Jim Tate was a successful weapons designer, until he lost his job. Trying to keep up his former luxurious life-style for his wife and step-son, he turned to an old shady friend, Istivan Hegedesh, for help. The only job Hegedesh had involved theft, which Tate accepted.

He stole several mechanical weapons, until he was stopped by Batman. He turned state's evidence against Hegedesh.
