Savitar Bandu, aka Shadowdragon is the hereditary prince of the tiny ancient Himalayan monarchy of Bhutran. To avoid this inheritance, Bandu fled to Metropolis.
Several years later, Tehrac and Bhutran went to war with one another, during the first few weeks following the overthrow and imprisonment of Kalyan Nong Hoi in Kota Zamfir. Nuclear missiles were launched. Superman personally intervened a number of times in these hostilities, and finally was able to impose peace.
Points of Interest
- Bhutran on New Earth might or might not correspond geographically to Bhutan on the Real World.
- In Supermen of America #1, Tehrac and Bhutran are both described by a television announcer as "Southeast Asian Countries," and both as bordering on the Chaitan Desert, but in Adventures of Superman #566, Tehrac is called a "Middle Eastern Country." Bhutran was established in Superman (Volume 2) #97 as being in the Himalayas.
