Criminal Underworld


Painkiller was high-level mob enforcer loaned to the Brothers Who Rule, a gang in the Brick City. The BWR was getting hammered by Black Lightning and needed Painkiller to stop him. After observing Black Lighting for a while to get familiar with his modus operandi, Painkiller developed a plan to kill Black Lightning and humiliate the local police. Painkiller set up a fake crack house with minimal drugs and a few expendable BWR youths. His plan was to lure Black Lightning in and call in the cops; in the ensuing fracas Black Lighting would be killed and the youths would be shot down as well, smearing the cops as baby-killers.

Painkiller’s plan did not go down as he had hoped. Black Lightning’s abilities gave him some small protection from Painkiller’s powers and Lightning’s quick thinking averted a police massacre. Lightning then faced Painkiller down man-to-man and a brutal feedback loop between their respective powers seriously injured Painkiller. The leader of the Brothers Who Rule later proclaimed Painkiller had been murdered, but given his previous exaggerated propaganda, it is quite possible Painkiller was simply incapacitated and shipped off to a metahuman holding facility such as Belle Reve.
