Powers and Abilities

Super powers

  • Creeper Form: The Creeper's powers are physical in nature, as a result of Yatz's invention. Jack Ryder can transform into the Creeper virtually instantaneously, and vice versa.
  • Superhuman Agility: This enables him to perform amazing feats of acrobatics and leaping, as he can jump high enough to scale any building. He also seems able to climb walls with little or no difficulty.
  • Superhuman Healing Factor: Which enables him to heal from virtually any wound. Indeed, gunshots and stab wounds have healed in a matter of minutes. It even allowed him to return from death when his body regenerated after being torn apart by Eclipsed hyenas.
  • Hypnotic Intimidation: Apparent intimidation/hypnosis ability as one of the thugs was apparently mesmerized after an encounter with the Creeper.


  • Expert Combatant: These combined abilities make Creeper a formidable fighter, incorporating brawling techniques with his physical prowess. A signature move is jumping onto the backs of his opponents and throwing them off balance.
  • Journalism


The Creeper made his first appearance in Showcase # 73 (April 1968).[1]
