Ogun is a member of the Vodū, an extra-dimensional race of beings worshiped by the people of West Africa and by practitioners of Afro-Caribbean religions like Vodun (falsely but famously known as 'Voodoo'), Santeria, Candomblé or Umbanda.
Ogun was also the master of the Petro Loas, here depicted as evil demon like spirits.. Since ages Ogun has tried to conquer Earth, but once was sealed by Papa Legba and the Sorcerer Supreme Makeen. Due to this occasion Ogun lost his hand.
Shortly after Doctor Voodoo became Sorcerer Supreme, he opened the gate to Bondyé to save the reality from Nightmare's assault. Although he sealed the gateway, it was broken by one of Ogun's Petro Loas.
- Optic Blast: It is shown that Ogun is able to shoot fire from his eyes.
- The Òrìshà Ogun is not to be confused with the Japanese samurai, Ogun.
- Ogun's name is pronounced as 'oh-GOON'. The last part (-goon) is vocalized nasally.
- Ogun's name 'the Slayer' in Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural Vol 1 dates from his Catholic counterpart Archangel Saint Michael who is also called the Dragon Slayer.
