Character information

In many ways the brains behind the Mutant's operations, Vultureman's skill with all things electrical, mechanical, and chemical marks him out as the most intelligent of the group. He is most dangerous behind the cockpit of his Flying Machine or a SkyCutter. Vultureman is a crafty opportunist who serves as chief inventor and his skills with both machines and science make him frequently indispensable, but he is more often than not blamed when his devices or machines fail to live up to Slithe's expectations (In one episode, he grew tired of this and activated a hidden self-destruct mechanism in every single machine and vehicle the Mutants used, telling them that if his work was really so bad, then "See how you do without them!"). As befits a scientist, Vultureman is inquisitive and open-minded, frequently leaving him odd-man-out among his more barbaric peers.


Vultureman's ambitious nature is evident by the number of times he has broken ranks with the Mutants, either going solo or joining up with the ThunderCats' other enemies, such as the Lunataks. Much later, he decides to work for his own gains, and he often strikes solo deals with Mumm-Ra.


  • In his first four appearances, Vultureman was voiced by Bob McFadden. Earl Hammond would begin voicing the character in Sixth Sense and continue to do so for the remainder of the series.
