Anton once was a rebel trying to liberate south American country Delvadia from a brutal dictatorial regime but was banished by his rebel comrades because he was considered too violent and unpredictable.

The army forces of the fascist government, however, welcomed him with open arms. He changed his name to Tarantula and was given the task of wiping out the rebellion but even the government found him too violent and unstable and decided to hunt him down. He fled his country and headed for New-York where he began his life as an organized criminal.
