History

He was a member of the All-Star Squadron before retiring, and became a writer. He had a best selling novel, Altered Egos: The Mystery Men of World War II, published sometime in the 1970's. He went on to write many other novels, but none as successful as Altered Egos.

In his later years, Law lived in the city of Blüdhaven, in the same building as Richard Grayson known to some as the vigilante hero Nightwing. At one point, however, the flat was burned down by the villain Blockbuster in an attempt to ruin Nightwing's life. His successor, who tried to save him, arrived too late and John Law died in the blast, along with 21 other residents. However, his body was never recovered.

Abilities

The Tarantula possessed no super-abilities, but relied on several gimmicks and his quick wits. He was trained in hand-to-hand combat, as well as some acrobatics, and had a passing interest in stage make-up and stage magic. He used suction cups attached to the soles on his boots to allow him to walk up walls and hang from ceilings. He also used a "web-gun" which fired a string of fast-hardening nylon that could be used to swing from one anchored point to another and ensnare its victims.
