F.O.R.C.E. Files 6: Pointblank
Pointblank makes his first full appearance in this chapter as the team goes after the would-be assassin of their leader. But with his meta-enhanced strength and speed, along with a preternatural aim, he may be more than a match for an entire unit of F.O.R.C.E. members. Though I briefly mentioned him in yesterday's Best Character Ever, Pointblank is an important villain in the Quadrant Universe. While he isn't the most powerful nor the most manipulative, he is one of the most successful assassins and agents in the criminal set. His exploits are legendary over a thirty year career, which make him a threat the team take very seriously.
"Death Watch" also looks at the origins of Legend, including the dark secrets of his creation. As Inch and Cyber fight to keep him alive, the past portions of the story reveal the continued legacy of the infamous King family, already on full display in the first two volumes of Lightweight.
Chapter six of F.O.R.C.E. is now available on Amazon.
