History

George Moore, alias The Torso from Newcastle, was (along with Middenface McNulty, Johnny Alpha, Clacton Fuzz, Studs Boyce and Evans the Fist) one of the leaders of the Mutant Army which rose up in protest at Nelson Bunker Kreelman's anti-mutant policies in 2167 AD. He later became a Search/Destroy Agent (or 'Strontium Dog'), a mutant bounty hunter, and helped Johnny to bring the mutant terrorist William Blood Moon to justice. Torso (as his friends called him) was killed by the Stix Brothers while aiding Johnny Alpha against Kreelman when the villain returned and took control of the Search/Destroy Agency.

Notes

Like the Gronk, the Torso has a mouth in his stomach. The Gronk speaks through his nose, but the Torso is mute, which suggests that the orifice in his stomach has no vocal chords, and that if he does have a nose it is not equipped for communication. He does, however, breath (see quotes page).

Trivia

  • In 2000 AD prog 242 a reader told Tharg, "The mutant generals in Strontium Dog were sentenced to death by hanging. But General Torso from Newcastle has no neck, so it would be impossible." Tharg replied that Nelson Kreelman's forces "would have hung the Torso by his feet!"
  • The Torso featured in a one-page humour strip in the 2000 AD 40th Anniversary Special which was drawn by Patrick Goddard. He was shown give the reader a cheery thumbs up.
