Powers/Abilities: Pagan definately must have some superhuman strength (Class 100) and durability. He has been shown to lift a car and withstand hex blasts from Scarlet Witch, punches from the Beast, a solidified fist in the heart from Vision, and punches from energy-based Wonder Man. He appears to draw power from a seemingly limitless source, although this has not been identified.

History: Pagan is a creature who revels in destruction.

(Avengers III#50 (fb) ) -He was once one of three brothers, who were born and grew up in the Naga Hills in India. While he demonstrated exceptional intelligence as a youth, this did not save him from a sickness that swept through their village and killed both he and one of his brothers. Somehow, however, the third brother (Jonathon Tremont) managed to absorb both of his dying life forces into himself.
Years later, Tremont obtained one of three energy triangles which were created by the Universe as antibodies against the Trion shard of evil. Tremont used the power he gained from the triangle to resurrect his two brothers, who became Lord Templar and Pagan. The three brothers worked to gain the energy of the other two energy triangles, primarily throught the creation of the Triune Understanding (see Tremont, below).

(Avengers III#14) - Pagan is first seen causing a ruckus in New York by destroying nearly everything he sees. He escapes the Avengers by burrowing into the ground at an incredible speed.

(Avengers III#15) - While the team is speaking with Triathlon, Pagan burst from the ground and battles the Avengers yet again until Lord Templar shows up and tosses him into outer space.

(Avengers III#36-37) - Pagan and Lord Templar bust into the house of Mrs. Chandler, the widowed wife of 3D Man and battle the Avengers. It is revealed that Pagan is now working for Lord Templar. Pagan is knocked out by Photon and Jack of Hearts, and Templar is defeated by Triathlon, prompting the duo to vanish from the battle.

(Avengers III#50) - Aboard the Trion energy shard, Tremont released Lord Templar and Pagan to help battle the shard's defenders. Ultimately, however, Tremont drained both of their life forces back into himself in an effort to destroy the shard, and steal the power of all three triangles for himself. Tremont's energy was subsequently siphoned by Triathalon...and the fate of Lord Templar is unknown.

(Age Of Heroes#3 - BTS) - Through unrevealed means, Pagan managed to seperate himself from his two brothers and returned to Earth. Arriving in Paris, he soon caused considerable trouble.

(Age Of Heroes#3) - Pagan's presence in Paris was picked up by Adam, the Blue Marvel who raced to the city of lights to oppose him. In the end, Adam managed to knock the villain out.

Comments: Created by Kurt Busiek and George Perez.

The return of Pagan might also indicate Jonathon Tremont and Lord Templar are back in action.
