The Fox is one of the members of the Terrible Trio.

Warren Lawford was an ambitious criminal and inventor. With two of his colleagues, Gunther Hardwicke and Armand Lydecker banded together as the Terrible Trio. Each of them wore business suits accompanied by masks suggestive of their personality and/or specified talents. Lawford became the Fox, while Hardwicke and Lydecker became known as the Shark and the Vulture, respectively. The Terrible Trio began committing crimes in Gotham City, but were foiled on two occasions by the efforts of Batman and Robin.[1][2]

The Fox and his allies later relocated to Portsmouth City where they established the investment firm of Fisk, Shackley and Volper. One of their chief clients was Praeda Industries, a corporation responsible for the creation of the A39 steroid. The Fox's involvement with Praeda earned the attention of the new Doctor Mid-Nite, whose unique gifts were spawned from the A39 drug. Mid-Nite exposed the Terrible Trio's illegal schemes and each of them were sentenced to a total of 800 years in prison. A short time later, the Shark turned on his former partners and attempted to kill them after faking his own death. The Fox and the Vulture replaced Hardwicke (also known as Shackley) in the Terrible Trio with Warren White - the Great White Shark.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
