During World War II, while most Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps, one man known as Gojo was granted immunity by the US government due to his past assistance to the United States in 1942. He resided in Los Angeles, and unknown to authorities was a loyal spy for Imperial Japan. From his mansion he trained subversives in the art of assassination and martial arts until he was stopped by the Sub-Mariner. In 1945, the city put on a War Bond drive and put a captured Nazi buzz-bomber on display. Imperial Japanese spies attempted to steal the bomber, but were stopped by the Destroyer.

Amos Crawley (Earth-616)
Amos Crawleys was Stuart Clarke's lawyer and financial manager. He berated Clarke for the childish display, noting that he was in debt to the government, his sub-contractors, and to Crawley, and said that if he'd sold out two years before he could have been a rich man, but now he had to declare bankruptcy. Clarke became furious, noting that he had put his heart and soul into Clarke Futuristics and that it was Crawley's fault because he had been handling his finances and had not prepared for the recession. Clarke then fired Crawley, announcing that he'd find a way to pay back his creditors.
Having identified Clarke with the armored marauder named Rampage, Crawley contacted the police, who soon appeared outside of Clarke Futuristics and demanded his surrender. After Rampage was injured in the final battle against the Champions, Crawley noted that Clarke had never had a chance to alter his power of attorney status for Clarke Futuristics, and he prepared to move swiftly, sell the company, pay off Clarke's creditors, and escape with a tidy fee for himself.

Jefferson Wolfe (Earth-616)
Jefferson Wolfe was Tyler Lang's companion. Although, he was infected by AIDS and transmitted the disease to Tyler, he was still alive and, ironically, in better shape. Tyler's father sent his men to kill him for revenge, but he was saved by Falcon. Mr. Lang then sent Speedfreek to him, but Jefferson was once again saved by the Hulk, aided by Rick Jones and Jim Wilson. At Tyler's funeral, he approached Mr. Lang and recorded all his threats, in order to send the tape over to the police.
Mr. Lang hired Speedfreek to kill Ralph Baldone, paying him with money and a drug called 'snap'. He also hired him to kill Jefferson Wolfe, who transmitted AIDS to Lang's son, Tyler. Mr. Lang had previously sent his men, but they were stopped and defeated by Falcon. At Tyler's funeral, Mr. Lang was approached by Jefferson Wolfe, who recorded all his threats and made sure that the Hulk and Rick Jones send the tape over to the police.
