Timber Wolf is a fictional character in the thirtieth century of the DC Universe, a member of the Legion of Super-Animations. His real name is Brin Londo and he comes from the planet Zoon (spelt in later stories as Zuun). His powers are enhanced strength, speed and agility. He first appeared in Adventure Comics #327 (1964). At that time he was known as "Lone Wolf". He at that time believed himself to be an android, having been deceived by Karth Arn, an android belonging to Brin's father, Mar Londo. After Mar Londo's death, Karth Arn had taken Brin's identity and had convinced Brin that he was the android and Karth Arn the human. Brin later found out the truth and changed his name to Timber Wolf. He joined the Legion after being the first to graduate from the Legion Academy, along with Chemical King.
