Villain Profile: Black Scorpion

Villain Profile: Black Scorpion -

Cryptic sent out a nice little feature on a specific villain. This profile explores "Black Scorpion.

I traced Black Scorpion’s history back to a mercenary in Nicaragua named Ernesto Rodriguez. Rodriguez hired out for various little wars until he was chased north by the government, at which point he ended up in Mexico. At that point he began hiring himself out for various jobs across the border into the US. It was on one of these missions that his life changed forever.

Rodriguez was leading a recon mission to investigate a hidden laboratory run by Leonard Bowen. Bowen was known throughout scientific circles for being brilliant but unsafe. The mission did not go well at first. Rodriguez and his men were spotted by a sentry. It quickly turned into a bloodbath. Details become sketchy at that point but it seems that when he finally got to the lab itself, Rodriguez discovered Bowen working on some kind of armored suit. He apparently tortured and then killed the scientist. Having ripped most of the secrets of the suit from Bowen, Rodriguez became Black Scorpion.

You can view the full feature, the three screenshots and concept art here.
