One of the first super-villains to be granted his own series, The Claw is best remembered for his battles with Daredevil and the Silver Streak but in his own series, he also came with his own built-in nemesis, The Ghost. This is credited to the multi-talented Bob Wood who went on to be a bit of villain himself (look him up).
