Hardcore (Earth-616) 1

Hardcore

Early Life

Hardcore was born in the Caribbean island of Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. He became a mercenary, an assassin and expert weapons specialist. [1]

Untouchables

He was hired by Cruz Bushmaster. As an employee of Cruz, Hardcore was responsible for training and supervising the Untouchables. He sent them out on missions on behalf of his criminal overlord. He first came in contact with Luke Cage when the superhero was based in Chicago, also running into Dakota North when attempting to gain information on Cage's past. Hardcore sent in Kickback, Nitro and Tombstone to fight Cage and capture Dakota North. However, Kickback chose this time to attempt a rebellion which proved unsuccessful. Hardcore blew up the Black Hole in Colorado after almost killing Luke Cage.[2]

Some time later, Hardcore held Luke Cage, his father and brother along with Dr. Noah Burnstein prisoner in St. Croix, the Virgin Islands where Bushmaster was based. It was there Hardcore told Cage it was he who had persuaded Mickey Hamilton to work against the hero and oversee the superhuman powers given to his employer, Bushmaster. Hardcore and Luke Cage came to blows and soon after, Hardcore was killed in an explosion when the car he was driving fell into water, caused by the detonation of his own manrikisas.[3]
