Golden Age Origin

The Black Dragon and his Deaglos (bird-men) are foes of Captain Battle. One of his Deaglos, was an orphan named Nathan Hale, who when cured became Captain Battle's sidekick. He is "the last word in evil sorcery, bewitches all prisoners into these giant Deaglos. In his feudal castle in Asiatic mountains, this incarnation of evil rules as an absolute tyrant. He chafes at any form of freedom for others, hence his sworn enmity against all democracies. The Asian powers are but a front for him and having failed miserably to even dent our cousin's navy, he is taking a hand by sending a division of Deaglos. Black Dragon having used the spirit of an extinct bird, the dodo, for these transformations, the Deaglos are proof against physical death, as we know it. They laugh at the sailors' efforts to shoot them. Deaglos retain their human speech and thought but are completely dominated by him." Deaglos are giants about 20 feet tall with yellow bird like faces, bulging red eyes and green beaks but pointed ears and a few of the nastier ones have red crest-fins. They have blue-gray wings and feathers about the shoulders and chest but human torsos otherwise. The Black Dragon himself is a very normal looking man in red robe and skull cap. Captain Battle discovers the Deaglos can be killed simply by radio beams, but the Black Dragon himself escapes.
