Whiplash

(pop culture)
The mercenary Whiplash, the Iron Man villain who has assumed two identities throughout his career, was introduced in a Stan Lee–scripted and Gene Colan–penciled story in Tales of Suspense #97 (1968). A part-time hitman for the Maggia crime syndicate, he creates a steel-fiber whip capable of penetrating virtually any substance, and in his Whiplash identity takes on Iron Man. Several years later, in Iron Man #62 (1973), the villain was established as Mark Scott, aka Mark Scarliotti, research head of Stark Industries Cincinnati. After serving time at Ryker's Island Prison and having his identity revealed to the authorities, the washed-up Whiplash reinvented himself as Blacklash. As a freelance mercenary for the Maggia, Blacklash often came head to head with criminals of organized crime, various miscreants, and his arch-rival Iron Man. Wearing a steel-mesh battlesuit, he displayed strong hand-to-hand combat and an adept control of his numerous whips, including one that converted into a nunchaku and could be extended into a pole for vaulting. Blacklash also battled Spider-Man (in teamups with Iron Man) in Marvel Team-Up vol. 1 #72 (1978) and #145 (1984), the Thing in Marvel Twoin- One #96 (1983), and a solo web-slinger in Amazing Spider-Man #319 (1989). Writer Kurt Busiek and artist Sean Chen brought the character back as Whiplash in Iron Man vol. 3 #8 (1998), with a new costume that some reviewers have likened to an S&M look. A version of Blacklash, renamed Backlash, appeared in the Iron Man animated television series (1994–1996).
