The Hitman wiki last edited by Malhavok on 04/07/13 03:27PM View full history

Back during the Viet Nam War, Burt Kenyon saved the life of Frank Castle, who would later go on to become the Punisher. Kenyon told Castle he would owe him a life one day.

Burt Kenyon is a costumed mercenary who goes by the name Hitman. He tried to assassinate Spiderman and failed. Soon after the Punisher began to hunt him down. In a rooftop battle where the Hitman was trying to kill J. Jonah Jameson, he was shot by the Punisher. As he clung to the Statue of Liberty for dear life, the Hitman begged the Punisher to save him. With only enough to time to save Spider-Man and Jameson or the Hitman, Punisher chose to save Spidey and JJ. He recalled how Kenyon had once said he would owe him a life, which Castle repaid in full and then some: He not only saved one life, but two.

Suicide Run

After the Punisher was seemingly killed during the story arc Suicide Run, numerous copycat vigilante's surfaced, Hitman was among them. He continued to be a killer for hire but wore a costume similar to the Punishers, one key difference was that he wore a mask with a skull on it similar to the one on the Punisher's shirt. Hitman stopped wearing his new costume shortly after the Punisher resurfaced, probably a good decision.

He traditionally uses an m1911. He has been drawn using a number of fictional superguns. He has great skill on a motorbike.
