Dragon-Lord is a skilled swordsman and hand-to-hand combatant.
Senses: The Dragon-Lord possesses superhuman senses which compensate for his total blindness. He wears sunglasses at all times to protect his eyes.
Weaponry Dragon-Lord also wields a World War II-vintage samurai sword, and has access to a vast stockpile of hydrogen-based weaponry.
The man who would become the Dragon-Lord was an apprentice to Japanese scientists in a hydrogen complex researching atomic weaponry for Imperial Japan. After the Japanese surrendered, the apprentice was accidentally shut inside of the facility, and forgotten. The apprentice kept himself alive in the dark, feeding on the base's rations. His eyes adjusted to the dark, and he began to study the technical manuals left behind. Soon, he began to renovate the machinery as he understood its purposes. He constantly searched for a way to escape the base, and finally discovered an air shaft that led to the surface. After years in the dark, the sudden light of the sun struck him blind. Local natives rushed him to a doctor for treatment, but he was blinded for life.
However, the man discovered he had a mutant ability which somehow compensated for his lack of sight. The man lived among the locals, and became respected for his intelligence. Eventually he became their high priest, and sent his subjects out to bring him materials to outfit an underground complex overtop of the hydrogen complex. He intended to use his resources to conquer the Earth.
