Powers and Abilities

The Bamboo monkey is one of the masters of the Brotherhood of the Monkey Fist, a martial arts cult. As the master of the bamboo style (an acrobatic, external kung fu) he proved able to out-fu Nightwing, but was promptly defeated by Green Arrow II.


History

The Brotherhood of the Monkey Fist is a cult with a fanatical devotion to the improvement of martial arts and their own martial skills ; they do not hesitate to use criminal means and deadly force to fund and advance themselves, and have clashed in the past with various martial arts masters in the DCU.

The Bamboo Monkey tracked down and challenged Green Arrow II – who had previously defeated the champion of the Brotherhood, the Silver Monkey. Despite his considerable skill, the Bamboo Monkey quickly lost.

See illustration.


Personality

Hard to say – he appeared for three pages. Lots of overconfident intimidation and grandiose declarations about honour and purity and yadda yadda.


Quotes

“Step aside – it is only the one called Green Arrow I seek. With his death the Bamboo Monkey will achieve purity of the spirit.”
