The measure of any hero is the evil they must defeat. To date, Nightclaw & Prowler have faced and defeated costumed criminals, mad scientists, monsters, and unspeakable horrors that would test any great hero. Below are some of the enemies this pre-teen pair of heroes have overcome but may have to face again.
The Sea Phantom
Nothing is known to the public at large about the origin or identity of the creature dubbed by Nightclaw and Prowler as the "Sea Phantom." All that is known is that it has a monstrous desire to see Nightclaw and Prowler destroyed and merge their powers with itself. In truth, the Sea Phantom is the water entity that has existed since the creation of the world. It has used what it has learned about human society to take its humanoid form to find and destroy the two heroes.
The Great Gymnastico
Teased and tormented in high school, Gregory Swain--the boy who would later become the masked criminal The Great Gymnastico--built his body and honed his athletic skills through gymnastics. He became a master at the sport and won many tournaments. Greg discovered his talents came in handy when fighting his high school tormentors. Spurred on by the adrenaline he got from fighting, Greg became a bully himself and was expelled from school for severely beating a classmate. Not daunted by this turn of events, Greg took to training his skills further and began to use them for criminal enterprises. With his talents, he could scale walls and slip into almost any sealed area; skills he found most handy in breaking into banks and vaults. Seeking the thrill of the chase, Greg adopted the identity of the Great Gymnastico and enjoyed a successful two-year run as a costumed criminal. He was eventually brought to justice by Nightclaw and Prowler. Vowing revenge, the Great Gymnastico has since used his skills to escape from prison. His current whereabouts are unknown.
Prof. Anne Mary-Ann
Professor Anne Mary-Ann has found life to be one large bore since she graduated high school at the age of six. An unequaled genius, Mary-Ann gained her professorship by age 13 and decided that scholastics held no meaning for her. At sixteen, the professor began to experiment with the fabric of life itself: DNA. Not suffering from the anchor of "useless morals" (as she called them), Prof. Mary-Ann began to experiment with combining DNA from various species. Over several years time, the professor created one monstrosity after another bringing down the wrath of the world's scientific community. Universally shunned by society, Prof. Many-Ann stranded herself and several unwitting boat passengers on an uncharted island. There, she continued her experiments on her fellow castaways. After a few months, the Professor built a boat and left her creations on the island to return to society...and rule it. Upon her return, she read about two beings with superpowers--Nightclaw and Prowler--and knew that she would have to eliminate this threat to her plans.
In the year 1837, a Kentucky coal miner named Jacob Wilkinson discovered a strange gemstone deep in one of the mine's tunnels. Hearing a strange yet compelling voice from the gem, Jacob took it and hid it in his house. Over the years, Jacob learned to use the gemstone to steal the life force of other people to keep himself young. Finally, the townspeople began to notice that Jacob was not aging as a normal man would, if at all. Fearful of their neighbor, the townsfolk drove Jacob--now fully aware and embracing the power he had possessed--out of town and into the hills. As time passed, so did the memory of Jacob and the terror he held over the town. But unknown to all, Jacob found a new way to draw the lifeforce from others a little at a time. Since children provided the most energy, Jacob became the founder and head councellor of Camp Tomahawk in order to have a continuous supply of victims.
A creature of unrelenting evil, this being has lived in the darkest corners of the minds of little children everywhere. An immortal entity, the Boogeyman can manifest itself in the places children fear most (closets, under beds, in forests, and so on). Its sole purpose is to cause terror. Without terror, the Boogeyman becomes powerless and cannot exist. If fear is present, the Boogeyman has unlimited power and is nearly unstoppable. More than anything, it wants to terrify the two children whose power rivals its own: Nightclaw and Prowler.
