Search for 'Cutthroat (Marvel)' on Amazon
Cutthroat possesses no superhuman abilities, although he is highly skilled with daggers and knives, both thrown and in hand-to hand combat. He is an above average fighter and is a moderately skilled marksman with guns. His costume is a light protective armor, and he carries assorted specialty daggers, most Adamantium-edged.
Danny Leighton is an assassin as well as a former member of the Skeleton Crew and the Savage Crims. He defeated Mangler and Deathstrike in a fight to the death to become the Red Skull's new chief operative, replacing Crossbones. He had a brief affair with Mother Night. When Crossbones returned, Cutthroat feared he would be made redundant, and so planned to kill him in his sleep. However, Mother Night alerted Crossbones to the plan, and so Crossbones was waiting for the "ambush" and slit Cutthroat's throat and he was seemingly killed. However, unknown circumstances show that he is alive and was an inmate in The Raft where he escaped with a lot of other convicts. He was later recaptured.
The Hood hired him as part of his criminal organization to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act. Cutthroat was involved their failed attack on the New Avengers and the fight with the heroes against the Skrull invasion.
