Danny Estacado was a host of The Darkness. He was the son of Roberto Estacado and Adrienne Estacado and is the father of Jackie Estacado and Capris Castiglione. He was a hitman for hire among New York's organized crime families.


Danny's hits were always messy, inhuman even. He reveled in the power the Darkness gave him. He was described to be a violent, heroin-addicted lunatic.[1] And his taste for hookers ensured his reign as Darkness wielder a short one. It's unknown who the woman, he got pregnant was, but it was when she was in labor that Danny lost his power, and was gunned down in the alley.[2]
