MAX I#10 (fb)) - In 1978, Robert Fragosi graduated from Quantico and
joined the FBI. As an FBI agent, he was sent after
the Wolverine (Logan), a
famous killer of only criminals, whom the FBI had left alone up until a
regime change in the Bureau had them trying to
bring him down. At one point, Fragosi surveyed Logan personally with no
Logan had enhanced senses capable of informing him of being watched.
Logan easily gave Fragosi the slip and killed the men he had been
Fragosi was disgraced
and spiraled into drug and
alcohol addiction, which cost him his position at the Bureau as well as
his marriage. Throughout the 1980s, he used his knowledge of law
enforcement and crime to become a successful bank robber, even making
number nine on the Bureau's most wanted list before his capture. Eventually arrested by the FBI, Fragosi was sent to
prison, where, due to his former career in law enforcement, he suffered
By 2013, after decades of imprisonment, Fragosi broke out with an unidentified prisoner. Staying in a little town located between Miami and Las Vegas, Frisco settled in an abandoned house, where he killed and buried his fellow escaped prisoner. He lived there for a long time under the name of Vincent Briscoe.
MAX I#9) - One month later, Robert ate soup at a local diner when
had lost his memory, entered and saved Robert from a group of thugs.
Recognizing Logan, Robert drove after him in a car. Logan quickly
realized he was being followed, which he wasn't in the mood for, and
ran the car off the road. Upon checking who was driving the car, Logan
realized the car had earlier failed to stop for him when he was broken
and that the driver was the man he helped out in the diner. Logan
pulled Robert from the vehicle moments before the ruptured gas
tank exploded. After checking Robert's driver's license, Logan found
the name Vincent Briscoe and headed to the nearest town to get
"Vincent" medical help. Robert soon regained consciousness and told
Logan not to take him for medical assistance, and he attempted to
intimidate Logan by revealing his knowledge of Logan's ability to heal.
(Wolverine MAX I#10) - Unaware of Logan's memory loss, Robert threatened to turn Logan in to authorities if Logan didn't do as he was told, including not going to a hospital. Robert then directed Logan to his home, where Logan smelled a corpse and "Vincent" finally revealed himself as "Bobby" Fragosi, claiming that he and Logan once knew one another in the 1970s.
Logan convinced Fragosi to tell him what he knew about their shared histories and Robert detailed how they met in the late 1970s while Fragosi was assigned to capture Logan. From what Fragosi told him, Logan learned that in 1978, he not yet gained his retractable claws. Logan tried to get more information about the origin of his claws from Fragosi but Fragosi told Logan that he didn't know anymore, as he'd only busted out of prison a month beforehand. Suspecting Fragosi knew more than he was saying, Logan nonetheless had to cut things short when he heard the police approaching the building and Logan stole a car to escape. Fragosi wanted the two of them to work together, combining their resources and knowledge but Logan instead questioned Fragosi as to the identity of the the body rotting in Fragosi's house. Learning that the corpse was someone that Fragosi had escaped prison with, Logan was disgusted with the man and proceeded to decapitate Fragosi with his claws, leaving his body for the coyotes in the Mojave Desert.
