Powers/Abilities: Knight Koala has an appearance resembling that of a bear, complete with enhanced strength and razor-sharp claws. He is also capable of flying.
He is also trained in the ninjitsu martial art and
carries several weapons in battle including a sword, nunchaku, sais,
sticks of dynamite, throwing stars and grenades.
History: (Spider-Man Magazine I#9) - Trained
as a ninja, the mutant Knight Koala used his enhanced strength and
flying ability to battle criminals such as Batperio, Leader Crab and
the Crab Clan.
Comments: Created by Tinsley Wing.
Knight Koala was a product of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's "Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain" section that ran through most earlier issues of the Magazine. In Knight Koala's case, he was created by then-10-year-old Tinsley Wing of Knoxville, Tennessee. As a fringe character, Knight Koala is not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there is also no evidence to say he doesn't exist there either...
Knight Koala's height & weight were impossible to approximate as he was never seen next to any character whose height & weight were officially determined.
Given the orange bandana, status as a ninja and an enemy clan, methinks Knight Koala was influenced by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...
I like the idea of Knight Koala being a mutant. I'm
aware there's probably more than enough mutants around but Knight Koala
has a very distinctive appearance so it would be cool if he showed up
somewhere in a crowd scene, especially with all of the past mutants
showing up as of late in House of X/Powers of X.
