Charybdis was a dragon-like leviathan. She was summoned by the Huntsman to battle Hercules and the Sub-Mariner.[1]


Presumably those of a typical Olympian including superhuman strength and durability.

Roy Thomas seems to have gotten the legends and descriptions of Scylla and Charybdis mixed up, as Scylla, who is described as being transformed into a six-headed dragon, appears as a being of living stone, while Charybdis, who is described as becoming a living cliff, appears as a dragon-like creature.
