Fictional character biography

Flying Tiger's true identity is unknown. A professional football player whose career was cut short, he developed a costume that enabled him to fly.

He started his criminal career as a mercenary assassin when he was hired to kill the original Spider-Woman. Some time after failing at this, he fought the Fantastic Four. He was later hired to kill businessmen Regis Fussky but was stopped from doing so by Iron Man/Jim Rhodes.

During the Acts of Vengeance, Doctor Doom used an Aggression Enhancer on Flying Tiger and other villains to attack the Fantastic Four when they stood before congress. They were defeated by the Fantastic Four. Flying Tiger was next seen being admitted into the Vault following a massive prison escape attempt.

Later, Flying Tiger joined the Crimson Cowl's Masters of Evil. The group's plot to blackmail the governments of the world using a weather-controlling machine was stopped by the Thunderbolts.

Later in San Francisco, Flying Tiger was defeated by Armory. [1]


Flying Tiger wears body armor under a tiger costume, and is capable of powered flight. He has enhanced strength, durability, endurance and a set of claws.
