By day, Reginald Carter is a wealthy playboy, entrepreneur, and eccentric, on the boards of several multinational companies. By night, he is Murder Man, a vicious crimelord who wiped out most of his competitors in the early 80s and now controls nearly all the crime in the city. He's preternaturally charismatic, and can strike fear in the hearts of any.
After an attempt on his life by a superhero, Carter realized he needed an heir. So he adopted Ricky Faust, an eleven-year-old orphan who was charismatic, ingenious, and mean. Over 5 years, Carter slowly revealed his criminal lifestyle to Faust, but the boy had already discovered much of this truth on the own, and leapt at the chance to become part of Murder Man's inner circle. Faust become Carter's go-to muscle, carrying a pair of meat cleavers and adopting the name Butcher Boy. While Carter runs his criminal organizations like a business, Faust is a little too gung-ho about being a costume villain.
With Butcher Boy at his side, Murder Man has all but solidified his stranglehold over Arcadia’s criminal underground, bringing together all manner of lawbreakers. Those who challenge the control Murder Man exercises over the city find themselves quietly disappeared, or worse, subjected to a visit from the psychotic Butcher Boy.
•Murder Man and Butcher, two villains your players will love to hate. There's obviously a very Dynamic Duo vibe to the pair, and that alone makes them cool villains. Butcher Boy channels modern Jason Todd in a Robin-era Jason Todd way. Murder Man is a classic Kingpin type who's less active about getting his hands dirty these days, more of a Batman Beyond Bruce, with the not inconsiderable twist of parahuman fear powers. Butcher Boy is the more visible of the two, cutting off limbs with glee while Murder Man should remain both visible and untouchable to the heroes-they know Murder Man exists, and they know Reginald Carter is up to something, but they have know idea that the two are one and the same, and couldn't find enough evidence to lock Carter away if they could. Murder Man's Cipher benefit is also useful for protecting him in grim and gritty campaigns, when heroes are less likely to lock him up as opposed to burying him. Knowing he's involved is one thing, but tracking Murder Man down should never be easy, especially when Butcher Boy is trying to hack your arms off.
