Darby was a member of the biker gang The Skull-Crushers. The leader of their gang, Snake, accused his former girlfriend and Skull-Crushers member Ruth, who had ridden with the gang for about a year, of ripping off the gang of a thousand bucks (the story line was written in the early '70s). Ruth knew that Snake had ripped the gang off himself and that he would kill to keep the secret, so she went on the run, from St. Louis all the way down to the Florida Everglades where she met Richard Rory.
The gang found her and her new friend Richard there in the Everglades and as their leader attacked, Richard accused Snake of stealing the money. Skull-Crushers member, French, overheard and after Snake chased Ruth into the swamp, they searched Snake's bike, finding heroin that he secretly planned to sell without telling the gang.
In an confrontation with the Man-Thing, Snake was accidentally killed and the gang made good with Ruth and Rory. As French led them out of the Everglades, planning to go to New Orleans, the surviving members of the gang were attacked by the first Foolkiller (Ross Everbest) who was looking for Richard Rory. When they wouldn't tell him where Richard was, The Foolkiller murdered all the remaining members of the gang.
