Zeitgeist of the Special Executive (Marvel Comics UK)


(Special Executive)


This is the Special Executive member, from Marvel Comics UK.

For the context and history, you should first read our Wardog (Special Executive) character notes.

Powers and Abilities

Zeitgeist exists a split second out of synch with the rest of the universe.

As a result he isn’t really “here” except in the most abstract sense. Zeitgeist can thus pick and choose which parts of our reality to interact with – allowing him to walk through walls while simultaneously hitting people.

He is invisible to all artificial sensors while in this state.



Tall and skinny, he appears to be wearing an all over black suit with just his face visible. Simple but effective.


The stealthy member of the Special Executive, Zeitgeist is one of the most efficient members of the group.

He has no fear of risking his life… as long as there’s money involved. Otherwise he wants no part of it.

However, he cares about his teammates more than his principles, and has a strong friendship with Wardog.


“Wardog, you keep saying ‘we’. I’ve told you already, if there’s no money in this then I’m not involved.”

DC Universe History

As they have never interacted with mainstream Marvel, they fit in well with any stories featuring time travel, dimension travel and just plain weirdness.
