Telepathy: Deathwatch is an extremely powerful telepath. He must be in contact with his victims and his mental probing causes intense pain.
Death Sense: Deathwatch’s main power is his ability to absorb the life force of dying people and add it to his own. He can use this ability to sense all deaths in a 5 mile radius.
The true origins of the man known as Deathwatch still remains a mystery besides the fact that he is from an extradimensional demonic race known as the Translords. Taking a special interest within humans by draining their dying life force thanks to group of worshippers and servants who sacrificed unwilling victims, Deathwatch eventually built enough strength to enter through the dimensional barrier and into the real world. Rewarding his servants by imbuing them with superhuman powers, these servants would blindly follow their new leader, as some of them would later become major threats themselves known as Snowblind, Hag, and Troll. Deathwatch wanted only one thing, which was death and the life force that any dying victim would give and because of this Deathwatch and his followers started their very own criminal empire. Taking the role as a businessman named Stephen Lord, Deathwatch slowly became a feared crimelord who began climbing the ranks of the criminal underground through means of terrorism and death.
His first known activity occurred as he made his bid as one of the many criminals challenging the mobster boss, Kingpin's, rule of New York City's criminal underground. In so doing, Deathwatch tried to gain canisters, which contained a potent bio-toxin. The canisters wound up in the possession of a minor street gang, and Deathwatch employed the criminal Blackout and a cadre of ninja’s to obtain them.
