Explanation of the conversion: The Vulnerability to Drains, Transfers and Dispels was added because the Wrecking Crew seem to constantly be loosing and regaining their powers. The Berserk is based on an issue of Alpha Flight where Thunderball went crazy when someone tried to control him.

History: See the history of the Wrecking Crew.

Note: Dirk is in no way connected with the first Wrecker, who was Doctor Karl Kort (Fantastic Four #12) or Wrecker II (Tales To Astonish #63).

Trivia: In the alternate future depicted in What If II #114 Dirk had a son and named him Teddy Garthwaite. This son became the villain known as Raze, having the enhanced strength of his father as well as his crowbar and the wrecking ball of Thunderball.

Powers: Wrecker III possesses enhanced strength enabling him to lift 20 tons. He has superhuman stamina and resistance to harm. He has an enchanted crowbar which is virtually indestructable, and has several magical properties. He can create a protective aura that deflects bullets, throw the crowbar and have it return to his hand, control the minds of people touching the bar, or use it to teleport himself and others. For a time he was granted the ability to absorb energy into his body to increase his strength by Arnim Zola.
