Who Is White Dragon In DC Comics?
In DC comic books, White Dragon is a white supremacist terrorist who poses as a vigilante. In the comic books, his real-life name is William Heller. Heller grew up in a rich family and was spoiled as an only child.
Heller’s parents were both killed after accidentally taking a wrong turn and ending up in the middle of a race war. Due to this, Heller went to live with his grandfather, a supporter of the Nazis during World War II. After being brought up around a Nazi supporter, Heller turned into a racist who would go on to create his own white supremacist group.
Before turning into White Dragon, Heller adopted the name of William Hell and became a masked vigilante. However, Hell would only turn over black, Latino, or Asian criminals over to the police. The Suicide Squad were then sent to take down William Hell, who would eventually appear wearing a suit of armour and known as White Dragon.
With a new episode of Peacemaker arriving next week, we may learn more about Peacemaker’s father, Auggie Smith. As Smith appears to be taking on the role of the White Dragon after his prison inmates clearly knew who he really was as they bowed down to him and referred to him as ‘White Dragon.
