Powers and Abilities

Possessing vast psychic powers, Hatch-22 can move large amounts of matter with his mind ; can project insanely powerful beams of intense heat ; and can project psychic images as a three dimensional illusion.

He has an undetectable third eye in the back of his head, from which he can emit a beam of deadly microns which shatter the atomic cohesion of a target, disintegrating them. He is also protected from extremes of heat.


By the year six million, in the Sixth Era of Man, the evolved humans on the devastated Earth live underground in vast hatches, and have evolved powerful psychic abilities, enabling a single member to see off planet-sized threats.

Born into Hatch-22, the name assumed by all members of that hatch, one individual was drawn into the past by the powers of King Solomon’s Frog, during a conflict in that time period between the Black Panther and his ally Abner Little, and the collector Princess Zanda.

Angrily demanding to be returned to his hatch, Hatch-22 lashed out with his telekinetic abilities, soon recognizing those around him as vastly inferior beings, fit only as pets. The Panther used Hatch-22’s arrogance against him, getting close by feigning subservience, and then knocking him out.

Sedating him, the now allied Zanda, Little and Black Panther took Hatch-22 to King Solomon’s Tomb, in search of the other Frog, which would allow them to send him home. Hatch-22 stirred before they could find it, but was groggy enough that he failed to do them any damage before Mister Little managed to subdue him again, giving them time to find the other Frog and return him home.

He was briefly summoned to the past again, also by the Frog, but was quickly knocked out, again by the Black Panther, and returned to his own time.


Hatch-22 is primarily interested with the safety of his hatch, and of his planet. Arrogantly superior, when transported to the past, he looked down on his ancestors, seeing them as nothing more than potential pets. He had no compunctions about killing them, interested only in returning home, but unwilling to believe these insects could possibly help him.


“What are you !? Speak — or die !!”

“Mindless creatures ! You have removed me from the hatch ! I must return to the hatch !! I belong to the Sixth era of man ! I cannot remain here !”
