Masquerade was a "Bang Baby" and member of the Blood Syndicate. Although a woman, since gaining her shapeshifting powers, Masquerade's form of choice is a man. She/he would later make the error of double-crossing the Blood Syndicate twice. First by stealing from them, and second by imitating Tech-9. The latter was brought about against his will.
Shape-shifter, able to assume virtually any animal form. Masquerade usually presented as an African-American man in a red costume, when s/he wasn't turning into a wide assortment of strange and dangerous creatures. Later after Masquerade was kidnapped and further experimented on by System, she/he could not only imitate another bang baby's form but their powers as well. She/he uses that to convince the Blood Syndicate that he is Tech-9. As Tech-9 (leader), Masquerade was responsible for the Syndicate instigating the Utopia Park riot. Not long after that, Dogg discovered that Masquerade was imitating Tech and attacked him. The other Syndicate members joined Dogg and fought against the Demon Fox and Masquerade. Following his defeat along with The death of the Demon Fox and the Syndicate member Kwai, Masquerade is convinced the Syndicate will kill him, but instead is free to go by word of Wise Son. Masquerade then disappears to an unknown fate as he hasn't been seen since his battle against the Syndicate.
