History: The Black Fox is a jewel thief who has had a long criminal career both in the United States and in Europe. Now elderly, the Black Fox seeks to commit one final and extremely profitable theft of series of thefts so that he can finance a luxurious retirement for himself on the French Riviera.

Unfortunately for the Black Fox, each of his several attempts at such a robbery have failed due to unforeseen turns of events that involve him with other costumed fighter Spider-Man. The Black Fox first crossed paths with Spider-Man after the Fox was captured by the Red Ghost who then forced the Black Fox to commit robberies for him. Spider-Man confronted the Black Fox and got him to tell him about the Red Ghost's activities. Spider-Man let the Black Fox go free and left to find and defeat the Red Ghost instead.

Later, still attempting to commit his last successful robberies, the Black Fox found himself pursued by both Spider-Man and the firm of Silver Sable International. Feeling sorry for the Fox, Spider-Man again let him escape, but deprived him of his most recent ill-gotten gains.

Still later, the Black Fox's plans were again ruined when his fiancé, André Bouillon, was murdered by the costumed assassin Chance. Months later, Spider-Man foiled the Black Fox's theft of a jeweled chalice, but again let him go free.

However, the Black Fox still persists in trying to commit the spectacular robbery of his dreams

Strength Level: The Black Fox possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. Hence, his strength is remarkable for an elderly man.

Known Superhuman Powers: None

Abilities: The Black Fox is a highly skilled trained athlete. Although due to his age he is no longer as proficient as he once was in his athletic skill, he is still astonishingly agile for an elderly man. He can still swing on lines from one rooftop to another and scale the side of building in the fashion of a human fly. He apparently has little skill at hand-to-hand combat.

Paraphernalia: The Black Fox carries a weapons pack, which contains smoke grenades and flash grenades. The flash grenades can blind an opponent for several moments, long enough for the Black Fox to make an escape.

The Black Fox carries a length of strong rope for swinging from buildings. He uses a custom-made glass cutter for cutting through panes of glass. He employs a sophisticated electronic device that can neutralize most burglar detection devices.
