New Hero Spotlight: Gunblade
- Published on Tuesday, 20 March 2012 18:21
All he had known, all he had loved-- killed by the wild beasts. He could hear his own screams echoing in his ears as he dropped to his knees and drew his blade. Driven by madness, he began to carve a cursed symbol into his own flesh. Pain was forgotten and only revenge filled his mind. Soon, the symbol was complete and, bathed in his own rage-filled blood, a bargain was struck. The warrior's wish would be granted. He would be given the power that he so desired and the opportunity to exact his revenge. The now-cursed warrior was given two hell-forged firearms and was reborn as Gunblade, Hell's Ranger. Once a Lawman, now the Sheriff of the Damned.
