Todd McFarlane's Spawn

Overkill appears as a major antagonist in the first season of the series and serving as the main antagonist of episode "No Rest, No Peace".

When some of Tony's hit-men were killed, Overkill was called by a man Vito Gravano to find the person who killed tony's hit-men.

Later on, Overkill came to the alley, so he can write a message by ripping apart a homeless man. At midnight, a showdown between Spawn and Overkill started, and Overkill lost an eye due to Spawn jamming a lead pipe in it. Spawn tracked him to the repair facility where he was being fixed and dismembered the robot. The pieces were sent back to Gravano for evidence and as a threat to not mess with Spawn again.
