Hero Datafile: The Living Mummy

Wrapping up (oops, bad choice of words) our salute to Marvel’s monsters is N’Kantu, the Living Mummy! First appearing in Supernatural Thrillers in the ’70s, he’s popped up since in Daredevil, the Legion of Monsters miniseries, and even Civil War. He’s gotten new un-life recently in Marvel’s animated series as one of the Howling Commandos, but this datafile I’ve put together focuses on the comics N’Kantu, a warrior forced into servitude and, ultimately, eternal (and unwanted) life 3,000 years ago. He’s a noble hero who’s much more interesting than the walking, moaning, ancient gauze pad he appears to be. Check him out.

Coming on Milestone Monday: Legion of Monsters!

    Awesome! Except that everyone who knows me knows I could never play a character who “speaks only when necessary”.

      Thanks! He was fun to write. Since poor N’Kantu doesn’t have any saliva in his mouth, when he does speak, he MEANS it!

    Good stuff!!! Wish I’d had this around Halloween though, I ran a themed game for my group. Went the more comical route, was still fun though.

      That made my day, thanks. I’ve always loved the monstrous/supernatural characters from the ’70s, so when I started putting together datafiles for this blog, my first choices were obvious. 😉
