During a 1983/84 adventure, the Black Widow (Natalia Romanova) ran into a cadre of stock killers straight from a B-list action movie.

Powers and Abilities

“Deadshot” Darrance is a highly skilled big game hunter who turned his talent to assassination.

He’s a decent tracker, a patient hunter and a skilled sniper.


Darrance was part of a group of assassins from all over the world. These had assembled by Damon Dran, the “indestructible man”, to capture the Black Widow and destroy S.H.I.E.L.D.

Although they briefly managed to capture her, she defeated them all, except for the Iron Maiden.


See illustration.


Darrance speaks in long sentences with an extensive vocabulary and no contractions. Since Dran’s killer were an over-the-top collection of ethnic clichés, he presumably is British.

Like some big game hunters, he’s in for the thrill of the kill rather than the hunt itself.

He disliked just having to capture the Widow, and is more at ease with straight assassination.


“As much as I would like the head of the world’s foremost secret agent on my trophy wall, I am aware of the prohibiting factors.”

DC Universe History

While he’s quite obscure, there’s already a Deadshot in the DCU. And even with that minor obstacle asides he looks strangely like a twisted Green Arrow.
