Deadeye is a mercenary and assassin who has gained fame as a killer. He reportedly never misses a mark.
Deadeye is one of Dare the Terminator's enemies. In an altercation with Dare, Deadeye severely damaged her right eye (resulting in her having to wear a patch). Although Dare had already lost her sight in an experiment involving radioactive chemicals before this incident.
After a climactic battle, Deadeye "killed" fellow assassin Catsai (Elektra Kyle), but the feline fatale, who proved to have as many lives as her namesake, returned to the world of the living soon after.
Brought together by corrupt New Gotham mayor the Big Question (Edward Nigma Fisk), Deadeye and his fellow assassins, Lethal (Sergei Minerva) and Wired (Nathan Chase), discovered that they had past defeats at the hands of the same women (Dare and Catsai) in common. Together, Deadeye, Lethal, and Wired figured they could teach their mutual enemies a lesson in respect. Working for the Big Question made them think that the road to riches was all puzzled out.
Catsai and Dare made their way across Arkham Tower, killing anyone standing between them and the Big Question. They had already killed 11 mercenaries and Deadeye was their 12th opponent. Catsai gladly stuck one of her sai in his back, killing him. She commended that this felt right to her.
A little after Deadeye's death, Catsai alluded to having wanted to hit the "bull's eye" with her deceased opponent for quite some time. She believed that Dare had similar thoughts, though Dare denied having any feelings for Deadeye.
