History[]

Steve Bogardus was a killer who had been captured by Green Arrow and Speedy. Sentenced to hang, he was reprieved when the hanging rope snapped. He conceived the idea of using ropes to aid him, and broke out of prison using a rope he had made from his cell mattress. He had plastic surgery to avoid being recognised, and studied the use of ropes. He then went on a crime spree using his new expertise. After defeating Green Arrow and Speedy on several occasions, the heroes eventually captured him and identified him as Bogardus. He was, once more, sent to be hanged.
