Parmanu, is the next of our series on Indian Superheroes. Parmanu is like desi Iron Man. We don’t want to talk about RD Junior, but Parmanu’s suit is way cooler. He has powers where he can change his size, disintegrate himself at atomic level, and what not. He can pull trains, lift helicopter and beats his enemies to pulp. Parmanu appeared in numerous solo comics as well as lot of special along with Super Commando Dhruv, Nagraj and Doga.

His only aim is to eliminate crime and the only way he knows to do that, is to eliminate the criminals themselves. Doga shows no pain. Doga shows no mercy. He is watching.
