Turnbuckle was a minor character on The Venture Bros. He appeared only in a flashback narrated by The Monarch to explain how the Equally Matched Aggression Level system came into existence.

Character History[edit | edit source]

Sometime before 1966, during the time of the Original Team Venture, Turnbuckle was a clueless newbie villain who foolishly thought he could challenge Jonas Venture Sr. and the Original Team Venture.

Turnbuckle kidnapped young Rusty Venture and used him to provoke a fight. The Action Man handily beat Turnbuckle to a bloody pulp with his pistol, but Turnbuckle couldn't leave well enough alone. The villain cussed out The Action Man, provoking The Action Man to fatally shoot him in the head.

It was this mismatch in power levels that motivated The Guild of Calamitous Intent to match villains and heroes according to their corresponding power levels.
