Sumo the Samurai was a Japanese super-villain during World War II.

During the 1940s he fought against Wonder Woman and later her colleagues in the All-Star Squadron. He was the best pupil of a martial arts master named "The Enlighted One", and was selected to drink the "Potion of Power", vastly increasing his strength, speed, resistance and senses.




  • Fanatism: Sumo worships the Emperor Hirohito as a god, as more Japanese people did during World War II. This impeded his ability to think rationally.
  • Sense of Honor: Sumo will never take unworthy advantages on a enemy because he is bound to the Bushido Code.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-Two era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and no longer apply.
