Backlash is a comic-book series from WildStorm, created by Jim Lee and Brett Booth. It was a Spin-Off from Stormwatch.

Born 3,000 years ago in Atlantis, Marc Slayton is the son of a human woman and an enhanced Kherubim warlord. When Atlantis fell, Marc was spirited away to dry land and raised to adulthood by his father's former adviser. With no family or friends, he spent the next few millennia adventuring, becoming a ninja, a knight, and eventually a secret agent in World War II, where he was recruited into Team Zero, the predecessor to the Wildstorm universe's Team Seven. During his service in the latter organization, he became exposed to the "Gen Factor", which activated his Kherubim heritage, granting him superpowers like the ability to generate psionic whips and turn into mist.

The original series ran from 1994 to 1997. Afterwards, he appeared in various other Wildstorm comics. Later his daughter Jodi took up the mantle herself.
