First Appearance: Slapstick#1 (November, 1992)

Powers/Abilities: Overkiller didn't have any superhuman powers, but he owned an extensive arsenal of weapons and had access to some mutant detecting devices.

History: (Slapstick#2 (fb)) - The man who would become Overkiller was watching Wheel of Fortune when it was interrupted by a news report about an X-Men mission in Dallas. Never seeing the end of that episode, the man became Overkiller: Mutant Murderizer in the hopes of killing mutants as revenge.

(Slapstick#1) - Overkiller was driving on a New Jersey highway when his mutant detector picked up the existance of a mutant in the town of Plainview and made his way there finally going to get his vengeance.

(Slapstick#2) - Overkiller used his mutant detecting equipment to track the mutant to a mall. There, he found Slapstick terrorizing small children and assumed he was the mutant. He attacked Slapstick, not listening to his claims that he wasn't a mutant. The two had a highly destructive fight through the mall which ended when Slapstick kissed Overkiller on the nose. Afraid of getting mutant cooties, Overkiller was distracted and Slapstick knocked him out. Overkiller was then webbed up by Spider-Man, who left him for authorities.

Comments: Created by Len Kaminsky, James Fry III and Terry Austin

The X-Men mission in Dallas was the one from Uncanny X-Men#227, in which the team was apparently killed.

The actual mutant that Overkiller detected was Oliver Denton -- it was his birthday party that Slapstick disrupted.
