Real Name: Arnie Fentner
Identity/Class: Mutant human (Ace)
Occupation: School kid, would-be-superhero
Enemies: The Masons; the Astronomer
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: New York
First Appearance: Wild Cards
Powers/Abilities: Able to transform into any dinosaur he could envisage. However his mass remained the same, which meant that since he was only a kid, he tended to turn into really small dinosaurs. He seemed to prefer the forms of a tyrannosaurus (for combat) and pterodactyl (for flight and mobility).
History: Kid Dinosaur was a young Ace who wanted to be a superhero. He would tag along with adult Ace heroes (much to their annoyance), hoping to help them fight crime. As a result of one such instance, he was present during the Ace attack on the Mason's hideout, and helped break up that cult. Unfortunately for him, this made an enemy of the Astronomer, the psychotic founder of the group. On Wild Cards Day 1986, the Astronomer set out to kill as many of those who had interfered as possible. Kid Dinosaur was one such victim, literally ripped limb from limb in front of helpless witnesses.
