Brief History

Rufus T. Hackstabber was a memorable and goofy character whom appeared as a crazed taxi-driver when he drove Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung-Fu to different locations. He kept referring to Shang-Chi as "Chang-Shee". Sometime later he encountered the Defenders, when he became involved in a murder case with the Defenders and two detectives from his hometown, Typhoon and Cutlass. It was during this time Rufus admitted to have a crush on the woman detective named Typhoon. He asked her out, even though he knew she was married. She harshly rejected his offer. Some months later, Rufus again came into contact with some of the Defenders when he drove Hellstrom and Hellcat towards a mystery mansion. Later on, he also came to collect Defenders Beast and Iceman. All of them disliked Rufus for his extreme way of cab-driving and strange comments. Rufus however helped out his newfound 'friends' til the murder-case was solved.


The character strongly resembles comedian Groucho Marx. Hackstabber's name is a play on Rufus T. Firefly, a character that Groucho played during his carreer.
