File Name: Unknown
Birthplace: Unknown
Primary Specialty: Master of Disguise
Motto: "My personality changes as often as my looks...and they're both BAD!"

Zartan can alter his skin color at will to blend in with his environment. He is a master of make-up and disguise, a ventriloquist, a linguist (he speaks over twenty languages and dialects), an acrobatic-contortionist and a practitioner of numerous mystical martial arts. Little is known about his background, but captured Cobra documents revealed reports listing him to be "as lethal as a two-headed rattler disguised as a garter snake." He changes appearances and personalities so often that even he can't keep track of them!

Body Construction

Zartan's body was original - no parts were taken from other figures.
