Today, we meet Joe Black. Joe Black is a Deathstalker scorpion and is the enforcer of The Huntsman’s crew. The deathstalker is regarded as the most dangerous species of scorpion. Think of him as the Frankie the Force of the bug family. Despite his occupation, Joe is quite a cordial bloke who enjoys classical music from the late romantic period and drinking espresso.
