Tharg the Mighty

Also known as The Mighty One (or simply T.M.O.), Tharg is the alien editor of 2000 AD, the Galaxy's Greatest Comic. While he variously introduces his 3rillers, Future Shocks, Terror Tales, Time Twisters, Alien Invasions and Dragon Tales, he also has his own adventures (listed here) battling the Dictators of Zrag and the ever-present menace of the Thrill-Suckers.
