The scum known as Sinner built up a drug business with the unwilling help of children. He gave runaways money and a place to stay and they had to work for him to pay it back. He brutalized the children whenever they didn't work fast enough. Rumors were circling around about his business, but nobody did anything against it.

(Marvel Comics Presents I147/4) - Sinner was observed by American Eagle, Det. Ramirez and Tony St. Clair. Sinner wanted to hit a boy for not working fast enough, and American Eagle stopped him. Sinner sent his bodyguards against Eagle and Ramirez, who beat them. Sinner told American Eagle that nobody wanted these kids, blamed the parents for their problems, and said that the kids loved him even though he beat them. Eagle wanted to leave with the children, but Sinner got angry and pulled his gun out. American Eagle beat him up for that.




Comments: Created by John Figueroa and Ron Wilson

Sinner was probably arrested by Detective Ramirez after he got beaten up by American Eagle. I can't tell your for sure, because it wasn't shown.

adult bodyguards

They where the henchmen of Sinner. They did the fighting for him, but American Eagle and Frank Ramirez were too much for their skills. They were beaten despite their bats, pipes and crowbars.
