History[edit | edit source]

Attack at Tele-Aviv[edit | edit source]

Being one of the various organizations involved in the Paragon Arm Race to collect the organs of the Paragon Protocol, the Fist of Cain steal Paragon's brain and attempt to unleash a psychic attack at Tele-Aviv upon it's inhabitants to make them senselessly kill one another. With the intervention of Agent 37, Helena Bertinelli, and Midnighter, they're foiled and the brain ends up in Spyral's custody. Their leader, Christain Fliescher, is killed by then-Director Mister Minos during the end via gunshot to the head.[3]

Targeting Superman[edit | edit source]

With Superman's identity outed to the world by Lois Lane, the Fist of Cain target the Kryptonian whom was slowly losing his powers for unexplained reasons due to the rarity of killing a powerful alien like Superman. Along with targeting Superman they find themselves against Spyral Agent 37. With the use of "Super Juice" and their new member Blockbuster, they give both the Spyral agent and Kryptonian a hard time. However, they're defeated when their efforts are assisted by Lex Luthor and the members present are taken into custody by Batman and GCPD.[2]

Weapons and Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • Paragon's Brain (formerly): Paragon's Brain allows for the usage of psychic attacks in which can be "programmed" in a way to perform a task. This was later taken away into the custody of Spyral.[3]
  • Super Juice: Super Juice is liquid in which somehow endows the members of the Fist of Cain with superpowers. So far, the only example seen is super strength and enhanced speed.[2]
