The Death Squad is a fictional team of technology-based supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They appeared in the series Iron Man, and first appeared in Iron Man volume 3 #1.
History[edit | edit source]
The origins of the Death Squad or its members are yet to be revealed. They are hired by a mysterious employer who wants Tony Stark, the armored Avenger known as Iron Man, dead. They manage to track Iron Man down at his main office, and a battle began. Though they gave Stark a good run for his money, they weren't able to defeat the super-hero. Stark is about to defeat the entire group but they manage an escape. Stark is unable to give pursuit as the Death Squad had damaged his armor's boot jets.
Another try at murder[edit | edit source]
Later, the Death Squad decide to give the murder attempt another try. They assist their employer (Justin Hammer) in the murder of several ionically-powered beings and in the grave-robbing of several of Stark's old acquaintances. S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury informs Stark about this and he investigates the matter, with the trail eventually leading toward the Death Squad, who were hiding out at the old castle of the ionically-powered, long-time Avengers foe Count Nefaria. Nefaria is revealed to be their employer. Iron Man manages to defeat Nefaria and his other minion, Nitro. In the heat of battle, the Death Squad again manages to escape.
Black Lama's Death Squad[edit | edit source]
The supervillains Melter, Whiplash, and Man-Bull are recruited by other-dimensional villain, the Black Lama, to form the team the Death Squad to vie for the Golden Globe of Power. They fought Iron Man at a convention, but were decisively defeated.
