2010-07-02 17:36:19 aaronmoish Bio Roland was originally a Hollywood actor seeking to make it big. Unable to achieve fame or fortune any other way, he made a deal with a make-up artist claiming to be an emissary of the devil: the old "soul-in-exchange-for-success" trick. The man made Roland into an extremely convincing monstrous form for the film "The Demon that Devoured Hollywood," which made him a complete success. Roland sought to break the deal and threatened the life of the make-up artist, but found after the last day of shooting was over that he could not remove the make-up and was trapped in monstrous form. He was last seen screaming and fleeing the set. Roland hid out for years, before finally, in desperation he called out to the demon with whom he had originally made a deal. The demon revealed itself as Satannish and returned him to his normal form with enhanced physical powers in exchange for his assistance in a plot. Mammoth Studios was beginning a remake of Roland's old movie. The Hangman appeared and threatened everyone involved, driving off several actors and staff. Hangman allied himself with Nightshift, and convinced them to summon Satannish in order to gain enhanced power for themselves. Not believing they were actually risking their own souls, they did so. Wonder Man and the Avengers West Coast came to the set of the movie and attempted to allow it to finish. However, the violent energies given off by their battle against Night Shift, as well as a side-plot used to lure Dr. Strange to another dimension, allowed Satannish to manifest himself in the Earth dimension. His plot was planned for all who watched the film of the battle to lose their souls to Satannish. However, Agatha Harkness assisted the Avengers by summoning Dr. Strange to oppose Satannish. The Avengers stopped the filming while Dr. Strange convinced the Night Shift that their souls were in jeopardy, causing them to reject Satannish's power. Night Shift joined with the Avengers and Strange in attacking Satannish. As a result, Satannish lost his foothold in the Earth dimension and was banished back to his realm of Hell. Satannish punished Roland by taking his soul with him, leaving him alive, but a mindless husk. Later, Satannish revived Roland as the Hangman to assist him in another plot. This time, Satannish stole the souls of four of mankind's most heinous murderers from the realm of Mephisto in order to form a new Lethal Legion. Satannish had Hangman lead this Legion to successfully abduct Mockingbird back to his realm, knowing that the Avengers West Coast would follow, and that he could gain their souls as well. The Avengers did follow, and Hangman and the Legion defeated them, trapping them within the walls of Satannish's realm. However, angered that Satannish had stolen some of his souls, Mephisto assisted the Avengers in their journey to the realm of Satannish and engaged Satannish himself. This distraction allowed the Avengers to free themselves. Satannish was forced to withdraw the enhancements to the Legion and the Hangman in order to use his full strength against Mephisto. This allowed the Avengers to easily defeat them, and they managed to escape back to Earth. The souls of the Lethal Legion were destroyed when Mephisto and Satannish both struggled to keep them. Mephisto sought the souls of the Avengers to make up for the ones he had lost, and he managed to gain the soul of Mockingbird before the Avengers' portal to his realm closed. The fate of Roland was not stated, but I'm guessing Satannish felt a need for some punishment. Roland was originally a Hollywood actor seeking to make it big.
