An encounter with the original version caused this guy to take up his mantle. Introduced in Death’s Head II #1 (1992, a UK Imprint) by Dan Abnett and Liam Sharp, Minion, as he was known, was one of many cyborgs created by Dr Evelyn Necker for AIM in the 2020 universe. It was sent into the timestream to assimilate 105 people but when eliminated the original Death Head, he absorbed the bounty hunter’s mind into his head. This gave him a new personality with his 105 victims still in his mind. Tormented by these victims, 616 Mr. Fantastic helped him and allowed the Death’s Head personality to remain. He went to make a life for himself and teamed up with a woman named Turk.
He would later battle the Warheads and would team up with the X-men for a while. He was later hired to capture Killpower (another UK original character) and fought Wolverine and Sabretooth. He would later encounter the Doctor (Doctor Who) as well as She-Hulk. He would become involved in the Mys-Tech War and would later fight Black Ax. He was later hired to capture the Knights of Pendragon but would instead befriend the team. He would later fight Death Wreck and Death Metal. He would travel through multiple Universes until his comic was eventually cancelled but would pop up from time to time in other comics and would even battle the original Death’s head for a bit.
Despite being Marvel UK biggest exported comic, few people knew about Death’s Head II, being more familiar to his predecessor. He would however receive a figure as part of the GOTG Mantis wave.

- Because the original writer didn’t want to use the original Death’s Head, he decided to instead commission a new design character. His design give off a hard 90’s vibe, which was even more popular in the UK at the time.
- Why do you need it for your collection?
