Who the creature called Lord Lion Mane really is or how he became the creature he is today remain largely unknown. What is known is that he appeared suddenly and rose quickly in power among the criminal warlords of central Africa, primarily through blood diamonds and arms deals. Taking three female warriors as brides, Lion-Mane built a palace for his family near his largest mine, guarded at all times by armed mercenaries and a pride of Tsavo lions.
- Unique Physiology: Lion-Mane is a centaur-like beast. He has a man's torso, a lion's head and lion's lower body.

- Fangs: Lion-Mane routinely eats his victims.
- Superhuman Durability: Lion-Mane's skin cannot be harmed by conventional weaponry.
