The man who would become the master assassin called Deadline began his life as a small time hitman for one of America’s organised crime families. While details of his upbringing and career are sketchy, his uncanny sense of aim has always made him a formidable foe.
When the alien invaders known as the Dominators unleashed a genebomb over Earth, the hitman who would soon take the name Deadline was a casualty, having his metagene activated. At first he grew extremely ill and thought he would die from the accident. Instead, he recovered and found that his body had bulked up and his skills and reflexes had dramatically improved. His skin also became extremely dense, making him impervious to pain. Topping off these new powers was his ability to phase himself or any object he touched through solid materials. Outfitting himself with high-tech gear, the hitman called himself Deadline and endeavoured to establish himself as America’s premier assassin.
