Evolution of a Hero
Criminal for hire, former weapons designer and special agent for the Maggia.
Blacklash is arrogant and confident. He’s not fond of taking orders but has to because of the line of work he’s in. He’s not sociable to those he feels are less competent than he is. He enjoys using his whips and won’t back down from a fight.
Mark Scarlotti was a brilliant young man with a bright future. Graduating with top honors from college and a promising job at Stark International, Scarlotti could have had it all. It all went south, however, when he became friends with the wrong people. Filled with dreams of grandeur, he made some bad deals with hopes of a big payoff. Eventually, Mark worked developing weapons, first for the Maggia, then for himself. He took a more active role in their activities and became the costumed criminal known as Whiplash. His first real test put him up against the invincible Iron Man, but Whiplash could not complete the task of eliminating him. Suffering defeat after defeat at the hands of his armored foe, Scarlotti upgraded his weaponry and took a new alias. He remerged on the crime scene with a new attitude and called himself Blacklash
