2007-08-08 21:13:47 misterpace Bio Justine claims to be the daughter of industrialist and super villain financier Justin Hammer. Despite being the daughter of one of the richest men in the world Justine's life was not one of privilege. Justin never approved of his daughter and Justine was always trying to prove her worthiness. Justine eventually decided to follow in her fathers footsteps and use the supervillain community to accumulate power for herself. Shortly after the Avengers and the Fantastic Four seemingly died in battle with Onslaught, Justine donned the costume and name of the Crimson Cowl, an identity once used by Ultron, and like Ultron, she formed a new group of super villains called the Masters of Evil. Working for HYDRA, they hoped to win the favor of the New York crime families. All of this enraged the members of the new superhero team the Thunderbolts because they were actually another faction of the Masters of Evil led by Baron Zemo aka Citizen V. Helmut Zemo's father Heinrich was the original founder of the Masters of Evil and Helmut himself had once led the Masters in their siege on Avengers mansion. As such the legacy of the Masters was important to Helmut and it angered him to see them now reduced to being hired mercenaries. When the Thunderbolts faced the Masters of Evil in battle she and her team escaped due to the blinding flash that accompanies the Crimson Cowl's teleportation effect. When next they fought Crimson Cowl escaped again. After the Thunderbolts had turned on Zemo and Techno, they found themselves fugitives hated by heroes and villains alike. The Crimson Cowl saw this as an opportunity to induct the remaining Bolts into her Masters of Evil. She sent Cyclone to bait the Thunderbolts into walking into an ambush. After defeating the tbolts she made her proposal" Join her and enjoy all the amenities that come with being in her organization or defy her and she would tell all of the Thunderbolts enemies how to find them. The Thunderbolts were given time to think over the situation but in the end decided they would rather take down the Crimson Cowl instead. When next they fought, it looked like the Crimson Cowl had won until Hawkeye disguised as Dreadknight saved the team. Hawkeye offered to become the new Thunderbolts leader and one of his first actions as leader was to promise the media the capture of the Masters of Evil. The Masters began a plan to use a weather machine to blackmail world leaders for a billion dollars. The Cowl's numbers had grown from 6 members to 25. Realizing they were outnumbered Hawkeye decided to use Moonstone and her reputation as a traitor to infiltrate the Masters. Moonstone was tempted to side with the Masters for real but eventually decided against it and took the Cowl down instead. Moonstone unmasked the Crimson Cowl and the Thunderbolts were shocked to find the Cowl was Dallas Riordan their former liasion to the office of the New York city mayor. In reality, Dallas Riordan was actually the new Citizen V. She had been knocked unconscious when she began to interfere with the Cowl's plans for the weather machine. At the last moment Justine had teleported out of her costume and placed Dallas into it. Dallas didn't tell the Thunderbolts the truth because she was still bitter about being fired as the mayor's liasion because of the Thunderbolts deception as heroes. Eventually Dallas was rescued from jail by her team the V-Battalion. Eventually Dallas parted company with the V Battalion after they ordered her to assassinate Henry Gyrich and she refused. Dallas came back to America to get aid from the Thunderbolts. During a battle between the V Battalion and the Thunderbolts the Crimson Cowl had Dallas teleported to her hideout which was on the border of Symkaria and Latveria. Dallas was briefly held prisoner but soon escaped. She and Justine fought a long battle that ended with Dallas falling off a bridge which left her paralyzed. Eventually the Crimson Cowl created a new Masters of Evil. Hawkeye, Songbird and Plantman defeated most of them and convinced several of them that the Crimson Cowl would kill them with a bio-toxin Justine's father had surreptitiously placed in the majority of super villains he had employeed over the years. Hawkeye inducted several of these Masters into the Thunderbolts. The Crimson Cowl was eventually defeated by Skein who used her powers to deconstruct Justine's costume. Justine recently appeared in Civil War Front Line #9 as part of a crew alongside Razor Fist and Diamondhead trying escape the superhuman prison, the Raft. She teleports to the security center, knocking out both guards and releases all the prisoners. Razor Fist, holding Robbie Baldwin as a hostage/human shield, cuts Baldwin which releases his kinetic energy rendering most of the prisoners unconscious, maimed or possibly dead. Justine is found by guards to be knocked out cold. Justin Hammer was born in Surrey, England. A rival of industrialist Anthony Stark (Iron Man), Hammer invented a device called the hypersonic scan transmitter, which allowed him to take control of Iron Man's armor. Angered that he had lost a lucrative bid to Stark International, Hammer took control of Iron Man's armor and forced him to kill an ambassador. Stark cleared his name and destroyed the control device, but had found a new enemy in Hammer. For a time, Hammer frequently hired the villain group known as the Death Squad in an attempt to kill both Stark and Iron Man, but fired the group after they constantly failed. Hammer later had Stark's Iron Man technology stolen by the Spymaster and sold it to a number of superhumans who wore powered armor - including, among others, the Stiltman, the Raiders, the Mauler, the Beetle and even Crimson Dynamo and the Titanium Man. Iron Man started a small war to disable the Stark-based technology in the suits in question, going so far as to also disable sanctioned technology in the armor of SHIELD´S Mandroids and the Vault´s Guardsmen, leading him into conflict with The Captain and the his fellow Avengers. In short, Justin Hammer´s greed led to the first Armor War. It was revealed, years later, that Justin Hammer had obtained Stane International after the death of its chairman, causing problems for Tony Stark through his old company, which even led to a confrontation between Iron Man and the Masters of Silence. Even when he was forced to sell it to Stark for the sum of one dollar, he had the last laugh, when all the shady dealings and irresponsible, or even criminal actions of Stane International came back to bite Tony later. Much later, after Justin Hammer had been diagnosed with an incurable illness, he decided he did not want to die before destroying Tony Stark. Hammer infected Stark's bloodstream with mood-altering nanites that made Stark irrational and temperamental. In a final confrontation between Iron Man and Hammer on Hammer's own space station, Hammer was accidentally frozen in a block of ice and lost in space. Hammer industries kept running, long enough for employees to forget exactly what happened to Justin (Of course, they might never have been in the know). He is the father of Justine Hammer aka (Crimson Cowl), who led the incarnation of the Masters of Evil that fought the Thunderbolts.
