History[]

Impetigo Jones is a character from the 2000 AD strip Strontium Dog. Born a mutant, he was the principal henchman of the villainous Max Bubba, and assisted him in his attempt to destroy human history by going back in time to the Viking era and killing people. His murderous ways eventually caught up with him, but not before he had been complicit in the murder of time-displaced Wulf Sternhammer, earning him the undying enmity of Wulf's friend, Strontium Dog Johnny Alpha, with predictably fatal consequences.

Powers and abilities[]

Notes[]

Somewhat improbably, Impetigo Jones returned as the star of a one-off flashback story, Impetigo Jones-the Big Scab in issue #24 of the Strontium Dog fanzine Dogbreath in 2011, by writer Greg Meldrum and artist David Broughton.
