Not a Ghost of a Chance….
Boston Brand’s story begins with his death. A trapeze artist of great fame working for the Hills Bros Circus, Boston would put on his blood red uniform and put on his ghost white mask and makeup and perform death defying acrobatic arts from dizzying heights, mostly without the benefit of a net. As luck would have it, the placement of a net would not have saved Boston Brand from his ill-timed fate, Boston was shot and killed by an assassin named The Hook.
With his spirit in limbo, Boston was saved by the entity known as Rama-Kushna, and Boston was placed into servitude to find his assassin and along the way help others in need in order to earn his way out of limbo.
Boston embarked on his mission a true Deadman walking. Invisible and inaudible to others, he can enter a person’s body and possess them temporarily in order to control their actions.
Brand found his assassin, a man who had killed Boston as an initiation test into the League of Assassins, but before Boston could exact justice upon him, the assassin was killed by the leader of the League of Assassins, The Sensei. Failing in his mission, Boston now would balance the scales of justice, Boston’s good deeds get him closer to his eternal reward, while his misdeeds keep him in his ghostly state.
