Powers/Abilities: Among the inventions the Count has created are a potion which gives superhuman strength, one which made people younger, and one which made them older. He had a gas, Métomol, derived from obscure poisonous mushrooms (one of Champignac's trademarks is that much of his chemistry is derived from mushrooms) which make any metal object as soft as chewing gum. He once revived a dinosaur, and another time accidentally turned himself evil through a failed experiment.

History: The Count of Champignac is an inventor and friend of the adventurers Spirou and Fantasio. His incredible discoveries have been the source of many of their adventures.
