Hawk: Anthony Durrant
tells us: The Hawk was a slender villain who dressed up
as a hawk and carried a trained hawk that he would use to
bring down various circus acrobats, which he kept concealed
under his cape. Unfortunately for him, his last target was
the circus run by the Announcer, and in the process of trying
to stop a set of quadruplets from performing their trapeze
act, he was killed by the lion after he ran into his cage
to retrieve his pet hawk, which had flown into the lion's
cage. His real name was Ravonno and he was a former circus
magician which explained his ability to disappear and to
switch himself for his trained hawk, making it look like
he changed shape. NOTE: Sadly Mr. Durrant didn't
provide me with any publishing info, so not sure where the
proper place is for this entry.
Face: Anthony Durrant
tells us: Pretty Face was a ruthless killer who left his
trademark - a card with a picture of a heart pierced with
an arrow on it - at the scenes of his murders. He mistakenly
kidnapped Ethan Hunt, Special Police Operative 13, on the
assumption that he was Tom, a fellow police officer and
the fiance of a girl named Rosie. His plan was to burn down
his hideout with both Tom and Rosie in it, killing them
both. Unfortunately for him, Rosie dashed water in his face,
and Hunt pulled off Pretty Face's handsome face to reveal
his real one - Pretty Face's real face was hairless, with
big wild eyes and frizzy hair, the result of a warehouse
fire. Just as Pretty Face was about to shoot Hunt, Tom burst
in and shot him.
