History: (New Warriors IV#9 (fb), BTS) - Vigor was a member of Alphaclan, a team that was in the number twelve spot on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Most Wanted list. Eventually, they encountered the New Warriors, and either a battle ensued, or the New Warriors had only recently finished another, earlier battle (see comments). 

 

(New Warriors IV#9) - Vigor and the rest of Alphaclan faced off against the battle-weary New Warriors, cockily sure of beating the youths should it come to battle. The New Warriors distracted their foes with a giant image of Warrior Decibel, and battle commenced. 

    During the fight Ripcord struck Vigor with an electrical blast, but the tide soon turned against the Warriors; Trojan stunned Wondra with a blow to the face, and Vigor walked up behind her as she struggled onto her knees. Raising his heavy club, he reminded her that all she had needed to do was let them pass, claiming Alphaclan were not responsible for what would now happen. 

    With that, Vigor brought the club down with a rock-shattering smash, as it passed clean through Wondra as if she was a ghost, much to both parties' complete shock. Across the battlefield all the New Warriors discovered they had turned insubstantial. The voice of the newly arrived Night Thrasher announced that he called it ghost mode, holding up the remote control which had activated phasing technology built into his teammates' armors. Seizing the opportunity while Alphaclan were distracted, Decibel emitted a sonic scream that incapacitated all the villains.

 

(New Warriors IV#9, BTS) - The defeated Alphaclan were left for the authorities.

(New Warriors IV#9) - The TV news that evening reported Alphaclan's capture.

   

Comments: Created by Kevin Grevioux (writer), Paco Medina (penciler) and Juan Vlasco (inker). 

    Alphaclan are very obviously homages to Hanna-Barbera's superheroes. As none of Alphaclan were named,  I've given them some unofficial ones as placeholders to make it easier to follow their history section - I put them in quotes for the members list to show that, but didn't for the history, because it clutters stuff up too much to do it every single time.
    He's based on the Mighty Mightor, so I've named him (the vengeful / valiant / etc.) Vigor. There was no evidence of him having a pet dragon, unlike Mightor.
