Fictional character biography

The youngest son of Tyler Stuart, a warden at Seagate prison, Tim Stuart was employed by Justin Hammer and given a costume, jet-pack, and assorted weaponry. He took the name Discus, as his weapon of choice was a throwing disc; he usually carried disc-shaped flying blades. The younger brother of Stiletto, he was most often partnered, and rarely went on his own missions. Like Stiletto, he was a constant thorn in Luke Cage's side, but he also battled the Heroes for Hire, the Daughters of the Dragon, and Iron Fist.[1][2] Much later, both Stiletto and Discus were seen in Justin Hammer's employ. Attempting to capture Iron Man, Stiletto and Discus attacked but were easily defeated after their weapons were unable to harm him.[3] He and his brother, while imprisoned, found religion, but soon reverted to their old ways and began working for Deadly Nightshade. However, as Stiletto continued on in his criminal career, Discus has not been seen for quite some time.[4]

A partnership began with the Sphinx and Justin Hammer brought Discus back to villainy. Along with Hammer's villain army, Discus battled Nova and Namorita, but he was defeated by both of them.[5][6]

Discus returned and is recruited as part of Hammerhead's supervillain army. However, Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D. forces attacked their forces.[7]

Discus appeared in Brand New Day as one of the villains at the Bar with No Name.[8]
