Powers and Abilities

Dragonwing is a quasi-shapeshifter. He can substitute parts of his anatomy for dragonlike body parts. He can thus gives himself with :

  • Superhumanly strong limbs.
  • Wings.
  • Eyes that see in the infra-red range.
  • Robust scales.
  • A fire-breathing mouth.
  • Big clawed paws.
  • Etc.


The Rising Sons are a Madripoor street gang composed of mutants. Lacking direction, they decided that if the world around them hated and feared them it might as well be for a good reason. They thus became super-criminals, tailoring costumes and codenames for themselves.

The gang graduated to minor mercenary work. Though they have a good track record and act professional, their youth means that they aren’t major league yet. It is unclear how those amoral truants fit into Madripoor’s criminal turfs and hierarchies.

During one documented case, they worked for the criminal business man known as Mister Noy. They clashed with Paladin and Gen X, who were after an object stolen by Noy.



Spoilsport and Dragonwing the only white member of the gang. They might be runaways from a High Town White family.


Dragonwing is the leader of the Rising Sons, but does not seem to be smarter or more charismatic than the others.
