A new look at Stargirl villain Dragon King has been released, and he looks incredibly menacing.
Shared by LJ Supersuits, the concept art shows Dragon King covered in blood, with surgical tools belted around his waist. The caption reads, “Behold Dragon King from the upcoming Stargirl! Getting more excited for the release! Concept art by Luca Nemolato.”
The bloody aesthetic falls in line with Dragon King’s backstory. In the 1940s, Dr. Ito was a scientist who conducted extreme experiments on himself and his victims. He altered his DNA to become a reptile hybrid and donned a dragon-themed hood, giving birth to the Dragon King in the process. Dragon King is the leader of the Injustice Society of America, the team of supervillains that defeated the original Justice Society of America, and continues their streak of evil in the modern age. The roster of villains includes Brain Wave, Tigress, Icicle, Sportsmaster, Wizard and Solomon Grundy.
DC Universe’s Stargirl stars Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore (Stargirl) and Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan (S.T.R.I.P.E.). The series will premiere Monday, May 18 on DC Universe and Tuesday, May 19 on The CW.
