    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Richard III was re-animated by C.O.R (the British equivalent of S.T.A.R Labs), using a radical new cloning technique. The point of the experiment was to see if Richard was a benevolent ruler, or the monster of Shakespearian fame. At first, Richard masked his true nature. He became extremely popular with the public, and gained many followers on Twunter (a website closely resembling Twitter). He also became a spokesman for several corporations, gaining a large quantity of money. 
    Before long, Richard's true nature was revealed. Using the C.O.R cloning device, he re-animated several evil dead kings, granted with super powers. They began to try to conquer Great Britain. The Knight and Squire took down Richard, while local heroes defeated the other kinds. 


    Richard does not have any actual powers, though he does possess a great knowledge of history (thanks to C.O.R.) and has an uncanny knack for speaking in rhyming couplets.
