Kingslayer


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This very minor character appeared once, in a 1978 comic. Published by DC Comics, it wasn’t set in the DC Universe. It was the Super-Friends comics series, capitalising on the success of the Saturday morning cartoon and done in the same style.

Still, it was a E. Nelson Bridwell story with Ramona Fradon art. So there’s that.


Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed
  • Marital Status: Presumed single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: None.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 6’ Weight: 200lbs.
  • Eyes: Unrevealed Hair: Unrevealed


Powers and Abilities

Although he has no super-powers, Kingslayer is nonetheless a dangerous opponent. He is a talented gadgeteer , as well as being handy with weapons of all types.


History

Kingslayer is a high-priced assassin. He specializes in political killings. He prefers to murder his victims with elaborate mechanical booby-traps, but will resort to ordinary weapons (and henchmen) if need be.

His most ambitious assignment to date, an attempt to kill over 100 heads of state who had gathered for a United Nations conference, was thwarted by the Super-Friends.


Description

Kingslayer is a man of average height and build. He wears a purple leotard with a gold emblem of a broken crown on the chest, and green cowl, gloves, trunks, and boots. He also wears an orange belt with various weapons strapped to it.


Personality

For the most part, Kingslayer is cold and calculating, strictly businesslike in his missions. He does seem to relish a good challenge, though. Furthermore, he has a fondness for using elaborate gimmicks for killing when a simple bullet to the head would do the trick.


Quotes

“It is my privilege to earn the money you offer by killing somebody ! I am not concerned with your ambitions !”
