Menthor is a superhero in the comic series T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and has a split personality: one a hero and the other a villain.

Origin[edit | edit source]

When an evil double agent named John Janus tried on an experimental helmet, he gave himself vast mental powers, but also created a second personality with a heroic streak named Menthor.

Biography[edit | edit source]

John Janus' past is largely unknown.  At some point, he became a willing agent of the villain known as Warlord and his organization S.P.I.D.E.R.   At age 28, he was sent by Warlord to infiltrate T.H.U.N.D.E.R., a secret organization that opposed S.P.I.D.E.R. by joining them as a double agent.  S.P.I.D.E.R. provided Janus with a special helmet that gave him mental powers which he used to spy on T.H.U.N.D.E.R. However, the helmet had an unexpected side effect on his mind, giving him a second personality.
