Drac de Ferro (Iron Dragon)
Real Name: Unknown
Identity/Class: Human wearing high tech armour.
Affiliations: Iberia Inc; Jaume Serrat i de la Casa (protege)
Known Relatives: None known
Aliases: None known
Base of Operations: Spain
First Appearance: Iberia Inc. #1 (Four issue mini-series from Planeta's Laberinto imprint, 1996)
Powers/Abilities: The armour is composed of a liquid metal which can be made to shift its shape to change form - growing bat wings, or claws on the hands and feet, or other, more shocking configurations. It can fly at over Mach 5, and is strong enough to handle attacks from tanks and fighter planes. It is equipped with plasma beams, and can emit ultrasonic blasts. Fully computerised and able to link to computer networks, the armour can also teleport.
History: Drac de Ferro is somewhat of an enigma to his team mates. Clad in nanotech armour which can be shaped to grant new abilities as needed, the rest of Iberia Inc have never seen him unmasked. Several people in the team believe him to be Jaume Serrat i de la Casa, a Catalonian aristocrat, but the truth is far stranger than that. The shifting armour makes some think that it is itself a living being, and the gargoyle-like features often terrify enemies.
In fact Drac de Ferro is a woman from the future. She stole the armour from people who in turn stolen it from Jaume Serrat some years from now, then travelled back to the modern day. Now she is trapped in a time loop, because she knows that Jaume Serrat was the protege of another person, inheriting the armour after that hero was killed by an Italian group known as the Mascheratta. Having taken Jaume under her wing, the current Drac knows her days are numbered...
Comments: Created by Rafael Marín and Carlos Pacheco.
Drac de Ferro was seen among the gathered members of the Avengers taken from across the timelines in Marvel Comics' Avengers Forever mini-series, for which Carlos was the artist.
