(Sludge#2 (fb)) - As a child he was overweight, wore ill-fitting clothes thanks to his mother and was regularly bullied by others kids. He sometimes wore a Jet-Man costume and even used the moniker for himself.

   He eventually beat up one of his bullies with a Jet-Man toy gun until he begged him to stop.

(Sludge#2 (fb) - BTS) - Bloodstorm became filled with hate and trained to get into peak physical shape. He found his calling as an assassin, a job that allowed him to focus his hatred and live a luxurious lifestyle at the same time. He often pictured his victims as his past tormentors.

(Sludge#2) - Sporting a skull face-painted on his face (basically Punisher's logo) Bloodstorm assassinated a man in his home and beat his head to a bloody pulp after he had already shot him. After finishing his assignment Bloodstorm took his car back to his townhouse and entered the garage through a secret entry hidden behind a self-opening wall. He took a shower before calling his client Mr. Barnett to inform him that his father was dead and payment was due.

   Bloodstorm assassinated a woman for Mr. Cowling, who wanted to make sure that he received a promotion. He also shot and stabbed three security guards, who had heard the gunshot and tried to prevent his escape.

(Sludge#2 - BTS) - Back home Bloodstorm hired a hooker.

(Sludge#2) - Bloodstorm called Cowling to inform him that he was now first in line for a promotion. The hooker arrived and Bloodstorm warned her that he liked to play rough, but she was sure she could handle a few bruises. Remembering the first time he beat up one of his bullies, he brutally beat up the hooker until she begged him to stop. Bloodstorm told her to get dressed and leave while he received a call from John Marcello, who tried to hire him for a surveillance job for a whole week. Bloodstorm didn't agree at first, but changed his mind when Marcello offered him enough money and agreed to another 100 thousand as a completion bonus.

   For five days Bloodstorm surveilled Marcello's hired cop Niall Quinn and a few hired muscles brutalize people and collect money from them, but the killer Bloodstorm was hired to deal with never appeared. On the sixth night on Pier 37 at the Hudson River Quinn and his men tried to collect money from a dock worker, but where attacked by Sludge. Bloodstorm shot a timed exploding arrow at Sludge from the shadows and riddled him with bullets until the delayed explosion took down Sludge. Bloodstorm was standing over Sludge's body.

(Break-Thru#1/Sludge#3) - People, driven mad by the energies sent to Earth by the "Entity on the moon" attacked Bloodstorm, who shot his way through them and fled in his car, leaving behind Quinn and his men to fight for themselves.

(Sludge#3) - Bloodstorm later called Marcello to inform him of Sludge's demise and expected payment.

(Sludge#6) - Marcello hired Bloodstorm again for one night because he was afraid the Dragon Fang's leader Mr. Wong would double-cross him during their meeting. Bloodstorm demanded 150 thousand.

   Bloodstorm watched the meeting between Marcello and Mr. Wong in the Eretz Shalom Cemetery at midnight from a tree. Sludge interrupted the meeting and Marcello believed the creature was working for Wong. Bloodstorm was so angry that something that he had tried to kill had survived that he carelessly jumped out of the tree and was attacked by Wong's spiritual consultant Pong. Bloodstorm was carried into the sky by Pong, who was wearing rocket boots, but shot him in the head and landed in the tree.

(Sludge#7) - Vittorio tried to hire Bloodstorm, who wasn't eager to work for him because he had not received his payments yet from Marcello for the week surveillance and the job the other night. Vittorio agreed to send him a check of 1 million dollars within the next 24 hours, but Bloodstorm wanted cash including the outstanding payments from Marcello. Vittorio agreed to his terms and was going to set up a meeting.

(Sludge#8) - After Marcello's funeral (he got killed by Sludge) Vittorio set up the meeting with Bloodstorm, who had already put on face paint resembling a pumpkin for his next job. Bloodstorm received a suitcase with all the money he was owed, but demanded double to go after Lord Pumpkin and Sludge or the deal was off. Vittorio threatened Bloodstorm, who made sure that Vittorio knew that he had the upper hand because he knew where Vittorio's mother lived and his sister went to school. Bloodstorm took the money and drove off in his car.

   Bloodstorm got ready for the assassination of Lord Pumpkin and put on a pumpkin helmet. He was secretly watched by Lord Pumpkin through his scrying crystal.

(Sludge#8 - BTS) - Bloodstorm bought the address of Lord Pumpkin's hideout at the Majestic Theatre from a dealer called Longhorn for 20 dollars.

(Sludge#8) - Bloodstorm killed two guards at the stage entrance, fought his way through the monstrous Rivermen and finally ended up in the balcony to shoot a seemingly unsuspecting Lord Pumpkin in his throne, but the bullets did nothing against Lord Pumpkin, who had been expecting Bloodstorm's arrival. Pumpkin threatened to reveal Bloodstorm secret identity before destroying the balcony with an energy blast from his mouth. Bloodstorm's helmet got cracked and he had to take it off. He reached for his gun, but his hand was shot several times by Pumpkin's henchboy Pistol. Sludge then grabbed Bloodstorm and shoved Zuke buds in his mouth, warping his mouth to force Bloodstorm to swallow the seeds. Sludge tossed Bloodstorm to the ground and Lord Pumpkin watched as the drug took effect. He didn't want to kill Bloodstorm because he had something else in mind for him.

(Sludge#9) - Bloodstorm was hung up by chains and got larger Zuke buds pushed in his mouth by Lord Pumpkin even though the does he had already received from Sludge were deadly. The Zuke finally kicked in and Bloodstorm started to go mad, but Lord Pumpkin quelled his rage with a mere touch. Bloodstorm collapsed and then told Sludge to take him back to his employer.

   Driven mad by the drug Bloodstorm attacked a meeting with Vittorio and other mobsters and shot them to pieces. Bloodstorm saw them as his old school bullies due to the drug in his system and laughed as Vittorio and his men killed him. Bloodstorm's corpse dropped to the ground and started leaking a deadly gas created by the Zuke buds in his system. Vittorio had the building evacuated and ordered to burn Bloodstorm's body.

Bloodstorm should not be confused with:


It is a car that drives and looks like it was pretty expensive. It was Bloodstorm's usual means of transportation.
