History:
(Daredevil I#222 (fb) - BTS) - Growing up in the New Jersey swamplands with his brothers Burley, Harbor, and Drawley (who was mentally ill), raised by their mother. Junius Mudd left to join the army, then developed a reputation as a thug and an assassin. His mother died while he was gone.

(Daredevil I#222 (fb) - BTS) - The Polish government hired him to fly to Europe and follow defector scientist Dr. Ephesus Sadd back to America, where Mudd was to kill Sadd.

(Daredevil I#222) - On the flight back from Dublin to New York, Junius drew a gun and tried to hijack the plane to the small airfield near his home, having second thoughts about killing Sadd. A girl on the plane, Glorianna O'Breen, leapt at him, causing the gun to go off, and it pierced Sadd's container of fear gas, which then spread through the plane.

(Daredevil I#222 - BTS) - The plane crashed in New Jersey. Mudd took Glori and Sadd at gunpoint back to his home to meet his brothers.

(Daredevil I#222) - Junius told his brothers how he realized how valuable Sadd was and now planned to auction him off to the highest bidder, but first he wanted to give Drawley a gift: Glorianna as a bride. He planned to kill Glori right after the honeymoon, he said. They dressed Glori in their mother's old wedding dress and untied Sadd so he could officiate the ceremony. Sadd unleashed fear gas, driving the Mudd brothers into a panic. When Daredevil and Black Widow attacked, the brothers lashed out, hallucinating, but they were all swiftly defeated.
