Villain Overview

I -- Have -- AWAKENED!
~ Fin Fang Foom

Fin Fang Foom is a supervillain in the Marvel comics. He is a giant monster who has had a lengthy career of villainy, he is one of Marvel's most recognizable villains due to his size and power and is also one of its more popular ones (if slightly obscure to non-Marvel fans).

Although resembling a dragon, Fin Fang Foom is not truly a mythological being, in fact he is one of a number of aliens that resembled dragons in appearance - this combined with his aggressive nature made Fin Fang Foom a dangerous and formidable opponent to anyone that got in his path.

He is a very powerful being, having super strength and durability, as well as shapeshifting, telepathy, and acid breath.

Fin Fang Foom is extremely resistant to injury and resistant to both extreme heat and extreme cold. Foom can survive in space unaided. Fin Fang Foom's strength is such as to allow him to easily lift over 100 tons. Foom has several offensive abilities. He possesses the ability to produce and expel an acid like green mist from his mouth. Foom can utilize telepathy to limited degrees, typically for communication. Fin Fang Foom also has shapeshifting abilities. Despite his size and nature, Fin Fang Foom is above average intellect, as well as a skilled navigator, chef, as well as versed with martial arts skills.
