Pascal Horta was a world renowned painter who was on the cusp of becoming the most prominent man in his field. Tragically, Horta's right hand was crushed in a car accident and with it so were his dreams. So eager to return to the canvas, Horta agreed to the unorthodox procedure of a hand transplant. It turned out that the donor of the hand was a killer named "Strangler" Burns and the killers blood began to mix with Horta's. This ended up driving Horta insane and he bgan calling himself Black Talon.
