Taking place in a "forgotten world," Warhund - who's clearly an Asian character modeled on what appears to be a very comic booky interpretation of Mongolian dress, but who has a semi-German name so I dunno - spends the vast majority of his adventure failing to live up to his name. Whoring, drinking, and then riding across the plains, Warhund doesn't have a lot invested in war so far. He doesn't even own a dog. Who do I talk to about this?
Despite a fearsome reputation, Warhund - the only son of an elderly local warlord - shows deep roots of compassion. When he's informed that his father is dying, he takes off at breakneck pace across the inhospitable desert of his homeworld. Despite the urgency of his ride, however, he pauses for several days to nurse back to health the young messenger who accompanies him, after the youngster succumbs to fatigue. Later on, he gets killed by wolves, but still Warhund seems like a nice guy.

Warhund almost disappears forever following this one appearance, except for a sneaky cameo in an issue of Animal Man further down the road, drawn by Warhund's co-creator Chas Truog. While several of Charlton's Action Heroes - Captain Atom, Blue Beetle, the Question and so on - were purchased by DC, the creator-owned heroes of the Bullseye books, among others, weren't part of the deal. Still, Warhund manages to sneak into a group shot of heroes from lost alternate universes. Basically, he's sort of Charlton's stowaway in the DC Universe, although we're pretty unlikely to see him pop up again any time soon.
