Darth Wiki: Akimbo Albino
An original idea for a DC superhero by this troper.

The Akimbo Albino (Real Name: Mack Yengko)

Proposed story arcs:Drawing on the "Veritas Liberat" storyline (which ended with Bane making a Heel-Face Turn), Bane leaves the Secret Six (for some reason) and tries his hand at being a superhero but almost none of the Justice League trust him. The Akimbo Albino decides to take the risk of having Bane as a partner (though he does comment that he'll need spine-repair insurance in case Bane does make a Face-Heel Turn). Tropes used:
When his godparents and their family were wiped out by a crime syndicate, he puts his Thou Shalt Not Kill rule on hold and goes on a brutal Roaring Rampage of Revenge. After he completely wipes out the syndicate he turns himself in and is sentenced to life in prison until he gets a pardon for going on a black ops mission for the Suicide Squad. Understandably, he needed to work hard to repair his reputation (and especially his standing with the Justice League) after this. Tropes used:
  • Anti-Hero: Mack goes into type IV territory for this one.
  • The Atoner: Mack feels responsible because he convinced his godparents' daughter to turn testimony against The Syndicate. He also really needed to repair his reputation after his vendetta rampage.
  • Boxed Crook: In the aftermath of the Roaring Rampage of Revenge, he gets a pardon for agreeing to do a black ops job for the Suicide Squad.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The Akimbo Albino inflicts this on the trio of hitmen who killed his godparent's family:
    • The first hitman he interrogates via breaks a finger with a hammer, cuts off the finger, cauterizes the wound with a red-hot poker, and then moves on to the next finger. He does this to all the hitman's fingers and then sets him on fire.
    • The second hitman he tases unconscious, drags him into a secluded area, injects a painkiller into him, cuts his stomach open and drapes his intestines above him, wakes the man up by thrusting a lit cigarette into his eye, interrogates him, injects a substance that cancels out the painkiller, and then pours a jar of angry red ants into the guy's cut-open stomach and walks away (did we mention that the hitman is allergic to ant bites?)
    • And as fo the last and worst: 10-hour Pressurization chamber torture
  • Darker and Edgier
  • Fate Worse than Death: When Mack gets ahold of the low-level syndicate accountant who paid the hitmen, Mack decides that he isn't scummy enough to torture outright but at the same time must suffer for his role. So he finds out that the accountant once ran afoul of the Joker and Mack ties him up near the Joker's last known location and leaves him. Cue Evil Laugh from the darkness after the accountant is desperatly pleading to a walking-away Akimbo Albino.
  • How We Got Here: The story arc starts with Mack in a interrogation room before giving an interview to Lois Lane and Clark Kent with Commisioner Gordon overseeing.
  • It's Personal
  • Luxury Prison Suite: When Mack goes to prison, he had already used most of the money he took from The Syndicate to bribe almost all of the guards into giving him his own cell with laptop, internet access, and take-out fast-food.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: and how!
  • Play-Along Prisoner: Mack makes it very clear that he is this when he gets sentenced to life in prison.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge
  • Stuffed In The Fridge: Mack's godparents and their family
  • The Syndicate: It has major operations in Metropolis, Gotham, New York City, and Hub City and had connections to Intergang and Black Mask.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Mack puts this rule on hold.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Many superheroes Mack comes across call him out for his vigilante rampage.
