Event Timeline


A mysterious black costumed armored figure who defeated the Crimson Cougar and then vanished from public sight.


The Dark Centurion, was a concoction of Mitch Goodman(The Crimson Cougar), his actor friend Eric and Martha Sullivan, to discredit the heroic achievements that Mitch had completed in the public's eye. After Mitch was paid a wake up call visit by The Unholy Alliance, the trio came up with the plan, that Eric acting as the villain, with Martha providing the SFX with her telekinetic abilities, would stage a battle between the Dark Centurion and Mitch. The plan worked to perfection as Mitch cowered in front of an audience and cameras, as the Dark Centurion pounded him easily and flew off never to be seen by the public again.


The Dark Centurion appears to have super-strength easily battering down a brick wall and overpowering a street level hero. He also appeared to have boots that generated the ability to fly.
