On the otherdimensional "funny animal" world called Earth-C, Peter Porkchops lived an easy life during his young years, his only fear being a bully called "Wolfie" who usually tried to swindle Peter (and, on occasion, even eat him).

Years later, the adult Peter worked at a steel mill in Piggsburg when he was struck by a meteor fragment launched by Starro the Conqueror. The meteor gave Peter super-powers, transforming him into a Swine of Steel, the Porcine Powerhouse called Pig-Iron.

Joining forces with other meteor-struck animals, Pig-Iron became one of the founding members of the super-hero team called the Zoo Crew and distinguished himself in battle against threats such as the Frankenswine Monster.


As Pig-Iron, Peter has incredible strength and a body of near-indestructible steel.
