Dr. Peyton Westlake

First appearance: Darkman (1990)
Scientist Dr. Peyton Westlake seeks vengence after being blown up by vicious criminal and amateur finger collector Robert G. Durrant. Unfortunately being blown up has resulted in Dr. Westlake being hideously scarred and losing the ability to feel pain.
Fortunately Dr. Westlake was working on a formula for artificial skin allowing him to make realistic looking masks to disguise himself as anyone. He uses his new found abilities to destroy Durrant's gang and hunt down the man who hired Durrant to blow him up!
This is Sam Raimi's tribute to weird pulpy comic books and the old Universal Monsters.
