N'Kantu (The Living Mummy) is an ancient undead superhero in the Marvel Universe.

Origin[edit | edit source]

N'Kantu was the leader of a slave rebellion against the Eqyptian rulers.  After killing the pharoah Aram-Set, N'Kantu was mummified alive by a wizard and entombed for 3,000 years.  When he was revived in the modern era, he became a monstrous hero.

Biography[edit | edit source]

N'Kantu was born in Egypt and was the son of the T'Chombi, the chief of the Swarilli tribe, three millenia ago.  When N'Kantu reached age 21, he completed a Rite of Passage called the Test of the Lion, where he single-handedly killed a lion, proving himself a warrior and succeeding his father as cheiftain.  During this time, the Swarilli tribe had been enslaved by the Pharoah Aram-Set.  His people fought hard and Aram-Set attempted to break N'Kantu's spirit but his strength and resolve made it very difficult and made him a hero to his people. Later N'Kantu met a necromancer named Rakses and for reasons that are unclear the two became hateful enemies to each other.
