QUOTE: "Fightin' the Flash. Fastest man alive. Ain't so fast ta me. I weave webs a' light. Hero versus villain. Villain versus hero. That's what I do now. Th' great American way." —The Mirror Master

SUMMARY:  Scotsman Evan McCulloch, an orphan, took his first life at an early age, an unfortunate event that would initiate years of violent behavior and psychological conflict. Death would become a constant component of the hit-man-for-hire's lifestyle. It was McCulloch's skill as a mercenary, and his seeming relish for the work, that attracted the attention of the United States government. America's shadow agencies were seeking to accomplish secret agendas and willing to sponsor a program that provide skilled mercenaries with the identities of supervillains to accomplish their goals. Evan McCulloch was given the costume and the equipment of the Mirror Master and the colorful identity changed his life. Now, the very government that granted McCulloch the powers of one of America's most unique supervillains is trying to take them back. Special Agent James Jesse has ordered that McCulloch should be taken dead or alive, the first target in a looming underworld war that will pit the former Trickster and a team of supervillains gone straight against the new Mirror Master and the reconstituted Rogues Gallery!
