Death's-Head (Marvel)(01- Paxton Page)
Real Name: Paxton Page
Search for 'Death's-Head (Marvel)(01- Paxton Page)' on Amazon

Page generated cobalt radiation, projecting it as fireballs or coating his scimitar and bola with it. He had enhanced strength and durability, fighting with a madmanís ferocity. He rode a horse, itís flesh turned transparent by his energies before itís death.

Renowned research scientist Paxton Page perfected the cobalt bomb, but refused to divulge itís dangerous secrets to Congress. Knowing Page had continued his work, the US government sent an agent, Garth, to pose as the Pagesí butler, secretly protecting Page from his enemies. Page dove into his research to erase the traitor stigma but was mutated and driven insane by cobalt radiation. Adopting a costume to match a figure from his daughter, Karenís, childhood nightmares, he became Deathís-Head, attempting to drive his family away. When Karen Page returned home, Deathís-Head tried to drive her off, leading to confrontations with Daredevil, who Paxton overpowered and framed as Deathís-Head. Ultimately, Garth entered Paxtonís lair, followed by Karen and Daredevil. Though Daredevil had determined his true identity, Deathís-Head refused to admit it until his molten radioactive cobalt threatened Karen; knocking Karen and Daredevil aside, Paxton was slain by the molten cobalt.

Deathís-Head was briefly impersonated by Death-Stalker (Phillip Sterling) in a later assault on Daredevil, Karen Page, and Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze/Zarathos).
