Arcade hired Mister Nice and several other villains that consisted of Link, Sadista, Barb and Shortfuse to attack Northstar in New Orleans to test out his physical and mental limits. Mister Nice is appointed leader of this ragtag group of capes when they confront Northstar. Mister Nice plans to stab a battered Northstar but gets his arm broken when Northstar kicks it. Mister Nice is out of the equation and Northstar takes out the rest of the super villain rejects with some assistance from Alpha Flight teammate Heather Hudson as Guardian.
Mister Nice was created by Simon Furman and Dario Carrasco Jr in 1994 and first appeared in Northstar # 3.
Mister Nice never displayed any super powers or abilities with his fight with Northstar so it is unclear whether or not he truly has any. Mister Nice did carry a switchblade as his weapon of choice.
