Arak Son of Thunder

 ASOT   (DC, 1981-1985)

™ and ©1981 DC Comics, Inc.

On a Viking expedition in ages past, the Norsemen came across a sinking boat. The sole passenger: a boy with skin the color of fire. Taken in by the Vikings, the boy is called “Eric,” which he interprets as “Arak.” He soon grows into a man, and proves a naturally skilled warrior.

Years later, Arak accompanies the Vikings on a raid where the party is destroyed by mystical forces. Arak is the sole survivor. He then sets out on a path of adventure in an age of swords and sorcery, becoming a legend in an age of legends.

First appearing in Warlord #48, Arak was one of a number of epic fantasy titles tied into the Warlord world, including Arion, Lord of Atlantis, and Conqueror of the Barren Earth.
