- ―Axel, in regards to the news report of Jason Voorhees' "death"
Axel Burns is a character in the film Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, in which he is portrayed by Bruce Mahler and he could be the brother of Roy Burns and uncle of Joey Burns since they both have the same last name.
He is the 22nd victim of Jason Voorhees.
BiographyEditWhile Axel is working (and snacking) in the Wessex County Morgue one night in 1984, the body of mass murderer Jason Voorhees, who had killed nearly two dozen people in the span of a few days before being brought down, is dropped off by a pair of paramedics. Wandering off, Axel finds Nurse Robbie Morgan and convinces her to meet him in the cold room, where Axel brings Jason's body a little bit later. When Morgan shows up, Axel scares her, but quickly makes up for it, making out with Morgan. As the two are about to have sex, Morgan is scared when Jason's hand falls off the stretcher and hits her. When Morgan decides to simply leave and not finish what they started, the disappointed Axel places Jason's body in cold storage (not noticing the killer is breathing or that the cabinet door failed to close all the way). Sitting down to watch female aerobics videos and sip some coffee, Axel accidentally burns himself, seconds before Jason appears and slits his throat with a surgical hacksaw before twisting his head around. Axel's body is hidden by Jason afterwards.
