Powers: In the universe of Lucius Hammer…It’s established that paranormal beings of different races exhibit different powers or abilities. African American paranormals tend to have increased longevity or lifespan; uncanny endurance in terms of physical pain, emotional stress…etc etc; immunity to extreme temperatures, and extreme regenerative capabilities. Lucius Hammer possesses all these things along with the super strength (On par with Hulk, Thor and Thing), dense muscle mass, leaping ability, semi-super speed, enhanced super athleticism and heightened sensory perception.


Born from the pages of American Myth and forged in the fires of Americas  civil rights struggle! In a world where black paranormals have longer life expectancies than their Caucasian counterparts, Lucius is a man searching for his place in the world. His amazing powers have enabled him to become America’s most visible and controversial superhero. But just when Lucius thinks he’s found his calling in life, certain “powers that be” join forces in a campaign to smear his good name, changing his status to Public Enemy Number One.

During his lifetime, he has been affiliated with three major groups of paranormals…The American Guardians (a team of government sponsored Negro Paranormals initiated by President John Kennedy to legalize black superheroes and to get them to deter crime in the inner cities of America.)
He then joined The Dream Team. This was an autonomous group of elite black superheroes who band together with their own agenda during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

Later on towards the end of his dwindling superhero/movie star career, Lucius bands together with an Asian Kung-Fu star called The Iron Tiger…but their relationship is reported to be one that involves plenty of celebrity excess, illicit drug use and outrageous public behavior that led to the People v.s Lucius Hammer in 1986
