(Web of Spider-Man I#68/Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#7 (fb) - BTS) - Born albino, Lonnie Lincoln often felt like a freak growing up, being a black man in white skin, with a disfigured nose, damaged vocal cords that required he speak in only whispers, and filed pointed teeth (which he may have filed himself).
(Amazing Spider-Man VI#3 (fb)) - As a young albino child, Lonnie was frequently beat up at school who grew accustomed to being hungry and never being heard, so he stopped speaking. After a time, he filed his teeth to points, then began whispering to get people close enough to hear him, so that he could bite them. He bit the ear off a bully, then began taking from others as he aged.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#139 (fb) - BTS) - Lonnie Lincoln developed a reputation at Harlem High School for being a bully. He ran an "insurance" scam, beating kids up unless they paid him. The kids called him Tombstone, partly due to his appearance.

Tombstone gave her a fancy car as a gift, but she still wanted to be a super-villain. Over pancakes, he told her that she shouldn't wear a costume, and that a woman could not be an effective boss. He told Janice to go get a job if she wanted to work her way up as a criminal.
(Superior Foes of Spider-Man#7 (fb) ) - Five years after she got a job as a lawyer, Tombstone called Janice at her firm and reminded her that it was the anniversary of her first crime. He told her how proud he was of her.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#138 (fb) - BTS) - The Arranger, working for the Kingpin, hired Tombstone (who had a reputation as the "most feared hitman in the midwest"), to come to New York and watch Ronald Rayburn, a man on Wall Street who had powers to persuade others to do what he wanted.

In Battery Park, Robertson drew a gun on Tombstone, determined to arrest him, then he fired when Tombstone advanced on him, but Tombstone was wearing Kevlar. Tombstone then squeezed Robbie's back and left him lying there in the park.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#140) - Tombstone showed up at the hospital to taunt Robertson, who assumed he had a broken back. Hearing that Spider-Man was after him, Tombstone checked in with the Arranger, who was keeping Rayburn sedated there.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#151) - When Spider-Man showed up at Robertson's prison window, Robertson refused to tell the hero about Tombstone, as Tombstone eavesdropped in the next cell. Later, Tombstone influenced the guards into turning away while he and his thugs in prison threatened Robertson in the prison lobby.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#152) - Tombstone sent a few prisoners against Bruiser, who fought back and defeated them all. As Bruiser was taken to solitary, he warned Tombstone not to touch Robertson while he was gone.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#153) - For weeks, Tombstone watched Bruiser train Robertson in the gym. One night, Tombstone and his men, including Armand, staged an attack on Bruiser, shooting him with a nail gun to the heart.

Tombstone got the keys and entered the cell, where Bruiser, despite being wounded, traded blows with the villain.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#155 (fb) - BTS) - Tombstone forced Robertson to lure Spider-Man to the jail, where he told Robertson to inject the hero with an experimental virus in a syringe.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#157) - Tombstone gave Robertson a subtle threat, then told him they needed to talk soon, now that the leg was healed up. Later, Tombstone attacked Robertson, telling him he planned to kill him now that he was healed. Robertson got a punch in then ran into the corn fields.

Bleeding, Tombstone soon joined up with Hammerhead and Chameleon.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#161) - With chauffeur Roscoe, Hammerhead drove Tombstone back to the prison, where Robertson was receiving a full pardon inside. Hammerhead reminded Tombstone that he was a wanted man, and suggested they make things right.

Tombstone fought Spider-Man in a semi-truck with closing interior walls, breaking the hero's ribs as he captured him.
(Amazing Spider-Man VI#3) - Spider-Man woke up in restraints, badly beaten, in a tunnel as Tombstone punched him even more, wanting to teach the hero a lesson. With Donnie at his side, Tombstone told Peter a story from his childhood. Tombstone planned to have his men dress like the Rose's gang and murder civilians so that super-heroes would go after the Rose. He then ordered Spider-Man killed.
(Amazing Spider-Man VI#4) - Tombstone had Robbie Robertson brought to him and they shared a drink over the joining of their families. Randy and Janice arrived thinking Robbie was in danger, but joined them for a drink. Tombstone then learned that Spider-Man had beaten up and defeated the Rose's entire army.
(Amazing Spider-Man VI#5) - Flanked by White Rabbit, Tombstone met with the other criminal heads and denied rumors that he was working with Spider-Man. After having brunch with Janice, Randy, and Robbie, Tombstone got a visit from Spider-Man in his home and they agreed, through a series of threats, to a stand-off, but Digger had also attacked White Rabbit, destroying some of Tombstone's products.
(Spider-Verse Unlimited Infinity Comic#24-25 - BTS) - Tombstone and his men robbed Oscorp.
(Amazing Spider-Man VI#19 (fb) - BTS) - Tombstone sent White Rabbit and Kareem to sell some acquired super-villain tech.
(Daredevil VII#14 - BTS) - Tombstone tried selling guns to Hammerhead, but the new Kingpin (Butch Fisk) intervened and stole the guns.
Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Alex Saviuk & Keith Williams.
Tombstone may be one of Marvel's most consistent villains. His appearance, powers, and motivations have remained relatively unchanged over the last 30 years, and he shows up pretty often. He is a power-hungry mob boss who is ruthless and deadly, unforgiving and lethal. He makes big bids for power, takes impossible assignments for cash, and has a twisted sense of justice. He loves basically no one except himself and his daughter.
Marvel Knights: Spider-Man II#3 may not have been in continuity, or the Tombstone presented here may have been some sort of illusion or hallucination.
(Marvel Knights: Spider-Man II#3 (fb) - BTS) - Growing up, Lonnie thought the world revolved around him and that he was the hero of his own story, destined for greatness.
(Marvel Knights: Spider-Man II#3) - Aboard a submarine, Spider-Man faced off against villains who seemed overwhelmed by his own fears. Tombstone cried about once thinking he was the most important person before realizing other people felt the same way.
Markus Raymond added Tombstone's cameos in Captain America I#413, Alias#26, Dark Reign: Cabal#1/3 and Punisher VIII#4.
Tombstone has profiles in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#7 (December, 1989), Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition#14 (1992), All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z#11 (January, 2007) and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC#12 (2009).
Profile by Chadman.
Tombstone should not be confused with:
(Daredevil V#25) - A bartender loyal to the Kingpin, Freddy called Kingpin to inform him that Tombstone was sitting at his bar. At Kingpin's instruction, Freddy gave Tombstone a rocket launcher. Days later, Tombstone took another call from Fisk in Freddy's bar.
(Daredevil I#308) - Gary, a man working for Justin Hammer in Las Vegas, disobeyed orders, wanting to try out his new energy gun. He initiated a fight with the Hand, only to be slashed open, then Tombstone killed the ninja.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#139 (fb) - BTS) - Ozzy Montana was a crime-boss in Philadelphia who was murdered by Tombstone, then left in the trunk of his own car.
