He grew up hating America, American heroes particularly, they had destroyed his village when he was young. He and his father were the only ones that escaped with their lives, his father hated the Americans just as much and he set about train his son to be the instrument of his vengeance. He trained the boy in the art of the whip, by the age of 16 the child had grown to be a powerful young man with unmatched skill with the whip.
His father died and the man, now calling himself The Whip, set out to make sure that the super heroes that destroyed his village reaped what they had sown. They were older now, no match for The Whip, they did not even remember the village, and would not remember now. They where dead.
