The ruler of the Pacific island nation of Ricca, the Claw is the ultimate villain, often called the God of Hate by his own people. The Claw came into power through numerous criminal activities, often leaving no trace of his actions and disappearing with the aid of his giant boring vehicle, which can tunnel through solid rock. He can make himself any size he wishes, towering over Manhattan when he first came to the U.S., where he would encounter his greatest foe - Daredevil a.k.a. Death Defying 'Devil. In fact, the Claw would team up with Adolf Hitler during the World War II to help destroy their common foe, Daredevil.
Over the years, the Claw faced a number of opponents, which included (in chronological order) - Jerry Morris, Major Carl Tarrant, Daredevil, the Ghost and Rocky X. The Ghost was the longest-running opponent of them all, fighting the Claw for twenty issues.
The 'Devil attacked Claw in his volcano base of operations and seemingly killed him.
After the War, it is believed the Claw is behind a world-wide terrorist organization "the Claw".
