Powers and Abilities

Death-Stroke is a master martial artist and skilled with various martial weaponry. His quickness was enough to surprise Spider Woman I, but he wasn’t quick enough to prevent his untimely death when in a contest with villains Cut-throat and Mangler. His so-called “energy blade” was a normal looking knife that could easily slice a steel girder in two.


History

His past was shrouded in mystery. When the Carillon Towers was built in San Francisco, it was constructed with a “quite illegal” inner core which was to serve as the headquarters for “the new crime czar of San Francisco.” Which in time was revealed to be Nguyen Ngun Coy.

When “the Feds” get wise, Death-Stroke and his terminators are brought in to murder those who have learned the truth about Carillon. Before too many people die, Death-Stroke runs afoul of the original Spider Woman and proves no match for her super-strength and powers.

After years of not being heard from (perhaps serving some prison time) he shows up at a death match to gain a position in Red Skull’s organization and combat training from the Taskmaster himself… He lost.


Description

Red bodysuit, full face cowl, gloves, boots; blue sideless tabard and flared shoulders,” V” neck, and “V” shape cut from shoulders to waist (allowing red show through) ; white skull clasps, one each straddling “V” shape on tabard; light red sash around waist; white wristbands.


Personality

Death-Stroke is extremely overconfident, believing his skill far surpasses what it really is.


Quotes

“My name is Death-Stroke ! The men you see are my Terminators. As the names imply, our business is killing.”


DC Universe History

Death-Stroke and his Terminators… hrm ? I wonder if anyone told Slade Wilson? Due to similarities in their costumes, one could construct some kind of connection to Manhunter, Paul Kirk.
