Powers and Abilities
Well, he’s got this dog whistle, see. And any dog that hears it will have to, like, follow him.
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 !”
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.
He’s a crook. He steals stuff. What more do you need to know ?
