Powers and Abilities

Smasher is superhumanly strong and tough. However, a world-class martial artist like Daredevil (Matt Murdock) can hurt him with sufficiently precise, powerful strikes.

He is an excellent climber (mostly because he punches and kicks holds into the surface he’s climbing). He also has proven pretty adept with thrown weapons – usually objects lying around.

He’s aware that throwing is his most efficient combat technique, and will use it whenever possible. He’s also found of improvising melee weapons from lamp posts and the like.


Lehr was apparently the second man to be enhanced as a Smasher by Death-Stalker. He was sent after Daredevil to kill him. But he wasn’t as powerful as his predecessor and was defeated by hornhead.

When the police came in, Daredevil told them he wasn’t pressing any charge. No prison could prevent Death-Stalker from finding Smasher V and executing him for his failure, as he was wont to do. The cops told him they would only hold Smasher V for a short time and release him, so he’s presumably still alive.



See illustrations.


Standard dumb street thug. He’s pretty fast and aggressive in his approach, and somewhat overconfident in his sheer power.


“Nobody hurts me ! I’m the Smasher ! I’m invincible ! The Stalker said so !”
