LOCKJAW of 2099A.D.
Real Name: Lockjaw
Identity/Class: Extradimensional/alternate reality (Earth-928 - see comments), Inhuman or canine mutate
Group Membership: None
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Attilan, Blue Area, the Moon, but mobile across the Earth - very, very mobile
First Appearance: Marvel Year-In-Review '92#4 (December 1992)
Powers/Abilities: Lockjaw could teleport across great distances.
Height: 5' (at the shoulder) (by approximation)
Weight: 1240 lbs. (by approximation)
History: (Marvel Year-In-Review '92) - A member of the moon-faring Inhumans, Lockjaw traveled to Earth seeking a tree to relieve himself against, but in this dystopian era, not only did a tree not grow in Brooklyn, they didn't grow anywhere else. Luckily, since he could teleport, Lockjaw was able to continue his desperate, planet-spanning search for that one chance of relief.
Comments: Created by (probably) Fabian Nicieza.
He reports on the 2099 characters as ones that editor Joey Cavalieri
informed him had been rejected by editorial, which if true would mean
another, unidentified party created them, but I'm ASSuming that was just
Fabian's schtick for the humorous article rather than factual. The
artist is unidentified, but it looks like art clipped from another comic
that has been slightly modified to give it a 2099 spin. I'm thinking
Jack Kirby, but I'm no expert on recognizing artists by their style.
There's no mention whether this is the
original Lockjaw who has survived (or traveled) to 2099, or a descendant
of same. Since his Inhumans are noted as still living on the Moon, he's
not the Lockjaw of Inhumans 2099, who had left for space. Though the
article mentioning him is tongue-in-cheek, I can't see any reason why he
wouldn't fit into the original version of 2099, Earth-928, so for the
moment I'm ASSuming that's where he originates.
