Origin

Eliot Franklin was originally born in Orlando, Florida. He started his career by joining Ringmaster's Circus of Crime as a clown of sorts. He would use a cane and juggling balls as his weapons.

Circus of Crime

Whenever the Circus of Crime acted without the presence of Ringmaster, Eliot would take the mantle as the leader of the circus, though this only lasted for short stints.

Griffin

Dude? Not cool!

Approached in prison by

General Ryker

, Franklin signed up for his

Gamma Corps

without question, only needing to hear the name,

Hulk

. After attacking the Hulk several times during

World War Hulk

, Griffin was caught by Hulk and had both arms and both legs snapped. Being the only part of the Gamma Corps without a real reason to hate the Hulk, Hulk felt he had finally given him a reason.

Powers and Abilities

Griffin has increased strength and speed due to his Gamma Corps enhancements, which are based on those of

Harpy

. This means he can also fly, and has incredibly sharp talons on both feet - strong enough to pierce Hulk's skin. Griffin has also been seen spitting acid on several occasions.
