History: (Strange Tales III#1 (fb)) - During his plan to destroy the United Nations building with a powerful cannon mounted on his Sky Dragon, the Yellow Claw was opposed by Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. As Fury fought his way through the Sky Dragon, the Claw sent four of his Mecha-Rodents to destroy him, but Fury wrapped his explosive uniform around one of the rats, causing it to destroy itself when it tried to shoot through the fabric. Fury then used parts from the destroyed rodent to create a feedback signal that destroyed the other Mecha-Rodents.

Comments: Created by Kurt Busiek and Ricardo Villagran.
