Also known as the Lord High Executioner. As Executive-in-Charge of Murder Incorporated he is also known by the rank ‘Lord High Executioner’. He is renowned for unparalleled brutality. He finally realises his ambition to become a crime boss during the 1950s at the expense of ‘others’. No doubt he would have approved of the efficiency in the planning of his own assassination in 1957.
