Powers and Abilities

Razorback is a HUGE man, who was born a mutant. He possesses the ability to drive or pilot any vehicle. He is a formidable hand to hand combatant, holding his own with the likes of Spider-Man.


History

Buford Hollis was a ace truck driver, and aficionado of CB (citizen’s band) radio. Hollis decided to use his talent for inventing to become a costumed crimefighter like the ones he read about in New York City. Since his home town of Texarkana was in “hog country,” Hollis decided to design his costume to make himself look like a ferocious boar and called himself Razorback.

After several semi-successful adventures in which he met Spider-Man, he was seen aiding a friend in the hijacking of NASA’s new spacecraft the Starblazer, in an attempt to find Ulysses Solomon Archer. During the shuttle-napping he picked up a reluctant passenger in the form of one She-Hulk. After successfully ending a nefarious plot by Xemnu the Titan at the stellar truck stop Star Stop, She-hulk contacted NASA and spoke on his behalf.

NASA waived criminal charges and offered Hollis a job continuing the Star Blazer’s “shakedown cruise” through space. When last seen, Razorback was piloting the Star Blazer (which he renamed the Big Pig III) further into space with his new love Taryn O’Connell.


Description

Razorback is a goliath of a man, who wears a green costume with yellow gloves, boots and utility belt. He wears, uhhh, a big pig head as headgear.


Personality

Razorback is a stereotypical trucker, who enjoys his life as a costumed hero. At first Buford appears to be a buffoon – but has proved himself to be a competent crimefighter.


DC Universe History

Razorback’s adventurous spirit can take him anywhere. Since DC is rich with space faring characters and alien races, adding Razorback into the mix is relatively simple. On earth Razorback could be found ’on the road‘ aiding heroes wherever he finds them.
