Death Dealer is a mercenary that uses playing cards as his motif and employs these cards as weapons and as trick cards.

After Oliver Queen is attacked mistakenly by the Death Dealer, a card-wielding criminal out to kill Wallace Hooper, he learns that Hooper is really Davy Chase, a former con artist and current all-night deejay. Hooper testified against his mob employers and was given a new identity via the Witness Relocation Program. But Queen and Hooper are trapped in separate rooms by the Death Dealer, who then uses incendiary cards to set those rooms on fire. [1]

He along with Vengeance, the original Big Game, and Slingshot were killed by Cupid, a new Green Arrow villain who was killing the lesser known Green Arrow rogues to profess her love to him.[2]



Trick Cards

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
