Vulcanus of the New Olympians (Batman & the Outsiders enemy) (DC Comics)

Vulcanus

(New Olympians)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Vulcanus is an obscure opponent of Batman & the Outsiders. He was only seen in one 1984 story, perhaps because he breaks one of my rules (avoid characters whose name ends in -anus).

He’s conveniently generic and undetailed, *and* she’s part of a themed team (Antaeus, Argus, Diana, Nox, Proteus). So having notes for these guys sounds good to us.

  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: New Olympians.
  • Base Of Operations: Unrevealed.
  • Height: 5’8” Weight: 160 lbs.

History

The New Olympians is a group of mortal supervillains who were given their abilities by the Monitor.

They were assembled by Maxie Zeus to assault the 1984 Olympic Games in L.A., with President Reagan  in attendance. Batman intervened and challenged the New Olympians to compete with his Outsiders in a variety of contests.

Vulcanus and Proteus II challenged Metamorpho and Black Lightning to a sort of combat handball, but were defeated.

See illustration.

Unrevealed, he barely spoke during his appearance.
