Mad Jack


After the success with Riley “Red” Reddington (aka „Redback“), the Australian army wanted to replicate the procedure that gave him his superpowers and recruited another prison inmate for the same genetic treatment based on Dr. Hayden Creed‘s Xenogene studies – only this time they used a Sydney funnel-web spider (Atrax robustus) as the gene donor.

The result was – as expected – an even stronger and more powerful superhuman, but they didn‘t thought of the possibility, that this testperson would not come out as heroic as Redback. Without missing a beat, Walker Stain used his new power to escape the prison and made his way back to Sidney, where a chance encounter with other superpowered criminals inspired him to use his new powers for profit and become both an assassinfor hire and a constant thorn in the side of his arch-enemy Redback.


Atrax possesses the overproportionate superhuman abilities and traits of a Sydney funnel-web spider, which – amongst others – provides him with 2 addtitional arms and a pair of spider-like appendages growing from his back which he had cybernetically reenforced to make them strong and dense enough to pierce thick steel plates and transport his organically produced, highly lethal poison that acts directly on the nervous system of humans and thus instantly kills them..

Additionally he has the ability to organically produce a silk liquid from glands in his fingers that can be used as some sort of web. He also possesses vast superhuman strength and speed, enhanced stamina and agility, and the capability to stick to virtually any surface and crawl across it or to rip a wall down just by tugging at it hard enough with his palms.
