Powers and Abilities

Battleaxe is a big, strong guy in a suit of armor. He’s good with an axe.


He appeared in “The Hungry Battleaxe”, which was in Daredevil #163, among other places. Iron Man’s helmet picks up a radio report that an intruder is breaking in to the uranium vaults. Arriving there, shellhead sees a downed guard who warns, “He called himself Battleaxe, Iron Man. He’s big, mean and hungry.” At that moment, Battleaxe comes bursting through the wall.

Iron Man uses his boot-jets to dodge the axe blow, and stumbles onto a clue, “Wait ! What did that guard say ? He’s big, mean and hungry ! Maybe that’s the clue !”. Lobbing some Hostess Fruit Pies at Battleaxe ends the fight.

Iron Man even shares some with the vault guard, who says “You don’t have to be hungry to enjoy this light, tender crust”. Battleaxe forgets all about the uranium, content with the goodness of Hostess Fruit Pies.


Battleaxe wears a suit of pretty typical-looking silver knight’s armor. The helmet covers half his face, and has a long, flowing orange plume. He carries a large axe.


He’s big, mean and hungry.
