|Born||15 April 1959|
|Affiliation||Zucco crime family|
Zucco was born to an Italian-American and English-American family, and was the nephew of mob boss Arnold Stromwell. He became an independent gang boss later on, and forced people to pay him to prevent property damage. In 1984, when the owner of Haley's Circus refused to pay the protection money, Zucco sabotaged the acrobat ropes, resulting in the deaths of three of the four "Flying Graysons", with the surviving ten year-old Dick Grayson swearing vengeance. Vigilante "The Batman" hunted Zucco, but failed to catch him, saving Grayson from drowning while in pursuit of him.
In 1993, the Batman broke up a sabotage ring run by Zucco, and found out from his minion Ferris Dolan that he worked for a "Billy Marin", Zucco's alias. The Batman tracked Zucco down to an abandoned amusement park, where he picked off his minions. Grayson, now under the alias "Robin" and aiding the Batman, aided the Batman in capturing him. Grayson wanted to kill Zucco, but against his innermost desires, he let the NYPD take him in.
