Larry Belmont was a prominent District Attorney serving New York City during the Prohibition era of the 1930s.

During his time in office, he concentrated a great deal of effort towards compiling information against racketeers and bootleggers – a career that placed himself and his daughter, Dian, at great peril on several occasions. In 1938, Larry became involved in a case involving the kidnapping of Dian's socialite friend, Catherine van der Meer. Belmont worked alongside his close colleagues Judge Thomas Schaffer and police commissioner Irving Davis in compiling evidence against the mysterious abductor – a foe who called himself the Tarantula. Belmont possessed critical information linking the Tarantula attacks to the prominent Goldman family – an allegedly reformed family of bootleggers. During the time, Larry met the strange mystery man known as the Sandman.
