"In the days of Genghis Khan, a disloyal warrior was tied to a wild horse and then set free."
Nicholas Pike[src]

Genghis Khan was a warrior leader.


At some point in history, Genghis Khan led warriors in battle. If any were disloyal to him, Genghis Khan would punish them by tying the warrior to a wild horse.[1]


At some point in 20th century, Nicholas Pike studied the deeds of Genghis Khan, partially modeling his modus operandi as the leader of Dark Riders. In 1990, a member of the Riders, Rick, was executed via a method similar to Genghis Khan's, albeit with a motorcycle riddled with explosives rather than a horse.[1]


  • Leadership/Tactician: Genghis Khan is historically known for being skilled and ruthless military leader.[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.
