-- The Swiss src

The Swiss is an espionage agent born in Switzerland who became an enemy to Richard Dragon. He was tasked with interrogating a man named Shiruto who killed himself to avoid torture. The Swiss tracked down and kidnapped Shiruto's niece Carolyn Woosan, who was traveling with martial artists Ben Turner and Richard Dragon. He tortured Carolyn, although she was unable to give him information.[1] The Swiss was relentlessly pursued by Richard Dragon, and he became obsessed with defeating Dragon. He set up an ambush of martial arts experts to defeat Dragon, but Dragon overcame them all.[2] Dragon tracked the Swiss to a martial arts school and beat up his bodyguards. The Swiss escaped on motorcycle, but Dragon pursued him down the highway. This lead to an accident where Carolyn was killed in the crash. Richard Dragon followed the Swiss to an empty junkyard where they finally did battle. In his anger, Dragon beat the Swiss to death.[3]

It was later revealed that the Swiss was working for a man named Guano Cravat.[4]

Weapons

  • Poison needles
  • This version of Swiss (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • The Swiss was created by Dennis O'Neil and Jim Berry as a character in their 1974 novel Dragon's Fists. O'Neil later adapted him as a DC Universe character in 1975 when he was writing the series Richard Dragon, Kung-Fu Fighter.
