This one was a request from Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen, so how could I refuse? The Dragon would be another character that would fit in on a Ben Grimm poker night. I wonder if Larsen knew that his creation would endure for so long when he started drawing pictures of The Dragon as a young kid? I had a whole stable of heroes myself: Alastor the Avenger, Sonic Man, The Gimmick, Clay, and Machine Man (I was crushed when I found out there was already a character with that name!) Alas, they never made it past my grade school years, so I have to hand it to Larsen for keeping his childhood character alive and thriving.
