Search for 'Manslaughter' on Amazon

Manslaughter has limited telepathic powers that enable him to perceive the functions and current activity of the nervous systems of other people. He uses this ability to influence other’s peripheral vision and hearing, effectively making himself invisible unless looked at straight on. He has demonstrated the ability to transfer emotions and pain through psychic links. Manslaughter shares a form ("host body") with Roger Loomis, whose form he controls almost all the time. Manslaughter has demonstrated impressive skills with electronics, laying traps, with various types of weapons, and is also very agile. Oh, and he’s stark-raving mad.

Manslaughter is a mutant or mutate supervillain in the Marvel Comics universe. A killer by trade and a psychopath by nature, he has fought the Defenders,[1] and later briefly joined their ranks. He has minor psionic talents, notably the ability to blot out his presence from a person's peripheral senses, completely preventing him from being noticed him as long as he stays out of direct sight and moves stealthfully. As his name implies, Manslaughter's obsession is murder, which he views as both art and science. He enjoys studying his targets so that he can devise exotic, tailor-made methods of execution. Using his psionic abilities he can safely stalk his prey while remaining within a very close proximity (even a few feet), and reveals his presence once it's too late for his victims to escape.
