Powers/Abilities: Dog is a burly mutant with peak human strength from a super-dense muscular frame. He has an incredibly fast healing factor that further accelerates to counter a repeat injury. His head houses his main brain and he has secondary combat-focused brain in his chest. He generates acidic and poisonous green spittle that froths freely and which he uses as a weapon by short-range spitting at a victim; its toxicity in the bloodstream is deadly. Animalistic in nature, almost rabid, Dog is an experienced savage brawler and has little self-control until he has achieved his lethal objective. He also uses his fanged mouth to bite into victims and kills mercilessly, even eagerly. He has four digits, each with extended claw-like nails, on each hand, and has a light covering of short fur-like hair over almost all his body. Dog's feral nature leaves him isolated.

History:

(UltraForce II#7 (fb) - BTS) - In the 1920s, a pregnant woman was hit by a Jumpstart Effect, which triggered super-powers. This "ultra" gene was passed on via her newborn son and in turn his son, who would become the feral assassin Dog.

   At one point, Dog was captured and interrogated by covert organization Aladdin, whereupon his ultra heritage was discovered.

(UltraForce II#5) - Wanting to cover their tracks in securing a likely presidential candidate to manipulate, the Metabio organization sought out established wetwork assassin Dog living homeless in Chicago and hired him to kill targets for a paltry sum.

(UltraForce II#6) - The candidate, Senator Robert Shine, was killed by a hidden assassin (likely Veil). Metabio hired two ultras, Helen Volcano and Whistler, to destroy Shine's corpse, then had those ultras targeted for assassination. Dog took on Volcano, killing her young son first, before biting her throat. Soon after, Shine's security agent Monaghan (secretly having an affair with Shine's wife) was similarly killed by Dog. UltraForce went to investigate Monaghan's residence and encountered Dog, who attacked them savagely.

(UltraForce II#7) - The battle raged on and Dog's incredible healing factor countered every attack while he brutalized the heroes. Although Black Knight shouted for non-lethal force, several UltraForce members saw that only death could stop Dog. Wreckage fired his guns point-blank at Dog's head followed by Lament psychically stopping the quick regeneration of his main brain. Topaz plunged her charged staff into Dog's secondary brain in his chest. Wreckage then vibrated that brain to destroy it as well, thereby killing Dog. Ghoul used his powers to interrogate the corpse. The later fallout saw Black Knight expel Wreckage, Topaz, Lament and Ghoul for their murderous techniques.
