A genius inventor, Mordillo has created all sorts of robot assassins and death traps.
Death-Hand: The Death-Hand is a glove created by Mordillo that can shoot fire from its fingers, it also has the ability to shoot a compression dart from the middle finger by pressing a button.
In the relatively recent past, the man who would become Mordillo was an agent of the British intelligence organization MI-6, serving alongside Clive Reston and Leiko Wu, among others. At the time, he was the lover of Leiko Wu, after she left Reston for him. At some point, his sanity began to slip away from him, and he developed the identity of the assassin Mordillo. Mordillo established an island base, and performed all of his transactions from that remote location, so that no one ever saw his face. None knew that Bretnor was Mordillo.
Mordillo was hired to assassinate Carlton Velcro, but before he could do so, Velcro died in a conflict against Shang-Chi and several agents of MI-6. Furious that he had lost the million dollars that that assassination would have gotten him, Mordillo decided to take revenge against Chi.
