The Black Racer is the physical personification of "Death" to the New Gods of Apokolips and New Genesis. He appears as a medieval knight in black armor riding skis. His body belongs to a man named Willie Walker, a paralyzed Vietnam War veteran who was selected to wield this power by the Source. There have been several others to act as his host. The Black Racer was created by Jack Kirby as part of his Fourth World saga, first appearing in New Gods #3. (1971)
