Charles Last, also known as the Ringleader, is a supervillain from Marvel Comics and the leader of The Death-Throws, a gang of criminal jugglers.

History

Charles Last was a professional juggler with criminal aims. His attention was called by brothers Elton and Alvin Healey, so he recruited both of them for a new gang of costumed criminals: The Death-Throws, under the leadership of Last, would be at the same time costumed mercenaries and jugglers. They would take advantage of their juggling skills and use throwing weapons. Last became the Ringleader. Elton adopted the name of Oddball due to his loony nature, and his tenpin-throwing brother would be know as the Tenpin. The fourth member of the team was Knickknack, recruited under undisclosed circumstances.

Although the Death-Throws valued teamwork more than other villain groups, Oddball suddenly broke up with the Death-Throws for unknown reasons. Tenpin found him after a while, and took him back to the Death-Throws. While solo, Oddball had began to work with another criminal juggler, Bombshell, and had convinced her to join the Death-Throws.

Oddball's previous boss Crossfire contacted the Death-Throws from jail. He wanted the jugglers to release him, and agreed to pay them when he was freed. The Ringleader accepted the deal, and the other Death-Throws worked together to free Crossfire. However, once they had taken Crossfire to their own HQ, they discovered that Crossfire was broke. His assets had been impounded and he had lost any useful link with Cross Technologies. The Death-Throws decided to use Crossfire as a bait to attract Hawkeye and Captain America to a trap, but those two Avengers defeated all of the Death-Throws. Ringleader and his partners went to jail.

Although Oddball was killed in Madripoor, and Bombshell left provisionally the team, the Death-Throws continued with their usual crime contracts, and had recently fought Union Jack.
