhuman Tiger Shark, and planned to use Tiger Shark as a pawn in his schemes of world conquest.

Dorcas formed an alliance with the Atlantean warlord Krang. Krang provided his follower Orka as a test subject, and Dorcas endowed Orka with the powers of a killer whale. Krang and Dorcas used Orka and a fleet of killer whales to attack Atlantis, but were thwarted by Namor and interference by Tiger Shark.

Dorcas and Krang later formed a secret alliance with Byrrah in a plot to keep Namor from being crowned prince of Atlantis, and allow Byrrah to take the crown. Namor captured Dorcas and Krang, who revealed Byrrah’s involvement in the plot, thus ruining his bid for power.

Attuma, Dorcas, and Tiger Shark captured Hydro-Base and took Namor prisoner there. Namor regained his freedom with the helpd of the Hydro-Men, and attacked the conspirators, throwing Tiger Shark into one of Attuma’s war machines. As Dorcas was able to fire a lethal blast from his hand weapon at Namor, the machine toppled on top of Dorcas and crushed him to death.
