Benjamin Turner was trained to kill by the League of Assassins who ensured his obedience through brainwashing. A master of hand-to-hand combat, he became known as the Bronze Tiger and was a greatly feared man for some time. He eventually overcame his brainwashing but had many crimes to atone for, joining the US government's Suicide Squad as its more or less permanent field commander.
