Real Name: Centipor
Identity/Class: Terrestrial animal mutate
Group membership: None
Affiliations: Dr. Demonicus (creator); Demon Troops, Batragon, Ghilaron, Lepirax
Enemies: Godzilla, SHIELD I
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Dr. Demonicus' underground volcano lair in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska (specifically the Lifestone)
Appearances: Godzilla#4 (November, 1977), 5(named)
Powers: Centipor had the form of an immense centipede, at least feet in length. It possessed superhuman strength, commensurate with its size (@ Class 50), enabling it to grip and immobilize one of Godzilla's arms. It had strong and sharp mouth-parts. It possessed superhuman durability, the extent of which is unknown, but it was vulnerable to radioactive fire.
History: Following the successful creation of Batragon, Dr. Demonicus used the Lifestone to create three other monster servants: Centipor, Ghilaron, and Lepirax. Centipor was created by mutating a centipede.
After Godzilla slew Batragon, and SHIELD assaulted his base, Dr. Demonicus released his next three creations from the energy cage containing them with the volcano lair. Centipor, along with Ghilaron, confronted Godzilla, each grabbing one of his arms. However, Godzilla disagreed with their course of action, and put a quick stop to it by blasting Centipor with a burst of radioactive flame, killing it.
Comments: Created by Doug Moench and Tom Sutton.
Clarifications: I don't know if the Lifestone used by Demonicus has any connection to the Lifestone described in Thunderbolts#46.
