History Edit

Marcus Kane was once a normal man with who drove an ice cream truck, who was happily married and a father of three. However, a small part of him was filled with hatred for his mundane lifestyle, eventually manifesting as a split personality dubbed "Needles". Eventually, Marcus let Needles take full control and carved a clown mask for him, then went on a psychotic killing spree, starting with his wife and youngest son, and transforming his ice cream truck into a demolition machine. At some point he was captured and set to be killed by an electric chair, while a preacher damned him to hell for his violent actions. His head lit on fire, and he managed to bust out of containment and continue his rampage, now known as the murderous champion of Twisted Metal, Sweet Tooth.
