First Appearance: Web of Spider-Man #36
Lonnie Lincoln was born an albino in Harlem. He was mocked for his affliction by all but one boy, Joe "Robbie" Robertson, whom he bullied in a twisted vision of "friendship". After High School, Lincoln and Robertson separated. Lincoln filed his teeth to points and became a street fighter known as Tombstone, while Robertson was working for a local paper. Lincoln became a professional thug for a Philadelphia organized crime mob and executed Ozzy Montana, a local crime boss.
For twenty years, Robertson could not find the courage to testify against Tombstone. Tombstone himself was arrested a number of times but the witnesses always disappeared or changed their minds before testifying. But Robertson had saved a tape about his knowledge of Tombstone's past that ended in the hands of Peter Parker, a photographer working for Robertson. With Robertson's taped confession, Tombstone was sent to prison. However, Tombstone testified against Robertson, who was sent to jail as an accessory of murder. Ironically, Robertson and Tombstone shared the same block in jail.
Tombstone broke out of jail and took Robertson with him. He later planned to ambush Robertson at the Osborn Chemical Plant, but was found out by Spider-Man. Tombstone was shot by Robertson and fled into a room full of an experimental chemical, Diox-3, where he gained his superhuman abilities. He has since worked for the Kingpin and Hammerhead and has been a member of the Sinister Twelve.
