Started with a Bomarr Monk from Star Wars, pulled off everything but the legs and body. Glued a Stone Cold Steve Austin head to it. Dremelled off his mustache and add a little length to the goatee and repainted. Comments and suggestions welcomed.
Chondu was born Harvey Schlemerman in West Kingston, Rhode Island. Chondu was once a sideshow magician before becoming a professional criminal. He can cast minor magical spells and is a minor adept in the mystic arts.
In his first appearance, Chondu lectured on yoga, and sent escaped convict Joe Parker to Limbo.
Chondu joined the Headmen, and caused an insanity-inducing "black rain." Dr. Arthur Nagan transplanted Chondu's brain into the body of Nighthawk in the Headmen’s bid to exploit the abilities of the Defenders. Doctor Strange later mystically placed Chondu's consciousness within the body of a fawn. The Headmen then gave Chondu a monstrous, demonic-looking form with eight lampreys for arms, bat-wings, a horn from his skull, a forked tongue, and eagle’s feet. In this form, he had superhuman strength, could fly, and could constrict objects with his tentacle-like arms. This drove Chondu insane, and he battled the Valkyrie. Alongside the Headmen, he later schemed to control the world, but was defeated by the Defenders. With the Headmen, he became involved in a brawl at a "Bar With No Name."
The Headmen later hired the Ringmaster's Circus of Crime to capture the She-Hulk. The Headmen placed Chondu's head onto a clone of her body, and used chemical means to restore his sanity. Chondu regained his sanity but was furious at being given a woman’s body. She-Hulk and Spider-Man battled the Headmen, and in the course of the fight, Chondu's head was knocked free from its new body. Chondu remained alive thanks to life-support equipment attached to his head.
