Heroes of the 1980s: Panthro

You know what screams 80’s? Ninja weapons like nunchaku. You know what screams massive drug abuse? Talking cat people. But somehow if you combine the two, you have an iconic character beloved to this day! And so, we have today’s hero, Panthro!

Panthro may not know what a Samophlange is, but he does know a thing or two about kickin’ mutant butt to all corners of Third Earth utilizing not only his cat’s claw nunchaku, but also his technological marvels such as the ThunderTank. It is also rumored that he sired a son who not only assisted in the birth of hundreds of babies on Third Earth, but has an affinity for loud, obnoxious sweaters as well.
