As Blacklash

Whiplash (later Blacklash) is a villain in the Marvel universe, and an enemy of Iron Man. He is in league with Thunderbolts.


Mark Scarlotti was a brilliant technician for the Cinncinatti branch of Stark International, but his greed got the best of him. Using a special whip that could generate an electric current powerful enough to tear through Iron Man's armor, Scarlotti became Whiplash, an assassin under the employ of the Maggia. After several defeats, Scarlotti called it quits, married, and had a child, but after money troubles, he returned to villainy, and his wife was killed, he took revenge, only to try to retire once more. He was later killed by Iron Man's Sentient Armor.
