History: Ron Dorgan was a full contact kung-fu champion who killed a man in the ring. After this happened he went underground, resurfacing in Hong Kong a few years later to challenge local masters to bare-knuckle contests. Dorgan always won, having at some point become the disciple of Hop Li Sung and mastered the art of negative kung. This meant that he was able to imbue his strikes with a deadly energy that could kill those inflicted several days later. He used this on the Badger, who travelled to Hop Li Sung's stronghold in the South China Sea.
Cured of the death touch, the Badger was forced to again face Dorgan in combat, as Sung wanted to use the superhero as a training aid for his disciple prior to Dorgan entering a mystic tournament. Unfortunately for both of the villains, even in his weakened state the Badger was more than a match for Dorgan, slaying him during the fight.
