A Character… Special EDITION!

Posted by BRiAN On April - 14 - 2010

I promised in this past Saturday’s edition of A Character… that there would be a Special Edition today April 14th 2010 that would focus on a very nefarious real life villain! Hit the jump to see who it is!

It was on today in 1865 that John Wilkes Booth, and his fellow conspirators, put a plan into action that would go down in history books (as well as the comic books). A plan that, if all aspects were a success, would/could cripple the newly victorious North, Lee had surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House a mere four days earlier, and possibly weaken the Union once more. Instead it made Booth the first Presidential Assassin in American history, he was the only one to fulfill his portion of the plot, and send him on a twelve day run for his life that would ultimately end with his death at the hands of the Union soldiers hunting him.

Read his Wikipedia entry here

Read his Comic Vine entry here (yea, he’s got one there!)

Be sure to check out all of the sweet comics he’s been in like this one that is one of my favorites (and one that i actually own):

You gotta love robots that show you the news as it happens!
