(Defenders III#3) - The Royal Sadist was put in charge of torturing Dormammu’s captives in the Dark Dimension. He received a memo that two outworlders, Dr. Strange and Sub-Mariner, were to receive Class B torturer, and had to deal with guards who’d had their tongues removed, frustrated by their inability to talk or write. He notice that Sub-Mariner was looking very weak and looked for ways to keep him alive, as the Sadist himself would be fodder for the Mindless Ones if a prisoner died on his watch. Dr. Strange had the audacity to suggest giving the Sub-Mariner water, but chose to listen when he considered his options. The water enhanced the Sub-Mariner’s strength, allowing him to escape and free Strange. What became of the Royal Sadist is unknown.
