I'm feeling too lazy to get up and actually look, but didn't Mosley's Mouse, a definite psycho, appear before Pike? And as far as it goes, is Pike really any more psycho than Hawk? I'd even say Pike has a strong sense of morality. He's just very willing to use massive firepower in making bad people pay with extreme prejudice.
