Biography

Original multiverse

Military career

In the early 13th century, Genghis Khan became the leader of the Mongols.[2] At some point, Vandal Savage served as his most trusted advisor.[3] After much war and conquest, Genghis Khan soon founded the Mongol Empire.

Anachronism

It was theorized that Genghis Khan might end up being one of the anachronisms caused by Mallus, although it was not specified whether he actually was.[4]

Hell

After he died, Genghis Khan's soul ended up in Hell, and his soul coin was seen among Neron's collection.[5]

Return and death

Genghis Khan was released from Hell by Astra Logue as an encore and Astra gave him a magical sword. Finding himself buried in a tomb when he was resurrected, Khan spent the next 700 years digging his way out of his grave. When he finally resurfaced in 1997, Genghis Khan fought the Legends and was killed by Charlie using his own sword.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Historically, Temüjin Borjigin became known as Genghis Khan the founder of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death. He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia. After founding the Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan", he launched the Mongol invasions that conquered most of Eurasia.
    • In the DC Comics, Genghis Khan remains largely the same figure, although his descendants and deeds are slightly fictionalized. One of the common adjustments is that Vandal Savage has some relation to Khan's conquest (usually that Khan is one of the identities Savage has used across the centuries).
