The Manx was a hired killer for the mob, who was betrayed by his own
"family." Although federal authorities were unable to make a
murder charge stick, they were able to put him away for several years on minor
charges. During his years in prison, The Manx made contacts, learned
important information about various criminal operations, and plotted his
revenge against the family that betrayed him. Now that he is out, he is
prepared to make good on his plans to get his revenge and consolidate all
organized crime into one fearsome network. He still takes an occasional
job as an assassin or mercenary, in order to make ends meet. He has
found that his identity as The Manx helps to inspire fear and protect his
identity. The hero known as The Green Mask has a scar on the left side
of his face from battling The Manx.
Equipment and Abilities:
The Manx is an extremely skilled assassin. He generally uses a grapping
hook to scale buildings, and then he waits in the shadows for his
targets. He has razor sharp claws on his fingertips that can be used to
distract an opponent with minor injuries, but he uses the "claw"
blade on his gauntlet to finish his targets, usually by slashing their
throats. The Manx uses stealth to gain proximity on his opponents, and
if he chooses to reveal himself, it is because he is too fast and too skilled
to be stopped, even if his opponent is armed with a gun.
