Many children in Northern India know about Raj Comics but when my father retired from his job we moved to Kerala I came to know that children here were not even aware of this name.So I wanted to just refresh my knowledge about Raj Comics and wanted to share my views with someone interested ,that’s why I chose this as my first blog topic.

Raj Comics

NAGRAJ (snake king)

Nagraj

Nagraj

This character was founded in late 1980s by Sanjay Gupta.Personally speaking, he is my favorite superhero in the Raj Comic series.He has great superpowers which are very unique & impressive. He is believed  to be inspired by mythological Ichchhadhaari Naags (shape shifting snakes), historical Vishmanushya (venomous human).This character shows  rich signs of mythology,magic and science fiction.Moreover,this also b rings out the unique popular Indian beliefs about snakes .He hides his real personality under an ordinary Mahanagar citizen ‘RAJ ‘.Though comic fans are vanishing in India ,Nagraj’s fans are increasing.

Super Commando Dhruva

Dhruv

Dhruv

I think this character from Raj Comics is the second most powerful character after Nagraj .Dhruva has the ability to talk to animals and birds; he is well trained in marshal arts and has a very sharp brain, which enables him to combat many powerful super-villains. He does not have any superpowers but he utilizes the things around him and this makes his opponents very difficult to beat him. That’s why he is considered as the most brilliant superhero in Raj Comic’s series. His comics have suspense, science fiction and intelligence.

Doga

Well what to say about Doga.Frankly speaking I think this superhero will be the most famous superhero if  released before people in Western countries thanks to its style & manly features.Like Dhruva, he also doesn’t has any superpowers but is able to communicate with Dogs who help him gain information as he travels the sewers of Mumbai also he relies on his Martial Arts training, his fearlessness, his physical power which is a result of his years spent in the gym as well as a fairly large arsenal of guns and bombs.

Doga

Doga

Suraj who later on became Doga was found in wastes dump by Halkan Singh who was a dacoit .Though he brought him up he, treated and even called him as a dog, which made Suraj a sociopath, who later on became Doga .Literally he is very violent towards his enemies and thinks of killing the problem instead of solving it. These characters has the most number of fans after Nagraj and guess what, Bollywood’s famous movie director Anurag Kashyap  will be making a movie on Doga’s character whose hero will be Kunal Kapoor.

Cobi

Thousands of years ago a kingdom named Wolfano had many highly evolved breeds of wolf and they could walk upright. Their king was Wolfa who tricks and marries a human girl Survaiya. Their son is Cobi. Unfortunately, destiny brings Cobi in the hand of a curse from Survaiya. The curse changes Cobi into a golden statue. After thousands of years Cobi finds himself in the jungles of Assam.

Cobi

As time passes by Cobi finds a master for himself named ‘Bhatiki’. He taught  Cobi different skills and Cobi then lives in those jungles with the name Bheriya. Eventually, the natives worshipped him as their Wolf God and Cobi began to protect them. The special powers of Cobi are that he can lengthen his tail according to his desire and uses it as his weapon, a very powerful mace comes to his hand when he cries out the name of Wolf God and moreover, he can call his army of millions of wolfs during extreme danger.

Bheriya

Actually Bheriya is evolved from Cobi but unlike cobi he has more patience

Bheriya

and has many times beaten Cobi. The evolution of Bheriya from Cobi is very interesting and one must read it himself to fully enjoy it. Bhatiki (Cobi’s master) splits the two personalities in Cobi –one animal (wolf) and violent part and other calm. The violent part is Cobi himself and the other part is ‘Bheriya’. Bhatiki wanted to send Cobi to Wolfano but fails. Bheriya marries Jane and begins to live in the jungle. Jane was a spy of France, she came in Assam during a mission and fell in love with Bheriya.She wants Cobi and Bheriya to be one again.Bheriya is a fearsome warrior and knows many ancient tricks and fighting skills.

Raj Comics is going to start a new comic series on Bheriya namely Amar Prem (Immortal Love).
