Tony Masters was gifted with mnemonic power which he discovered when he was eight years old. He was watching a cowboy cartoon where a farmer lassoed a cow, which he recreated, but better. At thirty-one years old he joins SHIELD. After a mission in Symkaria he found a memory serum which he injected himself with, becoming a criminal and forgetting his wife Mercedes. Later, he joined an unknown organization and clashed with the Avengers.
