Powers and Abilities

Deathcard is an excellent sniper and assassin. His rifle normally only has one bullet in it, for one bullet is all he needs.

In close combat, his skill and speed are quite surprising. And he packs a handgun for when he’s outmatched.


History

Deathcard is a bounty hunter specialized in those “dead or alive” bounties. He concentrates on the “dead” part.

His normal modus operandi is to snipe his targets with a bullet decorated with an ace of spades symbol. He usually leaves an ace of spades card behind him.

in 1994, Deathcard began to shadow Barb Wire in order to steal bounties from her. When he was sent after Hurricane Max, Barb Wire outmaneuvered and cornered him. He surprised her with his speed in hand to hand combat, but Hurricane Max made the building they were in collapse. Deathcard disappeared in the rubble.
