History

Arcade (real name unknown) is a psychotic assassin with a juvenile sense of humour who kidnaps his prospective victims and turns them out to fight for their lives in his hidden Murderworld complexes, often with the assistance of his associates Miss Locke and Mr Chambers. He attempted to kill Spider-Man and Captain Britain in New York (kidnapping Courtney Ross along the way), and years later hired Slaymaster to try to kill Captain Britain again as a commission for the crimelord known as the Vixen. He has repeatedly clashed with the Captain and with various other superheroes including the X-Men over the years since.

Notes

  • Arcade first appeared in a Spider-Man/Captain Britain team-up. It was published more or less simultaneously in the British Spider-Man weekly from Marvel UK and the American Marvel Team-Up from Marvel Comics in the US in November 1977 (though the US edition was actually dated January 1978, a few months later; at the time, it was customary for American comics to be dated three months after the date of publication as it was thought to increase their shelf life).
  • Most of Arcade's subsequent appearances have been in American comics, though he did return to the British Captain Britain strip by Alan Moore in The Daredevils.
