Linus Dorfman

Search for 'Linus Dorfman' on Amazon

Linus Dorfman was deranged psychopath who grew up torturing animals and would practice self flagellation as punishment to himself for the things he did. His disturbing tendencies would lead up to one night where he would murder the night time janitor of the Central Park Zoo and attempt to torture a wolverine caged there. His night time activity would draw the attention of mutant hero Wolverine. Linus would attack Wolverine, but back off when the hero would use extract his Adamantium claws. Wolverine would then use his claws to break open the wolverines cage. The animal would chase him off into the park and savagely slash his face.

Somehow, Dorfman would manage to capture the animal and take it back to his New York apartment. There his violent tenancies would escalate to people and he would become a serial killer. When the police would come to arrest him, he would hole himself up in his apartment with a number of hostages. When he would start killing the hostages, the police be forced to take him down. Dorfman would resist arrest, attacking the police savagely, even tearing out an officers throat with his mouth before he would be beaten into submission. The media, especially reporter Trish Tilby would call out on the police brutality, however the police would maintain that such force was necessary due to Dorfman's violent resisting.
