Thor's Day Hero: Tai Lung

Tai Lung is one of those bad guys who is cooler than good guys. It took all of the Furious Five to try and stop him, and all they could was contain him. Sure the Dragon Warrior took him out, but that wasn't the end of it. I like to think that Tai Lung is one a tragically misunderstood character and if he could just find that inner peace, he'd be a great ally.

I like to think after the roll of Kung Fu Panda's credits that Tai Lung wandered the countryside trying to figure out where it all went wrong and regain his honor in his own way. A sort of lone wolf Ronin, avenging weak villagers and the like. Maybe he joins the ranks of Thor's Day Heroes on potential alone? Well, that and his hardcore kung fu skills.


  1. That would make for great story. I like those sorts of hero's journies

    1. I'd hate to saddle him with a sidekick or a child, but it could be a classic Lone Wolf and Cub re-imagining. Through protecting/nurturing for this dependent he finds a little of his own humanity.
