History: (Dark Claw Adventures#1 (fb) - BTS)
- Logan Wayne,
secretly known as the vigilante Dark Claw, loved Lady Talia, daughter
of the villain Ra's-A-Pocalypse.
(Dark Claw Adventures#1 (fb)/Dark Claw: The Animated Show - "The Legacy of Apocalypse") - Following a fierce sword fight, Dark Claw was forced to blow up Ra's-A-Pocalypse's helicopter with a bazooka in order to prevent him from releasing a virus that would kill all mutants on Earth. Ra's-A-Pocalypse's daughter Lady Talia blamed Dark Claw for the death of her father.
(Dark Claw Adventures#1) - Two years later, Dark Claw, in his Patch Malone guise,
was ambushed at a card game at Lenny's Bar and Grill
Assassins. After defeating them, he was driven to the Burrow by his

Cyber-Ninja Assassins had secretly implanted a bio-tracker in
Deducing that Lady Talia was behind
the attack, Dark Claw
activate a training program in the Danger Cave area
of the Burrow,
in which he defeated Life-Model
Decoys of his rogues gallery.
During the exercise, Lady Talia
infiltrated the Burrow,
having tracked Dark
Claw there using the bio-tracker implant, and tied up Sparrow. She then
attacked Dark Claw,
blaming him for the death of her father and stabbing Dark Claw in the
heart. Surviving due to his mutant healing factor, Dark Claw allowed her
to believe she had fatally injured him in order to get her guard down
and then convinced her to come to terms with her father's death. As a
crying Lady Talia
cared for the still-recovering Dark Claw in the Danger Cave, Sparrow asked if
someone could untie her.

Dark Claw's Burrow had a trophy room with a giant Canadian nickel, a bipedal dinosaur that resembled Devil Dinosaur and a Sparrow costume in a case that had presumably belonged to an earlier sidekick.
of Earth-97643 is older than Sparrow of
Earth-9602. The exact amount of years is unrevealed but she did seem
old enough to have a driver's license, as she drove Dark Claw's "Clawmobile"
(a name she gave the vehicle).
Dark Claw: The Animated Show was a fictional cartoon show within the Amalgam Universe, created by "Bruce Dini" and "Paul Timm" (amalgamations of Bruce Timm and Paul Dini). It aired on the Fox Bros. Network (an amalgamation of the Fox Network, which aired X-Men: The Animated Series and the Warner Bros. Network, which aired Batman: The Animated Series at the time Dark Claw Adventures#1 was made).
It was unclear if Earth-97643's Dark Claw was also a billionaire artist like his Earth-9602 counterpart.
The Dark Claw
Adventures story (Earth-97643) was confirmed to occur in a different
