Commedia Dell'Morte translated The Comedy of Death are a group of assassins from Europe dressed as "stock characters" from classical opera. The group is led by Pagliacci
and also consist of Mister Punch
, La Signora
and Captain Scaramouche
. They claim to be Europe's greatest assassins and they come to New York City in search of one of their members named Columbina. This group competed with a mercenary known as Crime-Buster
for the same contract on a Camorra mafia informant when he had kidnapped Columbina and brought her to the states. Crime-Buster is later found dead in his apartment and the Comedy of Death confront the new Power Man
after he leaves the apartment of the dead mercenary. Iron Fist
comes to the aid of his partner and a brief scuffle occurs. Pagliacci tells Iron Fist that he will not leave the country without his beloved Columbina before escaping from the police. El Aguila
would see Danny Rand
during a meeting and informed him that the Commedia Dell'Morte are quite renowned on the other side of the Atlantic and he fought them to a standstill in Grenada before he lost his mutant powers.
Commedia Dell'Morte was created by Fred Van Lente
and Wellington Alves
in 2011 and first appeared in Power Man and Iron Fist
