History: (Moon Knight II#5)- Gun, Fist and Blade were three female followers of Saduhl Singh. When Saduhl learned that David Morgan and Virgil Morgan, worshippers of the White Cobra, were active in Chicago, he dispatched the three women there to exterminate them before they could perform a sacrifice to the White Cobra which would prolong their immortality.

The three women caught up with Virgil at his office building, and killed his bodyguards. They then asked Virgil where his brother was. He claimed he was out of town and tried to bribe them. Gun responded by shooting him in the head. The Morgans' security guards heard the gunshot, and stormed the room. Fist was killed by their gunfire, and Blade was wounded. Blade sacrificed herself to prevent them from capturing her, and only Gun escaped the building, using ropes to climb down the building.

Gun was confronted by Moon Knight at her hotel room, and attempted to convince him of the righteousness of her cause. Moon Knight was not swayed, so she struck him with a lamp and fled.

Gun returned to the Morgans' building, and came upon David just as he was about to perform the rites to create his elixir to continue to prolong his life. David offered to share it with Gun, but she refused. Moon Knight arrived and prevented Gun from killing David, and defeated both of them. Deprived of his elixir, David aged rapidly into a pile of ash. Gun then realized that if she and her comrades had only kept the Morgans from performing the rites, they would have died without anyone else needing to die. She stole a gun from a policeman and shot herself in the head out of guilt.

Saduhl Singh was the religious leader who commanded Gun, Fist and Blade. Unable to reach the Morgan brothers from India, he dispatched the three women to Chicago to see to their deaths.

--Moon Knight II#5

















Virgil Morgan was the brother of David Morgan, and was a worshipper of the White Cobra. He and David sacrificed young women in order to create an elixir which would prolong their lives for several centuries. This earned them the enmity of Sadhul Singh, who dispatched Gun, Fist and Blade to eliminate them. Virgil was shot to death by Gun.
