The World's Finest Presents

Bios - Rudy Jones / Parasite

Voiced By: Brion James
First Appearance: "Feeding Time"
Position: Enemy

Bio: Petty thief and get-rich-quick opportunist Rudy Jones was working a janitorial job at S.T.A.R. Labs when he decided to steal some experimental biochemical and sell them to a S.T.A.R. competitor. Surprised by Superman, Jones fled the robbery scene, accidentally contaminating himself with the chemicals in the process. The chemicals permanently transformed Jones into an energy parasite, one who must regularly drain the life force from another living being in order to survive.

One touch of the Parasite's hands will leave a victim weakened and prolonged contact will kill them. When he drains his prey, Parasite not only takes on that person's energy, but their knowledge, memories, and any skills or powers they might have. Naturally this makes Parasite a deadly foe for Superman, for he cannot only weaken the Man of Steel but then turn around and fight him with his own stolen powers. In this state the Parasite also becomes temporarily aware that Clark Kent and Superman are one in the same, and so poses a deadly threat to Lois, Jimmy or anyone else close to Clark.
