The Black Glove is a criminal organization of wealthy hedonists lead by Doctor Hurt.  They meet at-least once a year to place bets the deaths of a third party.


The Black Glove was lead (and quite possibly founded) by the immortal satanist Doctor Simon Hurt.  They made bets on human lives, performed human sacrifices to worship Barbatos, and lived by the laws of the Religion of Crime.  Much of the ranks of the team is made up of dictators and amoral billionaires who share the facade of a group of incredibly rich people who throw outrageous parties, but the precise nature of the parties are shrouded in secrecy.
