One of the world's most feared and respected assassins, the enigmatic killer known simply as "Bullseye" has established a reputation among heroes and villains alike as an unrepentant, homicidal maniac with an insatiable appetite for mayhem. Possessing the uncanny ability to turn any object into a deadly projectile, the masked sadist has been known to kill his targets with everything from throwing knives to playing cards, making him a perennial favorite among New York's most powerful crime bosses -- for the right price, of course.

Not surprisingly, Bullseye is a massive egotist when it comes to his abilities and profession. This isn't someone who thinks he's one of the best -- he IS the best at what he does, and will go toe-to-toe with anyone who thinks they do it better than he can. He's a perfectionist who considers what he does an art --- perhaps the worst combo you can get when it comes to an assassin --- and will go out of his way to prove it to you and anyone watching that there's no one better at killing than him.
Due to his inherent narcissism, Bullseye refuses to take responsibility when things go inevitably wrong, and is quick to blame others for his own shortcomings. Add to that an unhealthy self-image mixed with his sadistic nature, and you get a truly volatile man bubbling under his ice- cold exterior. A joke at his expense could lead to a playing card in your throat. Professional rivalries could turn into bloody feuds. And fights with heroes who have foiled him, or even worse --- made him miss --- can turn into lifelong vendettas where the only ending is certain death for one of you
A true psychopath, Bullseye possesses zero empathy for the people around him, and any sort of conscience to speak of is virtually non-existent. In his mind, you're either dollar signs or a personal project, but perhaps what makes him even more frightening is how *high-functioning* of a psychopath he actually is. This isn't a man who cackles wildly into the air before blowing up a bank. This is a calculated, highly-intelligent predator -- one whose boorish attitude can be flipped to an undeniable charm in less than a second, making him infinitely more dangerous to anyone unlucky enough to end up on his bad side.
There's no two ways about it --- violence is a language that Bullseye speaks very, very fluently. And while some supervillains might consider brute force as a mere tactic to achieve their goals, Bullseye sees it as not just necessary, but downright essential. In fact, some in the field have said that the most joyful they've ever seen the typical curmudgeon is when he's killing a mark or torturing vigilantes for his own amusement. In short? Bullseye's the kid you knew growing up who laughed way too much ripping the wings off a fly. Now, as an adult? You're the fly. And your wings are everyone you love.
The inspiration behind his mercenary codename, Bulleye's almost supernatural ability to throw any object with lethal precision is legendary among heroes and villains, alike. In scientific terms, Bullseye possesses a hypercognitive brain that allows him to make highly-complex calculations regarding geometry and physics in a split-second. This, combined with his exceptional arm strength and naturally perfect hand-eye coordination, makes him just as, if not more, dangerous than some of his superpowered peers. In combat, Bullseye's been known to ricochet objects off walls, throw weapons over vast distances at frightening velocities, and turn something as simple as a paper plane into a viable murder weapon. In short, he is an unpredictable force of nature when he has anything in his hands, making him a formidable killer in virtually any situation.
A natural athlete, Bullseye possesses an Olympic-level physique that enables him to accomplish some truly spectacular feats despite not having any powers. Sacrificing raw strength for superior agility and mobility, Bullseye has been able to keep up with even the most nimble heroes in regards to raw athleticism.
Though it's rumored he learned much of his close-quarters fighting skills in the military, the sheer savagery that Bullseye displays when wielding knives, swords, or other edged weapons suggests a sheer, natural affinity. When not engaged in pure fisticuffs, Bullseye will often lead with one of his trusty knives, looking for a quick stab to the heart or an efficient slice to the throat to dispatch a would-be dispatcher.
While it's not often used in his line of covert wetwork, a time may come when an explosion is necessary to take out a target (or dozen). Largely self-taught when it comes to plastic explosives and the like, Bullseye has occasionally needed to craft and utilize bombs when the situation calls for it.
Despite his proclivity for thrown weapons, Bullseye's pinpoint accuracy also lends itself to other forms of ranged weaponry. Occasionally wielding conventional firearms like handguns, machine guns, or sniper rifles, Bullseye has also shown incredibly proficiency with bows and crossbows, as well. Though he considers these means of murder somewhat boring and superficial, they are no doubt an invaluable collection of skills for his repertoire.
A cold-blooded sadist with a penchant for torture and intimidation, Bullseye derives unimaginable pleasure from hurting others. So, when someone happens to have information that Bullseye needs to extract, the masked assassin has no qualms about doing what must be done (and perhaps a little extra) to make sure he gets what he needs. Whether it's carving up a victim's flesh, burning them with fire, or hurting a loved one right in front of their eyes, it's the sheer destruction of that person's will that truly makes Bullseye feel alive.
While his combat prowess is what he's known for, true fans of Bullseye will tell you about his obsessive-compulsive tendencies regarding the studying of his targets. A predator in every sense of the word, Bullseye has been known to observe his potential kills for day, weeks, if not months, in order to get an idea of their routines, relationships, and abilities. This mental advantage is often what makes the biggest difference should he ever have to engage with them in one-on-one combat.
Though his reputation with projectile weapons is his calling card, Bullseye has mastered several different martial arts in order to be effective at close-quarters combat. Able to hold his own against some of New York's best hand-to-hand fighters, Bullseye's proficiency with muay thai, tae kwon do, and krav maga makes him a nightmare to anyone who dares to square up, mano a mano.
Extremely knowledgeable of human biology and psychology, Bullseye is one of the most cerebral hired killers in the business. While his expertise in pressure points, bone structure, and physiology makes him the go-to guy when someone needs to be taken out in a particular fashion, physically, it's how he approaches each kill that makes him so deadly and efficient. Be it a sneaky cloak-and-dagger operation in the middle of a crowded room, to a toothpick flicked straight through a window from a building across the street, Bullseye has shown a wealth of cleverness, patience, and creativity when it comes to killing his targets -- so much so that he considers himself an artist at his chosen profession.
When operating in the field, Bullseye employs a black, lightweight bodysuit and mask that are reinforced with ceramic plates and a durable kevlar weave. Optimized for mobility, they can withstand a surprising amount of damage from most conventional firearms, knives, and hand-to-hand combat, but possess several weak points that could easily be exploited by more discerning opponents.
With all the contacts Bullseye has made over the last several years, the man with a target on his forehead is anything but in regards to some of the real shot-callers in New York City. Because of his numerous ties with these people and groups, Bullseye has amassed a rather extensive network of fences, mercenaries, and fellow assassins -- not to mention crooked lawyers, corrupt law officials, blackmailed politicians, and anyone else that might be under the thumb of any of his current "employers." Should things ever go south for him, professionally, Bullseye is confident he'll be able to snake his way out -- just like any real survivor should.
Considering how simple Bullseye's life is, he's relatively wealthy for someone his age. Wetwork is expensive, after all, and to those with the money who can afford the best, Bullseye's reputation allows him to charge at a premium. Employed rather consistently by some of the biggest names in crime over the last several years, Bullseye is now in a position where he's more than financially stable for at least a few lifetimes -- as long as those high-profile contracts continue to keep rolling in.
For those in his line of work, there's never a place he can truly consider "home." For this reason, Bullseye's first major financial decisions went to buying small patches of real estate -- both on and off the grid -- to serve as safehouses. Not only are they dotted around New York so he can always lay low when the heat's on, but they also all contain caches of weapons, money, and equipment to ensure he can literally fight another day.
Tools of the Trade:
An assassin should never be without his weapons, and Bullseye has everything he needs in spades. A noted lover of blades, Bullseye possesses an extremely impressive array of knives on his belt and boots, along with a multitude of equipment pouches that house everything from small explosives, to poison darts, to those trusty shurikens everyone knows and loves. When a bullet is on the menu for a job, however, Bullseye carries a 9mm Beretta on his right leg, but will go to one of his safehouses and access his extensive military-grade gun collection when more firepower is needed.
Bullseye is a lone wolf by nature, and while many would chalk it up to other assassins flat-out refusing to work with a full-blown psychopath, the fact of the matter is that Bullseye would never consider doing it in the first place. As arrogant and egotistical a bastard as you'll ever meet, Bullseye believes he is the best in the world at what he does, so while his cockiness is a huge factor in deterring others from working with him, it's his stubborn unwillingness to play well with others that thrusts him into situations where he's in way over his head.
Make no mistake about it, it takes a certain amount of crazy to make someone a killer, and it takes even more of that craziness to make one of the most fearsome and well-known killers in the business. That said, Bullseye's unrelenting appetite for death and destruction has made him an incredibly high-profile target for law enforcement and some of the world's most powerful heroes. Because of this notoriety, Bullseye cannot afford to be in the public eye for long or make any sort of mistake on the job, as the bounty on his head is as big as the list of heroes who want to see him in jail or six-feet under.
No doubt intertwined with his massive ego, Bullseye is a self-admitted perfectionist and has absolutely no patience for anyone or anything that could besmirch his reputation. That said, Bullseye is incredibly meticulous about details to the point where even the simplest mistake can tear his world asunder. Someone who bases their entire life on hitting targets can be manipulated quite easily by someone who's shrewd enough to pick up on it, and -- as long as they know what buttons to push -- can turn it to their advantage.
