Bison (William "Billy" Kitson) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Publication history[edit]

Bison first appeared in Thunderstrike #13 (October 1994) and was created by Tom DeFalco, Ron Frenz, and Al Milgrom.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Billy Kitson was a champion basketball player who won a college scholarship and planned to become a professional basketball player, until another player accidentally tripped him resulting in Billy getting a broken leg. This ended his dreams and his relationship with his girlfriend Shimari Asbery. Billy later made contact with the Egyptian God Seth who turned Billy into the man-bull creature Bison to serve Seth in exchange for his leg being healed.[1] Seth sent Bison to capture a sample of the Inferno-42 weapon from S.H.I.E.L.D. This resulted in Shimari turning to Luke Cage (who was an old neighborhood friend of Billy) and Thunderstrike to help Billy. Bison also ran afoul of Seth's other minions Quicksand and Mongoose, whom Bison later teamed up with to fight Luke Cage and Thunderstrike. However, Billy later turned on his partners, and after saving agent Alex DePaul from his Mandroid armor, Bison was let go. Cage and Thunderstrike left the scene with Bison and Shamari back together again.[2]

Later on, Bison joined the 7th incarnation of the Masters of Evil led by Crimson Cowl where they installed numerous weather modulators all around the globe. Bison's motive for joining the Masters of Evil was to get enough money for his own cure and reunite with Shimari. Bison was defeated in combat by the Thunderbolts.[3]

It is revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy series that Bison is one of the inmates left behind in the Negative Zone's Prison 42 where he, Condor, and Gorilla-Man are involved in a fight with Star-Lord who, with the help of Jack Flag, is trying to stop Blastaar and his horde from invading Earth via the closed portal.[4]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Bison's transformation has made him incredibly strong. His flesh has been toughened by his transformation. His horns can be used to violently gore an opponent.
