The man who became the assassin Bullseye has always
had incredible accuracy at throwing objects. From an
early age, he used his ability to become a star
baseball pitcher. He had many offers to pitch for a
major league team, but decided instead to enlist in
One evening while on patrol, the man who would become
Bullseye was ambushed by the enemy. Attempting to
shoot his opponent, the soldier's gun jammed and he
instinctively threw the weapon, impaling the enemy on
the bayonet. Realizing that his throwing ability could
be used to turn even seemingly harmless objects into
weapons, the man became a mercenary and later a hired
assassin who went by the name Bullseye.
For many years, Bullseye took contracts and successfully
carried them out, becoming one of the highest paid and
best assassin in the business. He was eventually hired
by Wilson Fisk, the so-called Kingpin of crime in
New York City. The job was highly lucrative and Bullseye
was at the top of his game, though he sometimes came
into conflict with costumed heroes such as Spider-Man
Then, a new assassin came on the scene, a woman named
Elektra. She soon replaced Bullseye as the Kingpin's
hired assassin much to Bullseye's dismay. Wanting
to return to his former glory, Bullseye decided he would
have to kill Elektra to do so. During a battle between
the two assassins, Bullseye impaled Elektra with
her own weapon of choice, a sai, killing her.
Daredevil, who was romantically involved with Elektra,
later battled Bullseye. During the battle, Bullseye
fell from a great height and shattered his spine, paralyzing
him. He later traveled to Japan, where the Japanese
scientist, Lord Darkwind, used his abilites to mend
Bullseye's spine with the unbreakable metal, adamantium.
Since this time, Bullseye has clashed with Daredevil
as well as a number of other heroes on multiple ocassions.
He is responsible for the death of another of Daredevil's
love interests, Karen Page.
In the upcoming Daredevil movie, the character of
Bullseye has been included. The part is to be played
by Colin Farrell and the character appears to sport
a bullseye-shaped scar in the middle of his forehead.
