"The Poet, my friend, is always right... that is the secret of my might!"
A recurring foe of Nitro, the Poet was a criminal who only spoke in rhyme.

Initially just a henchman for crime boss "Curly" Edwards, the Poet would eventually become the boss of his own gang where he would send out coded instructions (through a book of poems he wrote) that resulted in a massive crime wave.

However, the Poet was not a capable fighter and would always ended up beaten by his arch-enemy with a single punch.

Powers and Abilities

A brilliant criminal mind.
