Biography

Daredevil

Bullseye was hired by the Kingpin to kill Nikolas Natchios. Bullseye kills Natchios with Daredevil's billy club, causing Elektra to believe Daredevil killed her father. Bullseye himself begins to perceive Daredevil a personal challenge to his skills, because he is the only target he has ever missed.

Later, Elektra attacks Daredevil, seeking revenge, but soon realizes Bullseye killed her father. Elektra and Bullseye battle, but he slits her throat with a playing card, deals with more injuries to her and then stabs her with one of her sai, while impaling her, he give a kiss by biting down on her lower lip and her heart stops.

Bullseye chases Daredevil to a church, and they battle until Daredevil maneuvers Bullseye's hands to be shot by a S.W.A.T. sniper, leaving him with wounds resembling stigmata. With Bullseye wounded, Daredevil grabs him and throws him out of a window, crashing onto the hood of Ben Urich's car. A later scene shows him hospitalized but still able to fling a hypodermic needle with enough force and accuracy to impale a fly that angrily annoyed him.

Abilities

  • Master Marksman: Bullseye is a highly skilled marksman, to the point that anything he throws becomes a deadly projectile weapon. He claims to have never missed, shown by him always hitting his intended target or targets even when riding on a motorcycle or ricocheting his throw. The only exception is Daredevil; due to the latter's superhuman senses and radar sense.
    • Weapons Proficiency: Bullseye's ability to throw any object with lethal force gives him a level of proficiency and improvisation of weapons. He is able to throw his shurikens, paperclips, a pen, pencils, glass shards, a church offering dish, a playing card, Daredevil's billy club, Elektra's sai, a syringe, and even a peanut. He used Elektra's sai to kill her, used a pipe organ piece to fight Daredevil, and used a broken candelabra as a makeshift spear.
  • Master Martial Artist: Bullseye is also a highly skilled martial artist. His fighting style seems to be comprised of Boxing, Karate, Krav Maga, Wing Chun, and Taekwondo. He was able to defeat Elektra in hand to hand combat, even killing her with her own sai. He was able to fight Daredevil, though the latter was wounded at the time and Bullseye had to rely on his marksmanship and dirty tactics to gain the upper hand.
  • Master Acrobat: Bullseye is a highly agile individual. He can stand on top of a moving motorcycle, jump down to another building roof, jump up onto a pipe organ, balance on top of a fallen pipe, and lift himself up to a church window and kick the glass pain.
  • Gifted Intellect: Bullseye is a smart individual, despite his insanity. He is able to use any object in his hand as a thrown weapon, intercepted Nikolas Natchios in his limo, stole Daredevil's billy club while he kicked him, tracked down Elektra, followed Daredevil to a church, and was able to deduce Daredevil's weakness to overwhelmingly loud sounds.
