Ghoul is an ancient demonic undead nightmare and enemy to the Offbeats
The Ghoul was just what his name suggested, a ghoul, a race of flesh eating beings with yellow skin, red eyes, slit-nostrils, sharp teeth and ridiculously large lower jaws. The Ghoul was born in ancient Persia and terrorized the land, feasting on the living and the dead alike. He was undefeatable in battle because he could shape shift into any animal, had superhuman strength (He was able to lift up to 25 tones) was immune to pain and could not be simply killed because as an undead monster simply stabbing him wasn't enough. However in an attempt to stop him an army was amassed in an attempt to at least imprison him. Although they suffered many casualties the army was able to tie him up in magic chains and imprison him in an incredibly strong tomb that could keep him trapped in there without fear of him breaking out.
However his eternal imprisonment was not meant to be as thousands of years later his tomb was destroyed by builders putting up a hospital in that area. He quickly dispatched and ate the construction workers and journeyed away eventually finding himself on a large cruise liner heading for England. Disguising himself as a tourist he managed to sneak aboard. Unfortunately for everyone on board Ghoul was not able to control his hunger and he ate everyone on board.
Upon arriving in England he slipped off the cruise liner and watched in amusement as the police made the gruesome discovery of the cruise liner. Wandering off he quickly killed more people until he was eventually discovered by the Red Knight, a local superhero. A long and epic battle occurred where both sides seemed even until Ghoul stole the Red Knight's golden morning star and killed him with it. After stealing the Red Knight's amour he set off once again.
New York, New York
This time however he ended up in America after getting on a plane. Upon arriving he terrorized New York until the arrival of the Offbeats. Disgusted at Ghoul's psychotic nature they attacked him with all the power they had. After a long and hard fought battle Ghoul was temporarily paralyzed. The Offbeats took him to Dr. Strange he examined him and was horrified. He sealed him away in another dimension of darkness. Unfortunately for them all he escaped when a random anomaly pulled him from his prison and sent him back to earth. He continues to terrorize the world but often by taking out small places at a time.
During the zombie outbreak he spent his time hanging out with the villains. He was spared from being eaten when he proved to them that because he was also technically undead he tasted terrible. Not believing him at first he tossed them one of his fingers, which the villains squabbled over until Sabretooth vomited after eating it, proving that he was in fact inedible although they were slightly nervous about being around him due to him eating dead flesh as well. He eased them of their paranoia when he told them about how he tried to eat zombie Arcade only for him to find out how bad undead flesh tastes. He was later killed during the fight for Galactus's remains when Captain America blasted him in the face with the power cosmic
