X-Men: Slaymaster may not have lived for a long time. But inarguably, he is one of the deadliest villains that Captain Britain had to face. But why is he considered so dangerous?
You’ll read all about it in detail below!
Who is X-Men: Slaymaster?
Fun fact about Slaymaster he is one of the very few Muslim characters in the Marvel Multiverse. On multiple occasions, he has refused to drink alcohol due to religious obligations.
He is one of the most powerful characters in the entirety of Marvel comics and is known as the world-class assassin! Plus has other powers like telepathy and telekinesis. Slaymaster is good with almost every weapon, but his favorite way of killing people is to shower many needles at them. What a deadly way!
No wonder why he is considered so dangerous and tough to fight with.
The Braddocks are a very influential family in the comics. The twin Braddocks siblings; Brian and Betsy are a compelling and dynamic duo. If you’re not a Marvel Comics fan, then the following paragraph will convince you about their extraordinary powers!
Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock is the super-heroine “Captain Britain.” Although she is so powerful, she still is a side hero to her brother Brian! There is an interesting story of how she had her mind placed into a ninja and how she got connected to the X-men!
Brian Braddock is the other powerful twin and the hero “Captain Britain.” He has had multiple clashes with the Welsh and S.T.R.I.K.E anti-heroes. If we go into his history, it will take a lot of time to cover it, so if you’re a new Marvel Multiverse fan, knowing that he is in charge of law and order in Britain will be more than enough. However, if you wish to know more about the character arch of Brian, then the comics are always available!
The twins have another older brother Jamie Braddock who is equally talented as his siblings.
Braddocks and Slaymaster
Slaymaster has no details of his origin; he goes around the globe and terrorizes people, polishing his skills! Consequently, when Slaymaster reached Britain and tried to do the same, he became Captain Britain’s greatest enemy. And both have a tough time defeating each other. Why? Because Slaymaster and Captain Britain possess extraordinary powers.
But somehow, Captain Britain manages to push Slaymaster out of the yacht where their clash took place. The hero presumed that his enemy is dead, but little did he know that Slaymaster is not that easy to kill.
The villain manages to get out of the water and then decides that from now on, his only goal is to defeat Captain Britain and take his revenge. While he schemes all of this, Captain stays delusional!
There have been many instances in which Slaymaster tried to kill Brian, but all of them proved to be failures. When Betsy replaced Brian as Captain Britain, the villain gets angry at this decision. As a result, he gouges out Betsy’s eyes and turns her blind.
Brian gets furious over this incident, and now he is determined to defeat Slaymaster one and for all. Spoiler alert he actually does! In one clash, Brian crushes Slaymaster’s head with a big stone and sets an example for all the villains trying to attack the Braddocks family.
And this is why X-Men: Slaymaster is Marvel’s deadliest forgotten mutant killer because even though he got defeated, he had an everlasting effect on the Braddocks!
