The Tazmanian Tiger is a muscular human male. He wears a gaudy, skin-tight costume and mask, with razor sharp claws on his fingers, and is assisted in battle by Benjamin and Natasha. During the events of "Strangers", Tazmanian Tiger was 24 years old.  Greg Weisman revealed at the Gathering 2009 that the Tazmanian Tiger is wealthy and is engaged in being a supervillain for the thrill.
