About DC Nation:
DC Nation is an exciting one-hour block of original programming and exclusive content on Cartoon Network that's based on the DC Comics library of legendary characters. Saturdays at 10a/9c on Cartoon Network! The Creature Commandos are a fictional DC Comics team of militarized superhumans, based on supernatural creatures of legend that originally operated during World War II. Making their debut in Weird War Tales #93 (November 1980), the team was created by J. M. DeMatteis and artist Pat Broderick. The original team consisted of Lt. Matthew Shrieve (a normal human), Warren Griffith (a werewolf), Sgt. Vincent Velcro (a vampire), Pvt. Elliot "Lucky" Taylor (Frankenstein's monster) and Dr. Myrna Rhodes (a gorgon). In The New 52 (a reboot of the DC Comics universe), a new version of the Creature Commandos were introduced and featured in the pages of Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E.. This incarnation of the team works as field agents for the secretive organization S.H.A.D.E., and are led by Frankenstein. The rest of the team consists of Khalis (who appears to be an Egyptian mummy), Warren Griffith (a werewolf), and Vincent Velcoro (given vampire-like powers through a modified version of the Langstrom formula). Griffith and Velcoro were both originally humans who volunteered to be transformed by Dr. Nina Mazursky, who later transformed herself into an amphibious creature resembling the Gill-man in order to fight alongside the team.
