Powers and Abilities

Mangler is a large and skilled brawler, whose strength and resiliency have been enhanced to superhuman levels by the Power Broker treatment. He can easily smash concrete with his bare hands.


History

Mangler III was an enforcer and guard for Doctor Malus when the doctor was working on the Power Broker treatment. He and his partner Bludgeon clashed with an undercover Captain America, who escaped, and were later beaten by Demolition Man wielding Cap’s shield.

After he eventually left Power Broker Inc.’s employ, Mangler had an undocumented criminal career, and managed to be shortlisted for the position of Red Skull’s main henchman – in replacement of Crossbones. The final “interview” turned out to be a free-for-all fight with the other two candidates – Deathstroke and and Cutthroat.

At the end of that fight Mangler was lying on the groud with one of Cutthroat’s knives squarely between his shoulders ; it is unknown whether he survived his wounds.


Description

At first, Mangler looked to be almost 7’ and was a primitive bestial cast to his face ; he later appeared to simply be a musclebound soldier/bodybuilder.


Personality

Bludgeon is a professional enforcer and legbreaker. His schtick is that he’s very articulate, even verbose, and that he has a distinctly European choice of words and fair play attitude.


Quotes

“This fellow fancies himself a jackrabbit, Bludgeon old bean.”

“Excuse me, miss. I’ve finished the diagnostic examination of this employment application, and find myself with some unstructured free time on my hands. You wouldn’t, perchance, have something I might peruse until my personal interview commences ?”
