The Other Side
When he was born Lester was having a mental breakdown and was going to kill his own son, but if it wasn't for his mother he would have been dead. She flew herself in between them and was killed. If it wasn't for th police either he would have been dead. He was later sent to an orphanage and was treated as an outcast. He later grew up wondering who his father was only to find out that he was none other than Bullseye. He started to see how he and his father were alike, and that how they never missed. He started to investigate why his father left him, only to find that he killed his mother. That night he was starting to go insane and became this other person and tried to assasinate his own father. They next morning he saw his hands covered in blood and saw that Slingshot wrote him a letter saying embrace the other side. His life only got worse from there. Slingshot started to take away everything he cared about, only to leave him to trust Slingshot. After going back to Hells Kitchen he started encountering Ghostdevil, and the two become archenemies. But soon after Drake met what he says, "A beautiful greek goddess", Gabbe Murdock. The two started dating until they found out each others identities. Slingshot not caring who she was tried to kill her and take care of her for good, only to be defeated.
After a few months of fighting Drake couldn't take it any more, he had to get rid of Slingshot. He was able to arrive at the Shield Base where they had a device that was able to separate Slingshot and Drake. As the operation was sucessful they were able to take Slingshot into jail, but sadly to be taken out by Westly Osborn. Slingshot was later in partnership with Osborn and was assigned to kill Drake Barton. But before he just went out to kill him he tried to find out who he really was. He found a DNA test saying that Clinton Barton was Drake's real father. The DNA was also mixed with Bullseye's DNA and found out that he was Slingshot's father. Interested with this finding he decided to go and investigate what Drake was doing. He found that he went back to Gabbe and she tried to help him stop Slingshot. Slingshot then tried to kill Drake, wo became Longshot, but was defeated not by him but Bullseye. Bullseye told Longshot the truth and the two were enemies.
