History: (Uncanny Tales I#6/2) - Mark wooed Claudia, pretending to be a big businessman by flaunting the cash he acquired from mugging people. He wanted to retire as a mugger, but after he and Claudia were wed they spent a month in Paris, and he needed more money. Mark kept resolving to quit his life of crime, but Claudia either asked for more expensive things, or she gave Mark expensive presents and he felt the need to return the favor. One night while out mugging Mark was stabbed in the back. As he lay dying he saw his murderer was Claudia, who was also out robbing people, and didn't recognize her husband in the dark.

Comments: Created by an unnamed writer and Sam Kweskin.

As with many 1950's and 1960's Marvel monster stories, this story is not confirmed as part of Earth-616 continuity, but there's nothing to exclude it either.
