(DD#149) - Death-Stalker sent the Smasher to kill Daredevil. Hornhead tried to convince the Smasher to get as far away from Death-Stalker as possible, because Death-Stalker would kill him as soon as he no longer had any need for me. Smasher was convinced he would be rewarded if he could succeed. The two fought for a short time until Daredevil abandoned the pointless struggle. The Smasher again tracked down Daredevil, with the aid of the Death-Stalker's agents, and cornered him in an alley. Smasher picked up a dumpster with which to crush him, and Daredevil jumped up and punched and kicked him a few times as he held the dumpster, causing him to drop it on himself. Daredevil told the police not to arrest the unconscious Smasher, because Death-Stalker would kill him in prison. Instead, they just let him lay there with a dumpster on his head.

Comments: Created by Jim Shooter and Carmine Infantino.

Slim pickins' in the image department.

According to the Smasher himself, prior to his mutation, he "was nothing--a nobody..."
After gaining the power...he wasn't a whole lot more.

Smasher's real name was revealed in Death-Stalker's profile in OHotMU Update 2010#4.
