(March, 1988)



Lonnie Lincoln was born an albino in Harlem. He was mocked for his affliction by all but one boy, Joe "Robbie" Robertson, whom he bullied in a twisted vision of "friendship". What Lonnie thought was friendship was actually extorting Robertson, although he considered himself loyal to this "friend". However, Robertson revealed these extortions in the school paper.

After High School, Lincoln (who never really finished his studies) and Robertson separated. Lincoln filed his teeth to points and became a street fighter known as Tombstone, while Robertson was working for a local paper. Lincoln became a professional thug for a Philadelphia organized crime mob and executed Ozzy Montana, a local crime boss. One of Robertson's informers called Robertson with the location as it was happening but, when Robertson arrived, Tombstone had killed the informer and Robertson was terrified at the idea of facing Tombstone.

For twenty years, Robertson could not find the courage to testify against Tombstone. Tombstone himself was arrested a number of times but the witnesses always disappeared or changed their minds before testifying. Tombstone had such a reputation that he was hired by the Arranger and went to New York City to work for him. Tombstone recruited mutant Roland Rayburn, later known as Persuader.

Eventually, Robertson found the courage to confront Tombstone and saved a tape about his knowledge of Tombstone's past. Robertson agreed to meet Tombstone at Battery Park, where Robertson tried to convince Tombstone to acquiesce to a citizen's arrest. However, Tombstone physically overcame Robertson and broke his back. He would have killed Robertson but his twisted sense of friendship towards him forbade that action.

Robertson's tape ended in the hands of Peter Parker, a photographer working for Robertson. Tombstone threatened Parker's wife, Mary Jane Watson, trying to recover the tape. Parker, who was really the costumed crime-fighter Spider-Man, then fought Tombstone in Atlanta. Although Tombstone was stronger than Parker first had thought, Parker managed to defeat him. With Robertson's taped confession, Tombstone was sent to prison.

However, Tombstone testified against Robertson, who was sent to jail as an accessory of murder. Ironically, Robertson and Tombstone shared the same block in jail.

Tombstone broke out of jail and took Robertson with him. He later planned to ambush Robertson at the Osborn Chemical Plant, but was found out by Spider-Man. Tombstone was shot by Robertson and fled into a room full of an experimental chemical, Diox-3, where he gained his superhuman abilities. He has since worked for the Kingpin and Hammerhead and has been a member of the Sinister Twelve.

Notably, Robertson managed to legally get out of jail thanks to the actions of a friendly lawyer.
