Character Spotlight: Guillotine

There's not much to say about this one, as she's brand new. I've mentioned in previous posts that Marvel currently has a series called Contest of Champions, which ties into a video game of the same name, even though the series is in continuity and the game is not. Despite that, the company behind the video game has a lot of input into the series.

While the video game mainly uses well-known Marvel characters, the series tends to go for a more international flavor, using such characters as the South Korean White Fox, a British version of the the Punisher named Outlaw, the Greek Ares, and more. To that end, the company created a French character named Guillotine, who is the latest in a long line of vigilantes armed with a bloodthirsty, sentient sword named Le Fleur du Mal.

She appears in Contest of Champions #1 (October 2015).

Despite her very 90s backstory, I like her look and hope she appears outside of Contest of Champions in the future.
