Black Hand’s book
While Hand gains little benefit from his own book (he knows what’s inside), a lesser criminal would probably find this sum of Hand’s knowledge extremely useful. The book’s stats are [BODY 02 /INT/ 07 /WIL/ 07, Limitation : /INT/ and /WIL/ only when committing a crime]. You have to own the book (or have 14+ APs of Recall to commit it to memory) to benefit from it.


Black Hand (real name, William Hand) is a supervillain and an enemy of Green Lantern Hal Jordan. He uses a device that allows him to drain the powers of a Green Lantern Ring, and use them for himself. Having trained himself extensively, he is a criminal mastermind who keeps an extensive journal of all of his methods on his person to refer to instantly at any point. He has a fondness for incorporating the themes of old clichés into his work.

Black Hand was lobotomized and placed in Arkham Asylum in 2004.
