Dr. Igor Itzelf (AKA:”The Professor”) is the grandson of little known German wrestling great,
“ Der Uberman.” As he grew up he became bored with the global accolades that his multiple PhDs brought
him, and at the
prompting of his less-talented Med School Classmate, Douglas Houser, took upon himself to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather. He studied fighting styles from
video games around the world and worked on a genetics modification program to create the perfect
wrestler. Rather than experiment on himself, he chose to experiment on those more expendable (Read: anyone else).
His first creation, Entropy, we the
genetic mutation combination of 2 men, with the superhuman strength… of
second Creation, Cataclysm, was ultimately a failure. His feline DNA splice made him too unruly and unpredictable. Sadly, Dr. Itzelf, had him neutered and sent him to live with a
73 year old widow in Parsippany.
-His third creation, Black Cat, was already
known to the FUW, and it came as a great surprise to
fans to find out that he was one of Dr. Itzelf’ s Creations.
-His fourth creation, the Gemini twins (Castor and Pollux) were
the flip side of Entropy. They were one good wrestler genetically divided and transmuted into two better
wrestlers. Eventually one of the twins suffered cerebral de-evolution and believed himself a petty thief
(see: Klepto) and the tag team duo had to be retired.
Through his experimentation, Dr. Itzelf was able to develop the “Super-Pseudo- Psycho-Electrolytic Compound.” A fluid that he would imbibe that would
give him a short burst of physical and martial enhancement, which he would use to great effect in the ring.
For a short time, Dr. Itzelf wrestled (in
his grandfather’s wrestling uniform) for the FUW alongside his creations (and
sometimes against them, when they would go astray) but
found his niche in the FUW as color commentator alongside Ric Bear. Though as with all wrestling ‘retirements’, he would occasionally be called
upon to enter the ring.
Dr. Igor Itzelf currently lives in an undisclosed
location with his genetically enhanced ‘Birthing Surrogate’ and is reported to be training his fourth and fifth creations.
