History: (Yellow Claw#1/4) - Rocky Miller was a criminal. He was condemned and was sent to San Quintino (San Quentin?) to serve 20 years. The Yellow Claw examined him looking in his "magic sphere" and decided that Miller suited his purposes.
Miller was visited by an old man (the Yellow Claw in
disguise) who gave him some cigarette. Miller smoked the unmarked cigarette,
which contained a drug that sent Miller into suspended
animation, a status resembling death.
The day after, he was found "dead" in his cell. The Yellow Claw sent von Voltzmann to ask for the corpse.
Once in the Yellow Claw hideout, Miller was revived. Miller was sent to steal a bag but he was followed by Jimmy Woo. Miller assaulted the agent Pierson outside Amalgamated Chemical and took the bag. Jimmy Woo stopped him but Von Voltzmann captured Woo.
Once in the hideout, Miller was informed by Woo that he was helping the Yellow Claw in stealing some state secrets and that the Claw was an enemy of the U.S. Miller changed his idea, and smashed the bag on Voltzmann's face, but the ex-Nazi criminal shot him. Von Voltzmann fled without the bag, Miller confessed to Woo that he did not want to betray his country, then died.
