The Wendigo is the result of an ancient curse laid down by Elder Gods of Canadian folklore that transforms any person who eats the flesh of another human being in the Canadian wilderness into a massive, fur-covered humanoid beast with fangs and razor sharp claws. Recently, it has been revealed that a person can inherit the curse of the Wendigo if he or she is bitten by the beast and survives. All Wendigos possess sufficient superhuman strength to lift up to 100 tons. Wendigos have proven to stale mate an enraged Hulk. Wendigos, in spite of their great size, also possess superhuman speed and stamina, capable of exerting themselves for several days before becoming fatigued. The Wendigo also possesses a highly advanced healing factor capable of fully healing almost any injury. The only known method of killing a Wendigo is to remove the curse by sacrificing a heart to the Elder Gods, whilst in Canada. For general appearances of Wendigo, click here.
