The shape of the female uterus resembles the outline of a person standing straight with her arms open wide; this is the source of inspiration for the character Uterus-Man. On the configuration of Uterus-Man, each part of its armor coincides with different parts of a human uterus. Despite the ambiguity of the gender of Uterus-Man, the source of these super powers originates from the uterus’ unique ability to propagate. This contradictory configuration determines the asexuality of Uterus-Man. “It” possesses all kinds of unique ultra-deadly weapons, part of these retains the power of altering genes and heredity functions. For example, using the power of gene alteration, its attack can instantly change the enemy into a weaker species, and then carry on the attack. The power of altering hereditary functions can change the sexual gender of the enemy, or instantaneously evoke a genetic disease to weaken the enemy, and then attack again.
