Briefly possessed superhuman agility
Along with Ape-Man, Bird-Man, and Frog-Man, Towshend Horgan was recruited by a man named the Organizer to form the Ani-Men. Horgan had what was described as "feline agility". The Organizer was secretly Abner Jonas, a candidate for mayor of New York City, who sent the Ani-Men on missions to undermine the current administration. Daredevil defeated them and the Ani-Men and Organizer all went to prison. Later, Ape-Man, Bird-Man, and Cat-Man formed a team called the "Unholy Three" and worked with the Exterminator.
Ape-Man, Bird-Man, and Cat-Man later rejoined the Ani-Men, and the Ani-Men went to work for Count Nefaria. Nefaria's scientists submitted the unwilling Ani-Men to processes that gave them superhuman powers and animal-like forms, although eventually they reverted back to normal.
Nefaria sent the four original Ani-Men to kill Tony Stark, however the Spymaster had intended to kill Stark with a bomb, which killed the Ani-Men instead.
