The Hangman (vol. 2) #1 December 2015
Michael “Mikey Ice” Minetta, a hitman for hire, lives in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn with his wife and daughter, Gabby. He is hired to “take care” of a man named Petey after he slept with another man’s wife. On his way back for the hit he is attacked by the Hangman (Robert Dickering) who proceeds to beat up Minetta and hang him from a street lamp. Minetta awakens in hell and is met by Satan. Satan tells Minetta the story of the Hangmen and how they have been around for centuries collecting the souls of those who are deemed unworthy to remain existing. Satan offers the now open position of the Hangman after Dickering was deemed worthy of ascension. Minetta initially refuses the offer until he realizes that his wife and daughter could still be put in danger. He accepts Satan’s offer and is brought back to walk the Earth as the Hangman.
