WIRED

Real Name: Nathan Chase

Identity/Class: Extra-dimensional (Earth-Amalgam) cyborg

Occupation: Mercenary / assassin-for-hire

Affiliations: The Big Question (Edward Nigma Fisk); Deadeye (Bill Lawton); Lethal (Sergei Minerva)

Enemies: Catsai (Elektra Kyle); Dare (Slade Murdock); Mutant Titans

Known Relatives: none

Aliases: none

Base of Operations: Arkham Tower, New Gotham

First Appearance: Assassins#1 (April, 1996); Mutant Titans#87 (in Amalgam continuity)

Powers/Abilities: Wired is a man-hunter built out of flesh and machine, strung together with "cybernetic cable."  His cybernetic physiology enables him to perform several unique functions, such as producing large spiked blades from his forearm.  Presumably, this physiology also enables him to sustain damage that would kill a normal human being.

History:

(Mutant Titans #87) - The half-man, half-machine known as Wired made his first appearance and presumably faced-off against the Mutant Titans.
 

(Assassins#1 (bts)) - Brought together by corrupt New Gotham mayor the Big Question (Edward Nigma Fisk), Wired and his fellow assassins, Lethal (Sergei Minerva) and Deadeye (Bill Lawton), discovered that they had defeats at the hands of the same women (Dare and Catsai) in common.  Together, Wired, Deadeye, and Lethal figured they could teach their mutual enemies a lesson in respect.  Working for the Big Question made them think that the road to riches was all puzzled out . . .
 

(Assassins #1 ) - "Political Suicide" - While climbing up an Arkham Tower elevator shaft in an attempt to kill the Big Question, Dare (Slade Murdock) and Catsai (Elektra Kyle) were blindsided by Wired, who cut the cable on which they were climbing.  An angry Catsai recovered from the fall and sent Wired crashing through a metal door, impaling him on his own weapon and leaving him for dead.

In case you're confused, Amalgam Comics didn't really exist beyond those seen in the few DC/Marvel cross-over. The titles you don't recognize are amalgams of similar Marvel and DC comics--Snood.

Amalgam Universe

Earth-Amalgam

MUTANT TITANS is an amalgam of Marvel's NEW MUTANTS (Marvel's Cable debuted in NEW MUTANTS#87) and DC's TEEN TITANS.
 

Although Wired, Deadeye, and Lethal have had long histories separately, ASSASSINS#1 marked the first time that they teamed-up to give a little trouble back to the source.

Due to his cybernetic physiology, it is unlikely that Wired actually died when he was impaled by his own weapon in ASSASSINS #1.

CLARIFICATIONS:

Also assume that the Amalgam characters have no other connection to any others than whom they are Amalgamated, unless specifically mentioned.

Wired is an amalgam of:

            Cable of Earth-616, Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, @ New Mutants (vol. I)#87

            Manhunter of the mainstream DC Universe, Chase Lawler, @ Manhunter (vol. II)#0
 

No known connections to, and not to be confused with:

            Niles Cable, founder of the X-Patrol, @ X-Patrol#1
