Ever since I was a small child, I have been fascinated by the legend of the werewolf. Werewolves were often portrayed as beasts with immense speed, strength, and insatiable hunger for flesh. Apart from their supernatural power and savage predatory instincts, I was intrigued with the transformation process between human and beast due to the way their physiology slowly and often painfully shifts into something new.
In many ways, werewolves remind me of the Incredible Hulk from Marvel Comics because they both start out as human beings one moment and change into mindless beasts the next. In addition, werewolves are similar to Superman as well because they are empowered by the moon just as Superman is empowered by the sun and are vulnerable to silver just as Superman is vulnerable to Kryptonite.
Just as I have based characters off of other mythological creatures such as high elves and dwarves, I might base a future character on this infamous predator.
