Malevolent March: Day 10

For the month of March, I'm going to try something new for the blog, so every day I am going to spotlight a different villain from comic books, movies, TV, etc. It's mostly going to be my all-time favorite villains, with some crazy random ones thrown in there for good measure, so check back every day to see the newest villain in Malevolent March!

If you just started reading comic books in the last year or so, then you would think that the Dark Avenger currently known as Hawkeye was the biggest pushover/punching bag in all of the Marvel Universe. But once, a long time ago it feels like, that man was once the most feared and badass assassain, the right hand man to the Kingpin back when that name actually meant something. Today's villain is one of my all-time favorites, Bullseye!


Background: A sick, twisted, and psychotic sociopath. Bullseye only takes delight in causing pain in others, with the main source of his fixation usually being Daredevil. Bullseye has almost superhuman aim and can turn ordinary objects like playing cards, paper clips and pecils into lethal weapons. Bullseye was the chief assassain for the Kingpin before he was sent to prison by Daredevil and was replaced by Elektra. After Bullseye escaped, he got his revenge on Elektra for taking his place (shown below) in one of the most iconic showdowns in comic book history. Bullseye would kill another one of Daredevil's girlfriends in Kevin Smith's Guardian Devil storyarc, when he impaled Karen Page with one of DD's billy clubs. Daredevil did eventually get him back, breaking Bullseye's back and shattering a good number of his bones, but Bullseye was outfitted with Adamantium grafted onto most of his bones, making him an even more dangerous and unstoppable force. Bullseye is currently taking orders from Osborn and getting beaten up every week as a Dark Avenger, but soon Osborn will be out and my boy Bullseye will go back to being a force to be feared once again.

Great Bullseye Moments
