Michael Samson, Marine call sign Heckel, was a member of the Marine unit, Equalizer, that was the source of the Dragonslayer rumors. He and his twin brother, Jeckel, are Exemplar-1s and have a twin link that lets them see through each other's eyes, and are extreme pranksters. They went to Whateley, lived in Twain, and were part of the Underdogs and the Grunts. Heckel is married, and is currently working in Derry, Maine, as a laborer, with his twin.

He likes Brass Monkey. [1]


The Dragonslayers take on the Lamplighter during a Parkour run in Boston.[2]

The Dragonslayers get involved with the Bad Seeds and the DeVille Academy kids during the Bad Seeds layover in New York.[3]



Heckel is not his mutant code name, unless he changed it from his original one. Erik Mahren (Hijacker) started calling the twins Heckel and Jeckel after the cartoon characters, and the names stuck.
