The Ani-Men were a group of criminals hand-picked by the Organizer to orchestrate a crime wave that would benefit his reform party. Their original line-up consisted of Frog-Man, Cat-Man, Bird-Man, and Ape-Man. They were defeated by Daredevil who later fought them several more times.
The second line-up, who actually referred to themselves as the Unholy Three (a name previously used by their three predecessors when working without Frog-Man), consisted of Ape-Man, Bird-Man, and Cat-Man.
Recruited by Death-Stalker, fought Daredevil. Ape-Man and Cat-Man were later slain by Death-Stalker; Bird-Man escaped this fate, having already been captured, but was subsequently slain by Scourge (he has since been resurrected by the Hood).
The third (and current) line-up consists of Giraffe-Man, Great Horned Owl-Man, Pig-Man, and Rabbit-Woman. In their only known appearance they attacked a modeling convention in Milwaukee citing animal rights issues as their motive. They blamed the modeling industry for everything from animal testing of cosmetics to the wearing of furs. The Great Lakes Avengers showed up on the scene to fight the Ani-Men, but were beating to it by the Avengers who quickly dispatched the criminals.
Their current whereabouts are unknown.
Later, a new group of criminals surfaced wearing the Ani-Men costumes of Ape-Man, Cat-Man and Frog-Man and robbed an armored car.
