Centurius (Marvel)
Real Name: Dr. Noah Black
Search for 'Centurius (Marvel)' on Amazon

Centurius is an extraordinary genius, with exceptionally advanced knowledge of genetic engineering and other areas of science and technology.

His physical form--transformed into a superior being--has athletic physical abilities, and he is reasonably experienced in hand-to-hand combat (see comments). He ages at an extremely slow rate.

He wears body armor of unknown composition and undefined capacity. He has used "stun-discs" and ray guns that fired unknown energies. He also has possessed and utilized numerous means of transportation, including advanced aircraft and spacecraft, monorail, teleportation, and a thermalic supression beam (for transporting objects from Earth to his orbiting ARC). He has used hologram projectors, T-Viewers (for observing events occurring elsewhere on Valhalla), an orbiting space ARC equipped to sustain numerous life forms for a century, etc. Valhalla contained a massive fortress loaded with advanced technology and myriad life forms.

Doctor Noah Black was an African American geneticist who won a Nobel Prize in the 1930s. Sometime after winning the Prize, he went mad and retreated to a remote island to conduct genetic experiments. He was successful in evolving numerous monstrous creatures. By chance, secret agents Nick Fury and Jimmy Woo discovered the island when they were forced to crash land their aircraft there. The pair initially attempted to convince Centurius to return to civilization with them, but when the geneticist's plot for genocide was revealed, Fury and his companion attacked. In a ploy to defeat the agents, Centurius attempted to transform himself into a "superior being" using a device called the Evolutionizer, but instead of evolving he was turned into a handful of protoplasmic slime.[1]

Much later, Centurius somehow regained human form. As a member of the group known as The Conspiracy, He became involved in a plot to gain untold power by gathering and reuniting the lost fragments of the Bloodgem, a mystic jewel from another dimension. However, The Conspiracy's efforts ultimately failed, resulting in the deaths of the entire group.[2]

Much later still, Centurius was found to somehow not be dead after all but a prisoner at the Raft, a prison for super powered criminals, from which he able to escape with numerous other inmates. He currently remains at large.
