Yellow Claw has been alive for many years, his exact date of birth unknown. His past is shrouded in mystery, including his rise to power, creation of his criminal empire, and his reason for his attempts to destroy America and control the world. His first known appearances after WWII reveal the time when his grandneice, Suwan, fell in love with the Claw’s arch-enemy, FBI agent Jimmy Woo. Suwan and Woo (possibly with help from other 1950’s heroes) defeated Claw’s schemes and he fled his base in America to return to China, but not before placing Suwan in suspended animation as punishment.

In relative recent years, Claw was seen transferring the spirit of ancient Egyptian Princess Fanle-tamen into Suwan, fusing their personalities in an attempt to create a suitable heir to his criminal empire. Then, when clashing with SHIELD, Suwan shot the Claw in revenge for her time in suspended animation. Claw destroyed Suwan, but gave up his success against SHEILD when forced to flee.

Claw has been known to engage in many shady dealings and power trips, including engaging in a contest of might to win world conquest-powers from the so-called Black Lama, trying to elimate war on earth by taking control of the planet by destroying New York City in a tidal wave, and seeking a heir from a harem of women who would fight his brothers for supremacy. In all cases, various heroes of the Marvel Universe triumphed over him, but the Claw managed to fake his own death or otherwise escape each time.
