Tracking: Bengal has an unusually well defined sense of smell and can track people by scent.
Duc No Tranh was a boy growing up in a Vietnamese village during the Vietnam War. During the war, American soldiers, including Red Wolf, Willie Lincoln, and the future Reverend Michael Janes, massacred his village and parents. The boy tried to climb aboard the Americans' helicopter, but was kicked off by Private Janes, despite the pleas of other soldiers on board.
Years later, the boy became the costumed Bengal and travelled to America for revenge on the soldiers involved in the destruction of his village.
