Powers/Abilities: Experienced enough to serve
as second-in-command of an organized criminal organization, Jules was
experienced in criminal strategy and likely in armed and unarmed
That being said, all he actually did was carry around a drink, express hunger, and recognize an obvious trap while failing to appreciate that it was the cover for another assault.
He had numerous criminals serving under him who carried various weapons, mostly machine guns.

(Death's Head I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Jules "Kneecap" Venici was the first lieutenant and controller of the criminal Undertaker's uptown interests.
(Death's Head I#4 (fb) - BTS) - The Undertaker's rival, Dead Cert, hired the freelance peacekeeping agent Death's Head to take out the Undertaker's killer, Plaguedog. Unsure how to find Plaguedog, Death's Head resolved to kill the Undertaker's first lieutenant, Venici, and then threaten his second lieutenant, Capedellani, in hopes of luring out Plaguedog.
(Death's Head I#4 (fb) - BTS) - "Kneecap" was enjoying a drink with a lady at his birthday party.
Comments: Created by Simon Furman and Lee Sullivan.
"Kneecap" had a sub-profile in the
Undertaker profile, first published back in 4/22/2003. I didn't see
"Kneecap" linked from Death's Head's foes, so I thought he didn't have
a profile. It wasn't until I went to link this profile to the
Undertaker that I saw that he had a sub-profile there...but, anyway,
he's got a full name, a full body image, a personality, and a couple
interesting pages, so worth the profile in my book.
This profile was completed 04/06/2021, but its publication was delayed as it was intended for the Appendix 20th anniversary 's celebratory event.
