Hellrazor is a fictional assassin character in comic books published by Marvel Comics.

First Hellrazor[edit]

Publication history[edit]

Hellrazor first appeared in Marvel Team-Up #87 (November 1979), and was created by Steven Grant and Gene Colan.

The character subsequently appears in Captain America #319 (July 1986), in which he was killed by the Scourge of the Underworld.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Hellrazor was a costumed criminal outfitted by Roxxon Oil Corporation, hired to defame and kill the Black Panther. He was defeated by the combined forces of T’Challa and Spider-Man.[1]

Hellrazor was caught without his weapons at the "Bar With No Name," and shot dead by the Scourge of the Underworld.[2]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Hellrazor can draw upon any energy source to replenish his strength and stamina.

Hellrazor’s primary weapons were a pair of wrist blades – bracelets which had sharpened edges, and could also fire a stream of sharp razors from his wrists.

Second Hellrazor[edit]

Civil War[edit]

Another character named Hellrazor has appeared as a Superhuman Registration Act violator. He was running a protection racket in Billings, Montana, and was being held as a prisoner of the Thunderbolts. Two days after his arrest, he encountered Penance. Hellrazor began to taunt Penance about his role in the Stamford incident, until Penance attacked him and beat him severely.[3]

It is unknown at this time what connection, if any, he has to the Caprice, Mindwave, Mirage, and Bluestreak, who were also held as prisoners of the Thunderbolts shortly thereafter.
