Ch'od (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Ch'od (Marvel)' on Amazon

Ch'od's amphibious physiology grants him a number of superhuman attributes.

Breathing: Ch'od is fully amphibious and is capable of surviving both on land and in the water with equal ease due to the fact that he possesses lungs that allows him to breathe on land and gills that enable him to breathe under water.

Superhuman Strength: Ch'od is superhumanly strong and is capable of lifting about 20 tons.

Superhuman Speed: Despite his great size and bulk, Ch'od is capable of running and moving at speeds greater than even the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Swimming Speed: Ch'od is capable of swimming through water at much greater speeds than even the finest human athlete. He is capable of reaching a top speed of about 50 miles per hour.

Superhuman Stamina: Ch'od's musculature generates less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. He can exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue beins to impair him.

Superhuman Durability: Ch'od's scaly hide offers him a higher degree of protection from physical injury than a human being. He is capable of withstanding powerful impact forces and small caliber bullets without sustaining injury.

Known Abilities: Ch'od is an excellent swordsman, marksman, and hand to hand combatant.

Ch’od is one of the founding members of the Starjammers. Though he can be a fierce combatant, he is usually genial and friendly in social interactions (though his sheer size and lizard-like appearance can be intimidating to those unfamiliar with him or his species). Ch’od is accompanied by his small, furry pet Cr’reee.

As with the other original three Starjammers, Ch'od was once a slave, until Corsair leads a rebellion. The group ends up operating out a powerful starship., and gain the membership of Sikorsky, a powerful, insectoid doctor.

Ch'od has been with the Starjammers through all their adventures, such as combatting the alien Brood, helping Professor X gain an entirely new body and being on the run from the Shi'ar empire, when they harbored its longtime ruler, Lilandra. The Starjammers not only have the trust of the X-Men, but the Earth's other major superteam, the Avengers.

For a time he and his fellow Starjammers were imprisoned and replaced by Skrulls, who were attempting to conquer the Shi'ar empire. The X-Men help rescue him. Ch'od assists when the Hulk needs help infiltrating an alien empire that is threatening the lives of his friends.

Ch'od has recently suffered the death of his loyal friend Corsair and less tragically, Hepzibah's stranding on Earth. Several X-Men have remained with the Starjammers.

Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum.
