The Shocking Truth Behind Peacemaker's White Dragon


The first season of HBO Max's "Peacemaker" has been completed, and the series is gearing up for Season 2.

While the show's ratings have not been as high as some of its other D.C. Extended Universe shows, it has garnered critical praise for its unique take on the superhero genre. Viewers also loved how it changes things up from the typical superhero stories we see.

While the show is filled with many great characters, one character in the series has become perhaps more talked about than any other: Auggie Smith's character.

Who is White Dragon?

The character is a force of vengeance, and it's clear that D.C.'s White Dragon is not to be messed with. He's been a part of the comics since the very beginning of "Peacemaker" issues, becoming more prominent as the series has progressed.

In his earliest appearances, he goes after criminals that have escaped prison or even people who have broken out early on parole. But, each time, he leaves a calling card: the image of a white dragon.

The white dragon is an ancient symbol of justice in China.

Being an ancient justice symbol makes the use of it by D.C.'s all the more fitting. Some might say it's just what he needs to indeed be effective in his mission to protect the innocent and destroy evil-doers wherever he finds them.

The symbol white dragon was inspired from has been used since ancient China during the Shang Dynasty that began around 1600 B.C., which makes sense considering how powerful it is and how long it's been around for its logo. 

Of course, the character's creator might have known this when he chose such an intricate symbol for his vigilante character.
