In the world of art there is one distinct indication of success. Many artistic characters across the industry seek for fame. These cuts across performing, composing, hand crafts, and modeled characters. Fame is the driving force for money. When a character gets popular revenue returns increase benefiting people involved. In many industries success of one individual is not wholly enjoyed by him or her alone but also by the supporting team. This sharing is brought about by the team work involved to make one successful. One definition of getting popular will be as great as getting in to list of eight hundred novels containing your name. This is huge fame. Most Novels hit the million sales mark. It guarantees a character in them the audience of at least eight million people. Mack Bolan is one such character, he enjoyed this fame. What is special about him?

Mack Bolan was the first born of Samuel Bolan and Elsa. The couple lived to have two more children. He was born in 1939 and was raised in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. At the age of 18 He was enlisted in the army. He earned two assignments in Vietnam. This made him gain the nickname sergeant of mercy for his compassion to the Vietnamese civilians. Despite this compassion in his relations, professionally he gained skills that earned him expertise in being a sniper. He garnered a kill of over 90 people. He majorly played key roles in penetration and intelligence gathering, guerilla warfare, skilled amour, marksmanship and munitions.

One day Mack Bolan received thrilling news from an Army chaplain. This made him take an immediate leave from work, his heart was graving for revenge. It was the begging of along war against the Mafia. The news was about the murder of all his family members except for his younger and only brother Jonny. The murder had been perpetrated by his biological father. This factor made him eager to know more about what exactly had pushed his father to commit such a crime. It kept the suspense high as the chaplain continued explaining the unfolding of events. Samuel Bolan suffered a heart attack immediately after His son resumed for his second assignment to Vietnam. This cut of the family’s only source of income since he was forced to quit working at the steel mill. He went and took a loan from one of the famous Massachusetts loan sharks, Triangle Industrial Finance. This firm was controlled by the mafia of western Massachusetts. Due Mack Bolan’s father inability to pay his monthly installments the Mafia tormented him.
On one occasion Samuel Bolan’s arm was dislocated as punishment to missing paying a previous month loan installment.

Cindy Bolan, Mack Bolan’s second born sister was compelled by this infliction of pain and torment that she took a step to save his father. He started taking $35 per week to cover up for his father. This was a secret move only known to her and the loan sharks. As time elapsed, the situation became more demanding that she heed to the advice the Mafia gave her of becoming a prostitute. Through prostitution, Cindy was now able to keep his father out of the pain and humiliation inflicted on him by the Mafia. Johny Bolan, Mack Bolan’s younger brother came to learn about his sister’s engagement in prostitution through a torment from a school mate. This sparked a fight in which Johny lost. Due to the weight of the torment and the schoolmate’s insistence he sought for truth. It led him to confront her sister attending to a client in one of the local motel. This hit him hard that he broke the news to their father. Samuel Bolan arranged for a way to confirm it. It didn’t take long before she confronted her daughter too.
Cindy admitted and explained herself out but it had already gotten too far. His father opted to take her and Elsa’s life using a gun before terminating his life too. This left the family of five with only two members alive in a span of one day.

This narration created the fighting spirit in his adventure to wipe out the Mafia. It kept him Angry that kept the whole experience full of thrill and action. Immediately after reaching home, Mack Bolan broke into a sport’s man shop and took a high- powered rifle, several targets and several boxes of ammunition. As a gesture of good faith he left an envelope containing money to cover for the purchase. This started a chain of 38 bloody encounters against the Mafia then spread to KGB. It is through this fight that he led the stony man organization, gained membership of the able team, phoenix force, Hal Brognola, Jack Grimaldi, April Rose and the bear. After fighting the Mafia, KGB joined his hit list by destroying a team he led: Stony man. These made him single handedly fight against it a move that led to his conviction for murder. The murder was framed.
