Characters: Strontium Dog

Johnny Alpha

  • Afro Asskicker
  • Awesome McCoolname: Invoked. His real last name is Kreelman.
  • Badass
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Cain and Abel: Has two half brothers, both of whom are staunchly anti-mutant.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Epically so.
  • Came Back Wrong: Two examples. In one Strontium Dogs strip, he is back in constant pain until the Gronk gives him a Mercy Kill. During The Life And Death Of Johnny Alpha, he comes back with a parasitic spirit inhabiting him. Even when he gets rid of it, he's more ruthless than he was during his first life.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Johnny's time as a guerilla soldier during the Mutant Uprising seem to have left him with a distinct aversion to anything remotely resembling a "fair fight". Knuckledusters, explosives, booby-traps and Time Travel weapons are regular parts of his arsenal.
  • Compressed Hair: How that afro fits into that helmet, we'll never know.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Subverted. Johnny is rarely seen without his, and it does save his life on occasion.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Does this to allow the other mutants to escape at the end of The Final Solution and may have done it again at the end of The Life And Death Of Johnny Alpha.
