Black Dragon (Marvel) (01 - Chiantang)
Real Name: Chiantang
Search for 'Black Dragon (Marvel) (01 - Chiantang)' on Amazon

Chiantang, in his natural form, is an immense dragon, 100' long. He possesses Class 100 strength and durability, and though he can be injured, he can heal from virtually any injury; it has been claimed that the sword Dragonslayer can kill him, though he has disputed this claim. He did admit that only way to kill a dragon was to decapitate it. However, even when beheaded (and his head incinerated), he was able to be resurrected via a certain ceremony. He can also take different dragon forms, demonstrating an un-winged purple form, and a winged green form, radically different in appearance. In at least the green form, he could fly and breathe fire.

He can change into human form at will, though even in that form, he has at least Class 25 strength, enhanced durability and speed, and is a master of certain martial arts. He has a number of magical powers, only a few of which have been glimpsed. He can mimic the form of any human or humanoid (and possible non-humanoids as well), and he can also switch his mind with another being. His powers are sufficient that he was able to transform his body into a duplicate of the demon Mephisto, which fooled even Dr. Strange until he performed a deep magical exploration. He even could leave superhuman powers in his body while swapping minds with another, such as when Ross could fly and demonstrate superhuman strength, durability, and healing powers when appearing as Mephisto in Chiantang's body.

Though apparently male, he can lay eggs which will hatch into dragons within a few weeks.

None entered.
