Bushmaster (Marvel) (01 - John McIver)
Real Name: John McIver
Search for 'Bushmaster (Marvel) (01 - John McIver)' on Amazon

Bushmaster has great superhuman strength and durability, greater than that initially possessed by Luke Cage. As Power Master, he was even stronger. He can drain power from other sources to amplify his abilities. He often employs costumed agents, as well as numerous conventional gunmen. He is an experienced streetfighter.

John McIver was a powerful crime boss, criminal financier and organizer, and was oft-confronted by the super-hero Iron Fist. McIver is best known for his attempts to lure Misty Knight to his side. Misty even faked a relationship once in an attempt to bring Bushmaster down. In an attempt to exact revenge on Knight, he hired Luke Cage to kidnap her and bring her to him. As added incentive, he promised evidence that Cage was framed for the heroin possession charge he was imprisoned for, as well as holding Claire Temple and Noah Burstein hostage. Bushmaster forced Burstein to mutate him as he had Cage, but was nonetheless defeated and soon became paralyzed by the process. Bushmaster later died in battle when he was turned into a metal-like substance, and his code-name was later honored by his younger brother, Quincy.
