Thor's Day Hero: Panthro

Panthro, ironically, was the only Thundercat who didn't actually look like a Thundercat. He was hairless and had no patterning anywhere on his body. Look at the rest of them; stripes, fur, beards, long hair, what have you. Nope, not Panthro, and that's one of the things that sets him apart.

He's strong, but also skilled in martial arts, and wields a pair of nun-chucks that have raking claws and can spray various poison gases. He's also a skilled pilot and mechanic and drives a massive tank (which also has raking claws) to work.

There was an admittedly cooler updated Panthro that came out in 2011, this time with some hair even, but after speaking with the board of directors at Thor's Day Heroes, it was made clear that they wanted the 'classic' Panthro in their ranks.
