Daniel Ducannon is the White Dragon, a white supremacist posing as a vigilante, who tried manipulating public opinion in his favor in order to eradicate minorities through both words and violence.

Ducannon manifested powers after the Meta-Bomb event and spent a great deal of time training and refining them. Funded by ultra-right wing groups, he hired the MetaTech Corporation (a company specializing in the industrial uses and designs of metahumans) to create the White Dragon persona. Along with his new armor they helped devise a public relations campaign so that White Dragon would be initially perceived as a super-hero, thus making it easier to get a subtly-worded racist message out to the people. Ducannon operated as a vigilante in Chicago targeting only racial minorities and at first was careful to obey the law, only attacking criminals and refraining from killing. However, he eventually clashed with Hawkwoman, who took offense at Ducannon's racist and misogynistic ideology and exposed his identity while assisting lawmakers looking into his actions. However, Ducannon proved a savvy manipulator of the media and used his conflict with Hawkwoman to paint himself as being persecuted for his unpopular political opinions.

When Shayera and Hawkman went underground to escape extradition to Thanagar, Ducannon took the opportunity to go on a rampage through Chicago, setting fire to low-income minority neighborhoods. Katar and Shayera managed to stop him with the assistance of fellow Hawkman Carter Hall and Hawkgirl.[1]

Ducannon was later seen as one of the many escaped Belle Reve inmates assembled to hear Neron's offer of their fondest desires in exchange for their souls.[2]

Joker: Last Laugh

Ducannon was among the numerous Slabside Penitentiary prisoners turned into "Jokerized" versions of themselves and released to cause havoc by the Joker, who had learned he was suffering from inoperable cancer and therefore wanted to leave his mark on the world. An un-armored Ducannon and Warjack were eventually stopped by Militia.[3]

Fourth Reich

Ducannon resurfaced as a member of the Fourth Reich, now astride an actual white dragon. He participated in the Nazi villains' assaults on the Justice Society and their headquarters, yet even with his formidable new steed he was handily defeated every time.[4] [5]

Powers

  • Pyrokinesis: Ducannon can wield and control fire produced from his own body, usually via destructive blasts or slashing with short-range 'blades' of flame. Whenever he activates his powers his body ignites, giving him a monstrous fiery appearance with a skull-like face.
    • Flight: Ducannon can fly when on fire.
