History

The foetid, unwholesome entity now known as Judge Mortis was once human, a Judge on the parallel world known as 'Deadworld'. He had himself transformed by black magic into his current undead form in order to become one of Judge Death's Dark Judges. During the fall of Deadworld he took over his country's environmental control and used it to introduce dead fluids into the food and water supplies, and to create deadly weather events.

Mortis has clashed repeatedly with both Judge Dredd and Psi-Judge Anderson in that capacity, most notably during the incident known as Necropolis, and was last seen floating in space after the Dark Judges' failed attempt to take over the colony ship Mayflower. No doubt he will somehow return to wreak more havoc in Mega-City One.

In the Dreams of Deadworld series by Kek-W and Dave Kendall, Judge Mortis' hobbies were shown to be gardening and wine-making. (You don't want to see his garden, and you seriously don't want to drink his wine.) His most prized possession is a gold pocket watch bearing the inscription 'With love forever J'.

Powers and abilities

Powers

Judge Mortis is a disembodied spirit who gains corporeal form by possessing the bodies of others using chemicals called 'dead fluids', a process which kills the host body.

Abilities

Judge Mortis's touch causes rapid decay, his victims literally disintegrating almost instantly. It can also corrode inanimate material.

Strength level

Probably superhuman.

Weaknesses

Judge Mortis can be temporarily incapacitated by a hi-ex bullet (as demonstrated by then-cadet Giant in 2000 AD prog 689).

Notes

'Mortis' is Latin for 'death'.

Trivia

Judge Mortis' appearance is based on a sheep's skull Brian Bolland found while walking in the Lake District.
