―Polka-Dot Man[src]

Abner Krill, also known as Polka-Dot Man, is a metahuman criminal from Gotham City who can grow multi-colored polka-dots from his body and can turn them into weapons. He is also a member of the second Task Force X strike team sent to Corto Maltese.[2]


Early life


Abner Krill was born to his mother who is a scientist that is obsess with superheroes. So much so, she used Abner and his siblings as her experiments to see them becoming superheroes with super powers. However, the ending results in some of Abner's siblings survived and some had died. Abner has a rare skin disease as a result of the experiment in which he has the ability to grow multi-colored polka-dots and glowing pustules on his face and his body. He has to release those twice a day, otherwise they’ll eat him up from inside.

Polka-Dot Man is very soft-spoken, dourly dispirited, and doesn't seem very confident in his metahuman abilities, often looking nervous in battle. He is miserable and has a death wish, wanting to die on his Task Force X mission. He is also a cynic, taking up the mantle of "the crazy one" with no issue or debate.
