Red Lion is a highly accomplished leader and military tactician. He is a expert hand-to-hand combatant and an excellent marksman.
Body Armour: Red Lion's suit is made out of a Promethium-mesh. Promethium is an extremely strong material and provides a high degree of protection from physical and energy attacks.
Claws: Red Lion's suit of Promethium Armour boasts retractable claws. These claws are also made out of Promethium and can therefore cut through extremely dense and tough materials.
Energy Absorption: Red Lion's promethium armour can absorb most forms of energy. This energy is then used to enhance Bland, usually by making him stronger and faster then humanly possible.
Matthew Bland is a dictatorial despot and President-for-life of the African nation of Buredunia. Committing ethnic genocide in his country, he hired Deathstroke to ensure that U.S. Congressman Hasgrove was re-elected, because Hasgrove was preventing American intervention in his corner of Africa. After getting Deathstroke to change into the Ikon Suit, Bland gained possession of Slade's old Promethium armour, and re-fashioned it into his own, adopting the identity of the Red Lion.
