Typhon commands a fleet of submarines. The writers of his stories really like to note how advanced his subs are. And...they really are pretty cool looking...
...and this electric sea monster thing...
...and of course, let's not forget the sea demons...
Overall, Typhon's adventures are pretty exquisitely batshit crazy. I'm starting to think that the title he appeared in, Weird Comics, should be required reading for aficionados of Golden Age strangeness. Here he is at the PDSH wiki, and here he is as he visits Dogwood City for scientific collaboration and informal meetings on saving the world:
Full name: Alexander Typhon
4 Hero Dice
Fist (melee) +4 (1D damage)
Ray gun (ranged) +4 (2D damage)
Typhon wears a ring that grants him +4 to all saving throws vs. magic.
Explorer types are always fun (as are aquatic themed heroes).ReplyDelete
Agreed, and this guy's stuff really is wild. Sometimes a good weird science fantasy story can remind me why comics are so great.Delete
Release the Kraken! (Is that the same kraken?) Probably not.ReplyDelete
It's definitely different from the Kraken I caught on my last voyage. So there appear to be multiple Krakens. I do like the idea of it being a giant millenium-old cuttlefish, though!Delete
