Powers and Abilities

Slaughter Boy has a large degree of superhuman strength and durability, and is a superior hand-to-hand fighter. He seems to be a well-trained wrestler and brawler.

The Martial Artist is mostly here as an Initiative booster, but might be useful if he’s depowered somehow.


History

Most of the history of this obscure but very 1990s character is unrevealed, though he once was a member of the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation, and was likely expelled for his psychotic brutality. It is quite possible that he gained his powers through the Power Broker process, like many other UCWF wrestlers did. If so he was quite a success, at least in terms of strength and speed.

The psychotic Slaughter Boy made up a complicated, xenophobic story about why he had been barred from the ring – then convinced himself that this story was true. He then started trolling for fights in New York City, murdering foreign tourists and cops.

During one such outing, he clashed with the Ghost Rider (Daniel Ketch) ; although he was physically superior to the Rider, Slaughter Boy was subjected to his opponent’s mystical Penance Stare and was left catatonic.

Slaughter Boy was kept locked up for years, with no documented escape. Eventually, the Initiative government project decided to draft him. He and a number of criminals considered to be disposable were sent to make a quasi-suicide assault to retake the 42 prison, situated in the Negative Zone. None of the operatives were warned of the enemy’s strength, or that the promised backup would only actually arrive if the situation was mostly under control.

The cannon fodder suffered heavy casualties, and Slaughter Boy was apparently brought down by a mass of warriors with melee energy weapons. Whether he survived his grievous wounds is unknown.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

A psychotic brute, bully and probable rapist who will address any problem or even mild inconvenience with lethal force. He likes to show off his strength and destructive abilities, and hates cops and heroes. And foreigners. And pretty much anything, really.

He tends to come up with excuses, even complicated stories, whenever he’s made to look bad. He’ll often rant about his weird conspiracy theory about his exclusion from the UCWF — feel free to add any typical tinfoil-hat details to his rants about this, even if it’s incoherent.


Quotes

“Slaughter Boy ! That’s what they call me, little foreigners !”

“Lookey here ! More boys in blue and their little toy guns. You wanna take me down with those ? You gonna kill me ? C’mon… give it a try !”

“Come on ! Get up ! Fight me ! All I want is a good fight ! I’m a fighter ! I’m the best !”

“They all hated me… feared me… because of my strength ! The foreign investors… they’re the ones who got me thrown out of pro wrestling. Now they come to our country as tourists. Well… they took away my livelihood… took away my life, so… I took their lives ! And now I’ll take yours ! Then everyone will know that… I am Slaughter Boy ! I am strength !”


DC Universe History

Given his obscure nature, he can just be thrown in.
