Event Timeline


Goldenglove (Maxie Costello) was a moderately successful "black mask" criminal from the Kiefer Square district.


Maxie Costello, a former boxer with a knack for tinkering. He turned criminal after discovering a pair of hi-tech golden gloves, the property of a now dead alien found inside a crashed spaceship.

Like several other residents in the Kiefer Square area, every time he accumulated a decent sum of money, it soon was gone. In his case, almost all of it went back into his criminal endeavors, whether it was enhancing his lab or acquiring more sophisticated equipment. He once bought a blimp, that he converted into a submarine, only to have to destroy it and fake his death when being pursued by the Street Angel.

A fatality of the Black Mask Killer in 1998, his daughter took his gloves and became the new Goldenglove.


The gloves augment some of the skills of the wearer, like super-strength. It also provides a multitude of other powers, some yet to be discovered.
