Wendigo (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Wendigo (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
The Wendigo possesses a variety of superhuman physical abilities as a result of a mystical curse. The curse causes anyone that ingests the flesh of another human, while within the wilderness, to transform into the Wendigo.

The Wendigo possesses vast superhuman physical strength of an unknown limit. It is known that the Wendigo possesses sufficient strength to go toe to toe with the Incredible Hulk, while the Hulk is in an enraged state, indicating the Wendigo can lift well in excess of 100 tons.

Aside from its vast strength, the tissues of the Wendigo's body are considerably stronger than those of a human being. A Wendigo's body can resist high caliber machine gun shells without sustaining injury. If a Wendigo is injured, it can recover from the physical trauma with tremendous speed and efficiency. The dense fur covering the Wendigo's body grants it immunity to the harsh conditions of the extreme cold weather common in the areas in which the Wendigo has appeared. The Wendigo can be rendered unconscious by sufficient force, such as severe physical injury and trauma, but it can only die if its heart is removed from its body.

Despite the Wendigo's great size, it can run at speeds greater than that of an Olympic level athlete. At top speed, a Wendigo can move at roughly 50 miles per hour. The enhanced musculature of the Wendigo generates less lactic acid than the muscles of a human being, granting it superhuman levels of stamina.

The tips of the Wendigo's fingers and toes are tipped with razor sharp, retractable claws that are capable of piercing through most conventional materials, even steel, due to a combination of the sharpness of the claws and the Wendigo's massive physical strength.

Even though the Wendigo was once a human being, very little is left of that person with the exception of brief and rare instances during which the Wendigo is able to remember things about its former life. It is also relatively unintelligent and lacks the ability to speak, except its own name.

Bio:
Several people have been afflicted with the curse that brings about this condition including Paul Cartier, Georges Baptiste, Michael Fleet and Francois Lartigue. The curse is regional to the woods of Northern Canada and takes place when a person engages in cannibalism. Under the right conditions such a person becomes the Wendigo and roams the woods eating people. The Wendigo has frequently fought the Hulk, Wolverine, and Alpha Flight.
