Fictional character biography[edit]

Bullet (Buck Cashman) is a mercenary who serves as an agent of the United States government, assigned to perform covert activities. He is directed by government officials to assist in terrorist activities against environmentalists, on the behalf of Wilson Fisk. He first comes into conflict with Daredevil and battles him on this mission.[1]

Bullet also participates in an attack along with Typhoid Mary and other criminals that nearly results in the death of Daredevil.[2]

Bullet next battles Daredevil again, mistakenly thinking Daredevil is a threat to his son, Lance.[3]

Some time later, the Kingpin sent Bullet to retrieve a contractor's map, but Bullet encountered Daredevil along the way, who defeated him.[4] Bullet was later among the superhuman criminals who tried to escape from the Vault, a prison for superhumans. Along with Griffin and Orka he makes it farther than most, emerging from a vent half a mile from the prison. All three are defeated by Hank Pym and Captain America.[5]

Bullet is later seen being beaten by Daredevil during Matt's year as Kingpin of Hell's Kitchen.[6]

Sometime later, Bullet is among a group of contract killers hired by the Assassins' Guild to hunt Wolverine and Domino of X-Force. During the ensuing battle, Bullet is stabbed in the chest by Warpath.[7]
