Marv (Sin City)
Real Name:
Search for 'Marv (Sin City)' on Amazon


Bio:
A tough, violent, big bruiser of a man, who has an uncanny athletiscm along with a lot of power, spends his time on the streets doing odd jobs for various people. He suffers from a mental condition that causes him to "get confused", which is believed to involve short-term memory loss and possibly hallucination. Lucille, his parole officer, supplies him with medication to control these effects of his condition, though he doesn't seem to be supplied anything that would curb his violent nature. His personal code of honor dictates the repayment of debts and a sort of chivalry towards women.

Notes:
Marv is a classic example of a noir anti-hero; creator Frank Miller describes Marv as "Conan in a trench coat".
