Powers and Abilities

As part cockroach, Ganpachi is extremely hard to hurt, let alone kill. He has survived a six story fall that included smashing through a two-foot thick concrete barrier, and leaving a foot deep crater in the sidewalk, without losing consciousness.

He has also survived a three foot spike penetrating his torso. And a fall down a ten-story elevator shaft that culminated in the elevator, itself, slamming down from twelve stories above.


History

A secret lab in Tōkyō, Japan, began to try combining human DNA with that of various insects and microbes. They were attempting to create microbe strains that can fight other germs, in order to counteract disease. However, one of the experiments, later known as Ganpachi, but known as P-5 at the time, ended up far more human-like than they expected.

Hiding his two extra arms, he ran off, and obtained a formal suit and opera cloak. Finding a job as a teacher for Emporer High school, he dedicated himself to destroying the gangs, and the leader of all the gangs, one Hinako Shiratori.

No, the plot didn’t particularly make sense

After a series of plots, such as revealing that the tough girl wore “Lucky Kitty” gym shorts instead of panties (a childish and humiliating revelation), and converting a segment of the gang population that resented Ms. Hinako into his “Lucky Kitty Storm Troopers”, they finally confronted each other in an epic battle.

During the fight it was revealed that the young girl gained ten times normal strength whenever she wore the shorts, the origin of Ganpachi, and the existence of a scientist who had blended himself with a spider in order to capture Ganpachi. But he was thought destroyed when he was dropped in an elevator shaft, and the elevator dropped on him by cutting the cable.

However, later, a figure matching Ganpachi’s description was spotted headed towards Tōkyō, wearing torn clothes and a tattered cloak.

Description

Immense, Ganpachi is at least 6’8”, and at least 400 lbs. He has long black hair, and grey eyes.

He wears a formal suit and an opera cape usually hiding his two extra arms.


Personality

With a presence that immediately attracts attention wherever he goes, the Ultimate Teacher is a bombastic, overly dramatic individual. He is capable of switching from intimidating to inspiring in seconds.

He takes every advantage of his size at every opportunity, and has at least a moderate wit. For example, expecting some sort of prank or trap when he first entered his classroom, he shoved the principal in first.

However, he also appears to be at least moderately mentally unstable. If a wall is in reach, he walks hugging the wall, apparently trying to resist the urge to actually cling to it. As well, he appears to have very little interest in actual teaching, but rather in controlling the school.


Quotes

(Lucky Kitty Commandos: “Tromp, tromp, tromp. SCHWING ! SCHWING !”


DC Universe History

Ganpachi, the Ultimate Teacher, could be a creation of STAR, Japan, or could even be created by just about any research organization.

He could have tangled with Impulse or any of Young Justice as an overzealous teacher, and makes a great opponent for teenage heroes of any stripe.
