Dr. Arthur Pierce
Dr. Arthur Pierce is the main antagonist for the first few episodes of Starfishman. He is a brilliant but brutal scientist who has a military background and now specializes in underwater frequencies. His goal is to create a communications system beneath the oceans that requires no bulky cables - an important development if he can get it to work. The applications are impressive; not only could signals be sent secretly around the world, but the entire ocean floor and deep into the earth's crust could be mapped out for future resource extraction. Dr. Pierce also believes in the potential for these waves to be used as a weapon, a valuable application for the military.
In the catastrophic accident that occurs at The Pacific Marine Institute, Dr. Pierce is mutated into Lobstor, who becomes Starfishman's first supervillain and mortal enemy. Learn more about Lobstor here.
