Lou Monkton was a small-time hood, and a rival of crime businessman Nicholas Trask. Trask had framed Monkton for the murder of his bodyguard after Trask killed the man in a fit of rage.
Defense Criminal Attorney Jennifer Walters was working the case, and although she agreed that Monkton was not an upstanding citizen, she refused to let him go down for a murder she knew he didn't commit.
Jennifer started a rumour that she had hard evidence linking Trask to the murder, and to silence her, he sent three hitmen to kill her. Jennifer was shot in the back, but was saved by a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner (The Hulk).
The hitmen once again tried to kill Jennifer in her hospital room while she was recovering, causing her first transformation into The She-Hulk. She captured the hitmen and forced them to confess while the police were arresting them. Unfortunately, the statements were thrown out in court due to the fact they were under diress at the time of the confession.
Jennifer later visited the men in jail, and offered to drop both attempted murder charges against her, for their sworn testimony that Monkton was innocent of the muder of Trask's bodyguard.
The men agreed, and Monkton was freed of all charges.
