Powers and Abilities

Having absorbed the knowledge of 16 generations of Accomplished Perfect Physicians, Yao Fei’s mind is a vast depository of medical knowledge.

He also possesses secret knowledge of how to produce sounds which can cause a variety of effects. He can:

  • Lift himself and others telekinetically.
  • Shatter objects.
  • Control earthquakes.
  • Produce a protective aura around himself.
  • Cut objects in half without touching them.

His abilities also allow him to scan a person to check their health, curing their ills (even mending broken bones or destroying tumours) in an instant.


History

(A general history of the Great Ten can be found in the team’s own entry.)

Born to a poor family in Anhui province, Yao Fei’s dreams of becoming a doctor were unattainable. As a result, he joined the People’s Liberation Army. His hope was to end up assigned to an army hospital in Shanghai. Instead he was sent to suppress uprisings in Tibet.

With an unarmed monk pierced by his bayonet in the midst of the fight, Yao Fei froze. He then ran when his officer shot him for not joining in the slaughter. Stumbling wounded through the streets of Gyangzê, he was taken in by a doctor. The physician considered that he had to treat him, even though he revealed his son had been the monk Fei had killed.

The hero discovered

His life saved, the doctor revealed his son was to have inherited the role of the 17th Accomplished Perfect Physician that day. Believing fate had chosen Yao Fei to take his place, no matter how much he believed Fei undeserving of the role, the doctor threw Fei through a portal in the floor.

Thus, Fei fell into another dimension. There, he was invested with the station, and with the memories of the previous Physicians.

The Physician spent the next decade opposing the oppressive regime China enforced on Tibet. He frequently came into conflict with the August Captain in Iron, such as when he travelled to Beijing to try helping fight a bird-flu outbreak.

Accomplished Perfect Physician escapes the August General in Iron

Seeing China changing, when he was offered a role on the country’s new team of super-functionaries, the Great Ten, he accepted. Fei believed he could make more of a difference there. He established an uneasy peace with the August Captain (now General) in Iron, but there remains a friction between the pair.

Later on the Great Ten reservist, Yeti, travelled to remote Nanda Parbat. There he discarded the charm which held his rage in check, and went on a rampage through the area. The Accomplished Perfect Physician followed to try and stop him. Saving Ralph Dibny from the rampaging beast, the Physician convinced him to help. Together, they managed to subdue the Yeti.

Return of the Gods

Not wanting to be involved in the suppression of a peaceful protest in Lhasa, Yao Fei saw it as the Party testing his loyalty. He did his best to curb the excesses of his more militant team mates.

When the Celestial Archer appeared to flee the battle, the Physician saw Ghost Fox Killer sending her Jade Lion to run him down. Following, he destroyed the Lion before it could attack, and tried to calm the Archer. This increased the enmity Green Fox Killer has for him.


Personality

Calm and composed, the Physician often acts as diplomat for the group. He tempers the harder edges of some of the more aggressive members, such as the August General in Iron, who retains a dislike for the Physician from their earlier days.

He is a patriot, and would give his life to defend China and her people. Nevertheless, he disagrees with many of the approaches the Party have taken to ruling. Still, Fei believes that, for the moment, he can achieve more from within the system.


Quotes

Accomplished Perfect Physician: “I’m Yao Fei : also known as Accomplished Perfect Physician, a super-functionary of the Great Ten of the Chinese People’s Republic.”
Ralph Dibny: “Chinese superheroes, huh ? I guess it had to happen.”
Accomplished Perfect Physician: “Heroes ? No. Servants of the people. As I say, functionaries.”

“I was taught how to use certain sounds to heal, and sometimes destroy. With a single hum I can shatter solid objects or knit flesh, make an earthquake happen by growling, and kill cancers with a tongue click.”

“Don’t make me whistle you into another dimension.”

August General in Iron: “I told the Premier it was a bad idea to recruit you. No matter how well we treat you, no matter you privilege, you will always be the petty outlaw I fought so many times.”
Accomplished Perfect Physician: “And you’ll always be their errand boy.”

“It wasn’t a guess. It was a diagnosis.”

“Sorry to interrupt, gentlemen. We were just going to blast our way in, but this is such a nice place I thought I’d let you surrender.”
