Powers and Abilities

Hellrazor has explained he was “completely kineto-synthetic” – he can draw on outside energy sources to augment and replenish his strength and stamina.

Apparently the normal environment with the sun, movement, etc. is sufficient to give him inexhaustibility, superhuman strength and a remarkable degree of agility and speed. From the way he phrased it, I guess he cannot go above the levels listed above – more energy just replenishes him.

An important component of his firepower is his bracers. They include razor-sharp talon-like blades, and can fire bursts of knife-shaped metallic blades (where the ammunition comes from is unclear). Hellrazor is a dead shot with those, able to threaten even such high-OV opponents as the Black Panther or Spider-Man.

However, when he found himself out of HPs and disarmed, his confidence completely deflated.

Hellrazor is visibly an aggressive combatant, budgeting his HPs to win through killing in about 6-7 Phases. His more experienced opponents just started Laying Back and keeping their OV high enough to compensate for the HPs Hellrazor was using for AV until he ran dry. He may be immune to fatigue, but not to HP loss !


History

Hellrazor was, through intermediaries, hired by Roxxon Oil as part of their campaign to destabilise Wakanda and obtain access to its famous vibranium reserves. The first part of the operation was to publicly kidnap the director of Agar Ores, a company with an history of abusing Wakandan mineral resources, so he could be executed.

During the kidnapping Hellrazor was disguised as the Black Panther, as Roxxon trusted that the accusations that would result would be much louder than any denial from Wakanda.

Soon after Hellrazor, in his usual costume, showed up at the Wakandan embassy and challenged the Black Panther, calling him a murderer in front of the cameras before shoving him inside to kill him out of sight. However, Spider-Man was also present, and the duo defeated the villain in short order.

Roxxon had never really expected Hellrazor to kill the Panther, but sending him in had given a new bounce to the accusations of murder made against the Black Panther and Wakanda.

Hellrazor likely spent years in prison. Whatever career he might have had was quite obscure, since when he appeared again, nearly a decade after the case chronicled above, he complained nobody knew about him. This second appearance was also his last.

He answered a call for a meeting among C-list supervillains to discuss the menace of the Scourge of the Underworld, who was preying on their ilk. This meeting turned into a death trap, since a Scourge had infiltrated it as a bartender. Hellrazor, like the other villains present, was seemingly killed by the assassin.

If you really want to bring him back, his very vague absorption/replenishment abilities are probably sufficient as an explanation.


Description

Between his first and second appearance, Hellrazor had gained a scar over his right eye. Maybe a prison fight ?


Personality

Hellrazor sees himself as an unstoppable tough guy – in fact I suspect that he’s very impressed by his own stats and thinks nobody could possibly be much tougher and faster than he is. He’s boastful, loud-mouthed and cocksure, but not terribly observant or talented at thinking ahead.

He’s not a low-class thug, though – he seems to be a fairly professional mercenary, delivering a decent and serious level of performance and scrupulously obeying orders.

He seemed to want to develop his rep through flashy assignments involving international politics and other high-profile issues.


Quotes

“Idiot ! My wrist-blades are more than a match for you paltry webbing !”

“In case you didn’t catch it, the name is Hellrazor, Spider-man — but you can call me your executioner !”
