Silent, stealthy, and enigmatic, Black Noir is The Seven’s superpowered ninja. His super strength and heightened senses, such as his razor-sharp hearing, are matched only by his proficiency in the martial arts. Criminals run in terror at the mere mention of his name. Little is known about this lethal warrior, other than his having trained with a master sensei to become the death dealer that he is today. Whatever lies behind Black Noir’s mask is a complete mystery – which only makes him more terrifying.
Career as The Seven membersEdit
Black Noir is a feared member of The Seven, often used for his expert combat skills and extraordinary strength. Black Noir is one of the only people that has come face to face with The Female and lived. In Good for the Soul he was able to defeat The Female, perhaps only due to her weakened state. Furthermore, he is able to strike fear into the hearts of the public, putting Frenchie and Cherie into a panic after noticing him outside of their flat.
In the comicsEdit
In the comics, Black Noir is the silent member of the Seven and does not speak, nor does he show any human feelings. He was responsible for the rape of Billy Butcher's wife, and other atrocities such as the rape of Hughie. He is a direct clone of the Homelander, created by Vought in an attempt to ensure that the Homelander doesn't overstep his boundaries, and to kill him if he does. He went crazy from having to wait to kill Homelander, so he framed Homelander for various crimes, including rape and cannibalism for an excuse to kill him. He kills Homelander, but is severely injured in the encounter, allowing for the U.S. Armed Forces to further incapacitate him with a barrage of tank and machine gunfire. Black Noir is finally killed when Billy opens his skull with a crowbar and crushes his brains.
