Great hand to hand combatant and gunman whose greatest fighting tactic is that of charging head first into his victim with his steel alloy skull...Once had use of an exo-skeleton which enhanced his strength
Hammerhead began his career as a junior hit-man, working for the Maggia. Following a brutal defeat in which his head was shattered, Jonas Harrow discovered him in an alley, and operated on him - replacing his broken skull with his metal replacement.
Upon awakening, Hammerhead was infatuated with the 1920's movie poster which was the last thing he saw before awakening, and adopted the role of the mobster "Hammerhead", favoring 20's clothing and weaponry, and the talk and behavior of the criminals of that time. Needless to say, Hammerhead has a screw or two loose in that metal skull of his. He no longer remembers his real name.
Updated 12/2006 Hammerhead has regained his memory and makes a bid to take control of the Kingpin's empire whilst Fisk is in prison. He is thwarted when Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D attack a major meeting and take down the entire gang. Hammerhead is presumed dead after being shot in his hospital bed by Underworld.
Sivermane, Hammerhead's boss, called him Joseph in Amazing Spider-Man #618 but it's unknown if that's Hammerhead's real name. He is called Joseph again in Kingpin #2
