Who's Who: Dagon the Avenger

Dagon the Avenger
by Russell & Siskoid


Real Name: Tech Master Emil Wezil Yondor
Super-Power(s): none; possessed highly-technical battle suit and weapons
Planet of Origin: Earth
Relationship to Legion: Villain

Legion Log
Dagon was actually one of the employees at Brande Enterprises who was laid off when RJ Brande had his fortune appropriated by Earthgov after Earthwar, the Mordru-induced Khund invasion. Angry at being fired, Emil Yondor blamed the Legion for his predicament. Having access to the Legion headquarters' blueprints, Yondor broke into their high-security storage area and stole various weapons. Cobbling together a battle-suit and now calling himself Dagon, Yondor kidnapped the parents of several Legionnaires and demanded ransom money.

The Legionnaires were able to figure out Dagon's true identity and guessed that he was hiding in a bunker underneath the Legion's headquarters, where they confronted him and rescued their parents.

During the actual adventure he was referred as Wezil Yondor, not Emil Yondor. There was never any explanation as to why he named himself Dagon, or whether there was some reason why he chose the Fish God from The Bible as his code name.

Dagon never reappeared again, in any version of Legion continuity.

After Infinite Crisis, Dagon's original history has presumably been more or less restored.

Only Dagon the Avenger story:

Legion of Super-Heroes (v2) #263-264



The Legion faces Dagon for the first and last time;
note that he is called Wezil Yondor here

  1. ^How much of this is Cindy and how much of this is Chris?

    Leave it to Chris to ignore the full-body armored man we're actually talking about to focus in on the scantily clad Legionnaire heroine. ;-)

  2. He looks like a Marvel villain. Someone to face off against the Black Knight?
