Richard Stanton was motivated by a personal tragedy to dress up as Madam Fatal in order to infiltrate criminal gangs and bring them to justice while trying to track down his kidnapped daughter. For several years, he looked for her, and when he located the kidnapper, it was revealed that Stanton's daughter was still alive.

Stanton cut off all ties to his previous life when he became Madam Fatal, except for keeping his pet parrot, Hamlet. He briefly had two allies who helped out during cases, Tubby White and Scrappy Nelson, who formed the Sure Fire Detective Agency.

Note: Madam Fatal's existence had transferred to the Post-Crisis/New Earth, but was revealed to have died in unknown circumstances.
