K-9


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Powers and Abilities

Well, he’s got this dog whistle, see, and any dog that hears it will have to, like, follow him.


History

He appeared in “Batman in ’The K-9 Caper !‘”, an ad which ran in DC Comics Presents #43, and other issues as well, I’m sure. Trouble begins at the Gotham City Dog Show. All the dogs are running wild. K-9 plans to ransom back all these precious pooches.

Batman arrives and realizes that “the show will be a dog-gone disaster unless I can stop K-9…” The only way that he can think to stop K-9 is to give him some Twinkies. “Rorwwff !” K-9 replies. He stops, removes his hood, and begins to eat the Twinkies as Batman takes away the whistle and leads K-9 to a waiting police car.

Commisioner Gordon comments, “Great work, Batman ! You saved the show !” Batman replies, “Just don’t ask me to run for dog-catcher, commissioner !”


Description

He wears an orange dog costume that looks home-made. I mean, it’s really pretty silly. It’s a loose-fitting orange bodysuit with “paws”. The head is a separate piece, which can be removed.

Underneath the dog mask, K-9 has short dark hair.


Personality

He’s a crook. He steals stuff. What more do you need to know ?
