“After a losing streak at the Flying Pig Casino, Tell murdered a willing gambler in the parking lot. A deck of cards in the man’s jacket flew out at Tell. The cards burrowed into his skin. Becoming his skin” (Flash #210). According to Tell, the cards are cursed. Whatever the reason, he can peel them off and launch them, controlling their movement with his mind. Flat, they can cover anything. Edge-on, they’re razor-sharp and deadly.
