History: (Season's Beatings#1/4 (fb) - BTS) - Larry showed up a Twin Palms Mall for a contract job as a mall Santa but several others also showed up for the job and a fight ensued, with the winner intending to take the job. When another man got the job, Larry with the other mall Santas waited until the man finished his shift but the man, who had a criminal history, was ultimately killed.
(Season's Beatings#1/4) - When Detective March took
over the investigation into the mall Santa's murder, Larry and the
other potential mall Santas were taken into custody as the Avengers'
Kate Bishop and Kid Omega arrived at Twin Palms Mall to assist in the
investigation but he and the other mall Santas refused to talk. Hawkeye
eventually convinced Kid Omega to telepathically enter the mall Santas'
minds to determine which of them should be free to go and when Kid
Omega entered the first mall Santa's mind, causing the mall Santa to
collapse, Larry ran to watch the fallen man as he appeared to be having
a seizure. Determining that it wasn't right to have their minds invaded
and that the police hated everyone, including mall Santas, Larry asked
the other mall Santas what they could do about the situation since
Hawkeye was an Avenger. One of the other mall Santas convinced Larry
and the others to fight back but he was soon downed by Kid Omega
entering his mind as well, prompting Larry and the remaining two mall
Santas to attack Hawkeye, running over Detective March to get to her.
Hawkeye fired back, hitting one of the Santas with a boxing glove arrow
and causing him to reveal himself as a disguised Skrull, much to the
shock of Larry.
(Season's Beatings#1) - After being allowed to go
free, Larry and another mall Santa went dumpster diving to look for
Christmas presents. The other Santa soon found a gift, still wrapped,
and gave it to Larry, who opened it and was pleased to find a
Spider-Ham piggy bank and a note that the gift was from Squirrel Girl
