Bio: Roderick Krupp, a serial killer who buried his victims alive while telling them macabre stories, became known as Digger for his modus operandi . Living in a decrepit Los Angeles, California mansion known as the Tower of Shadows, he was eventually contacted by the vigilante the Shroud and recruited for the supervillain team the Night Shift. The team made the mansion its headquarters. Krupp was eventually apprehended by Mockingbird of the superhero team the Avengers.
Although Marvel.com gives Digger's skin colour as officially green, throughout the character's existence a certain number of panels — and the Marvel.com image itself — have seen him coloured blue. Many of his early appearances give him standard, caucasian skin.
Notes: Originally designed as one of the hosts of Tower of Shadows and its sister title, Chamber of Darkness, both beginning in 1969, Digger played a role similar to that of Tales from the Crypt 's Crypt Keeper of the 1950s EC Comics and later HBO television series. Providing a panel or two of introductory material leading into and usually closing the story itself, Digger appeared in the first three issues of both Tower of Shadows and Chamber of Darkness.
Digger returned with other lesser-known characters in Captain America #329 (May 1987).
