First Appearance: Amazing Adventures II#19 (July, 1973)
Powers/Abilities: The Slasher appeared to be about ten feet tall and likely had some degree of superhuman strength. Its right arm was replaced with a cybernetic limb. It was ill-prepared for a savage combatant such as Killraven.
(Amazing Adventures II#19 (fb) - BTS) - The Slasher was allegedly the Martian Masters' first experiment in prosthetics. He served as one of their gladiators, battling for the entertainment of the Masters.
(Amazing Adventures II#19) - After Killraven was captured by the Siren Skarlet and brought into the Arena, a Martian Master unleashed the Slasher against him. However, Killraven broke free and dropped the Slasher in three blows.
Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Howard Chaykin, and Frank McLaughlin.
The Slasher had blue skin and spoke an inhuman language, but it is presumably either a normal, mutant, or mutate human that they experimented on. It is unknown whether they did more than place the robotic arm.
