The Blood Soldiers are killers for the Yakuza. "The Blood Soldiers" is an English translation of their Japanese name: Ketsueki-Senshi.
Is the villain named "Tiger" who appeared in Justice Society of America (vol. 3) #11 (Feb. 2008) as a member of the "Blood Soldiers" really the same character as the person named "Tiger" who first appeared in Judomaster #91 (Oct. 1966) and was a partner to the original Judomaster? Yes, as amazing as it may seem, this is indeed the strange twist this once-heroic character had taken when he showed up again after many years away from regularly published comics in his original role as Judomaster's partner and subsequent role as "Avatar."
