Masquerade was a member of the Blood Syndicate in Dakota City.


  • Transformation: Masquerade's molecular structure responds to his will. He can manipulate his appearance to match that of an inanimate object, animal or any human being he so desires.


  • Masquerade is transgender, although he keeps this secret from the rest of the team. His biological sex was originally discovered by Fade[1] sometime after the formation of the Syndicate, although early previews of Blood Syndicate (Volume 1) in other books describe him as "her."
  • In Blood Syndicate #2, the narrator relaying the introductory text block refers to Masquerade as "Morph." This moniker is never used by any of the characters during the comic itself.
  • He was the first transgender superhero in comics.
