Devil-Slayer (Marvel)(01 - Eric Payne)
Real Name: Eric Simon Payne
Search for 'Devil-Slayer (Marvel)(01 - Eric Payne)' on Amazon

The source of Devil-Slayer's telepathy is unknown. He possessed the power to cast a telepathic screen over himself, altering his appearance to the people who look at him. He could telepathically jam gunlocks, levitate himself, and decipher languages. Devil-Slayer wore a Shadow-Cloak, with which he could teleport to other dimensions, and through which he could draw weapons from any age in history. He wielded many different weapons, including a staff that acted as a protector against harm, a blade that hungered for demon blood, a mace that wielded negative energy, Dragonfang (Valkyrie's sword) and a futuristic gun. Payne briefly possessed a shard of the Nexus of All Realities, with which he could give his personal demons form and alter reality.

A war veteran who enjoyed killing a little too much, Payne became a hit man after he left the service. After killing a woman and her child, Payne decided he wasn't cut out for the mob. Joining the Demon Cult, he went along with their plan to repopulate the Earth with demons until he realized that meant destroying all humans. Payne began to travel the Earth, expunging demons where-ever he found them.

Devil-Slayer has been in character limbo for a very long time until being recently mentioned in The Last Defenders #1. He wasn't seen but considered as a member of the Initiative's Defenders team. Eric Payne eventually returned in the pages of Avengers: The Initiative where he was a member of the Initiative's Point Men team in Hawaii.
