History

The Black Mesa complex is a private high-tech research installation (with strong ties to the U.S. government) located somewhere in the American Southwest. An accident in the Anomalous Materials Lab caused a dimensional breach into the world known as Xen.

Several Ichthyosaurs fell though the breach. Many died, but those that could make it to water now regard the scientists and guards of the complex as tasty snacks.


Description

A large fish-creature with huge jaws and forearms terminated with 6-inch claws.


Personality

Swim. Eat. Swim.


DC Universe History

This would be a moderate-level threat to the Earth, probably a good challenge for Young Justice or a similarly-powered team. It might be a good solo challenge for Batman.
