Real Name: Unrevealed
Identity/Class: Human / animal / extra-terrestrial hybrid
Group Membership: None
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Mobile across interstellar space
First Appearance: Body Count#1 (October, 1993)
Powers/Abilities: Unrevealed - however, he carries large guns and has large muscles, so it is likely that he was a good shot and possessed superhuman strength and durability.
History: Killfrenzy was an assassin of mixed parentage, including alien, animal and human, who was doomed to perpetually wander the galaxy in search of potential victims.
Comments: Created by Bambos Georgiou and Henry Flint. Killfrenzy was intended to debut in a four issue miniseries for Marvel U.K. in February 1994, but the series was cancelled along with a slew of other forthcoming Marvel U.K. titles when the imprint collapsed. However, some art for the series had been completed - artist Henry Flint implies that the whole series was completed in this online interview. Additionally, the character was depicted and briefly mentioned in Body Count, a promotional issue that discussed the artists and writers working for Marvel U.K. and hinted to various degrees at forthcoming projects. Promotional artwork shows him chewing on the glove of Spider-Man (or, in the colored artwork, Batman), supporting online comments that the character ate humans (the comments described him as a "cannibal" but I'd dispute that purely on the basis that as a part animal, part alien hybrid, humans would not be his species and thus he wouldn't be committing cannibalism to eat them).
Sigh - the '90s. Got to love how so many characters got named in the wake of Image being launched - take two violent sounding words and hammer them together. Kill Power, Blood Strike, Death Blow, Hell Shock, War Blade, Rip Claw, Die Hard, Kill Frenzy.
Since the promo art makes it clear the character is owned
by Marvel, and Flint's interview suggests all the artwork was completed,
maybe one day the character's adventures will be published. But I wouldn't
hold my breath.
