First Appearance: Gun Runner#3 (December, 1993)
Powers/Abilities: A green creature with four arms, Blitz had sharp claws and teeth, and spikes extending from each of his arms and legs, as well as from his head.
He likely had some degree of superhuman speed and/or strength, durability, etc.
Forever on the verge of frenzy, Blitz was described as the living storm of blades.
He was apparently an experienced starship navigator.
He, at least, on occasion, spoke with "z's" instead
of "s's": "Yezz, Warcrime."
(Gun Runner#3 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Blitz joined the Cynodd's elite warrior group known as the Zoo.
His battle frenzy was reportedly infamous across space.
Runner#3) - Three
kilometers beneath Las Vegas, Nevada, Cynodd leader Shakata had the Zoo
Blitz stood, twitching with nervous energy barely held in check, as Shakata sent them to hunt down the last of the Vassyran Enhanced.(Gun Runner#3) - Tracking Gun Runner to the planet Nautilus, Blitz and the others silently arrived on Heavy Duty's clipper Scylax, allowing Warcrime to surprise Gun Runner (along with his human friend Gail Patric), Heavy Duty, and Smith.
(Gun Runner#4) - Gun Runner fired on
Blitz and Payload, but when Payload later grabbed Gun Runner and lifted him high
into the air, Warcrime instructed Blitz to extinguished his life.
Blitz leapt at Gun Runner, Heavy Duty blasted
him out of the air with a bolt of laser fire that instead sent him
crashing into Warcrime.
(Gun Runner#4 - BTS) - Heavy Duty set the Scylax's power cells to explode, after which the Enhanced departed aboard the Warbird.
(Gun Runner#4 (fb) - BTS) - The Zoo escaped the Scylax's destruction and departed Nautilus as well.
(Gun Runner#4) - Aboard the Cynodd assault ship, Warcrime cursed the rest of the Zoo as amateurs for having been taken down by three foes.
After Laz-Fire noted
that she had a firm fix on the Enhanced space-fold traces and was
setting an interception course, Warcrime had Blitz lay the course
as he vowed that they would yet destroy the Enhanced.
(Gun Runner#5 - BTS) - After Shakata
activated a Synergyst within Earth, initiating Syntropy, the
Enhanced returned to Earth to oppose this.
The Zoo detected their arrival and followed them there.
(Gun Runner#5) - With Syntropy threatening to engulf Earth within hours, the Zoo located the Enhanced with the syntropic region that was normally Las Vegas, Nevada, and Warcrime instructed the others to stand ready for some pay back.
Gun Runner#6) - As the Zoo engaged the Enhanced, Blitz was struck by Lure's empathic falcon drone, Gyre.
After the Zoo pursued the Enhanced into the Syntropic shell, Blitz targeted Smith, who formed a pulsarmite weapon and shoved it through Blitz's chest, apparently killing him.
Comments: Created by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning, Anthony Williams, and Colin Fawcett.
Blitz was the most non-humanoid of the Zoo, and it's unrevealed whether he was a mutant, mutate, genetic creation, non-Cynodd recruit, or what.
Blitz has a few other good images in the Zoo profile.
Blitz originally had a sub-profile under the Zoo profile back in 02/17/2019.
