Baron Von Tug was one of the Nazi's greatest fighter pilots during World War II. When his plane was shot down, his hand was crushed and replaced with a vulture-like claw. He also had scars on the left side of his face and appeared to be blind in his left eye. His clawed hand seemed to possess strength that bordered on superhuman. The Vulture's Claw battled Hood on several occassions.
