Jack the Ripper was an alias for an unidentified serial killer who murdered multiple women in London in 1888.

It is possible that Jack was one of the many aliases used by Vandal Savage during his long lifetime, although no such evidence existed to support this theory.[2]



In 1979, Mordru sang his own version of a song called That's Entertainment!, which mentioned Jack the Ripper in its' lyrics.

The song referred to young people that had the desire to meet "pretty girls on the street." With the intention of killing them, or as the song said: "with a plan, that Jack the Ripper began."[3]
