Powers and Abilities

Tenpin is tall and reasonably athletic. More dangerously, he is a superlative juggler who knows how to use his skills in combat.

He prefers to juggle speciality juggling pins looking a bit like bowling pins. These are apparently are coated in a special gel so he can light them on fire. That makes it all look even more spectacular.


See the main article about the Death-Throws.

The Death-Throws have Hawkeye cornered


The Death-Throws juggle almost all the time, even when discussing with somebody else.


Tenpin seems to be a laid-back, slightly flaky dude. He likes action and seems to be as motivated by the thrill of the fight as the money – and quite possibly a desire for fame.

He gives childish nicknames to his opponents (Cap was “Cappy” and Hawkeye “Bow-brain”).


“The name’s Tenpin, Cappy. That’s one word, no hyphen. Wouldn’t want you to misspell it in your memoirs.”

“Long time no see, bow-brain !”
