Powers and Abilities

Quasimodo has enough strength to battle the Hulk hand-to-hand for a minute or two, which is no mean feat.

He knows Paris extremely well. Especially Notre Dame  and the sewers and underground.


History

Quasimodo is simply the great-great-great-grandson of the original, gifted with a far higher degree of inhuman strength. He lives in Paris as a monster and pariah.

He sometimes want to be more than just an horrible monster. On one such occasion, he attempted to get rich by stealing something belonging to Betty Ross, daughter of the famous general and friend of Doctor Bruce Banner.


Description

See illustration.

Personality

Quasimodo considers himself to be an horrible monster. As such, he lives hidden far from the populace’s eyes, just like the original. He talks to himself a lot, and talks to his pet gargoyle even more.

He’s quite bitter over his condition. Quasimodo would welcome anything allowing him not to be a monster.

He’s proud of his knowledge of Paris, and not really a villain. He may threaten but he’s unlikely to seriously hurt anyone.

Like any good monster, he’s attracted to beautiful maidens. It’s not easy, being a beautiful maiden.


Quotes

“Heeee ! ha ha ha heeeee ! Come along, Salvatore – there is much to be done !”


DC Universe History

He would make a good, early Superman villain. Or, better yet, he would have fought Power Girl while she was in Paris. She acts like the Hulk sometimes, and is fine as a beautiful maiden, so that’s a perfect cast.
