Josef Ansell was the head of the Friends of New Germany, which strongly supports Nazi Germany and its Aryan racist ideology. Ansell created the Crime Master in abducting African-American minorities for Otto Octavius' experiments in using them to make mindless slaves. However, Ansell feared that Octavius' experiment would be exposed to the public due to the Crime Master's reputation being investigated by the federal authorities and the vigilante, the Spider-Man. Ultimately, Ansell decided to have Octavius' lab destroyed and all the prisoners killed. In extension, Ansell ordered Octavius to kill the Crime Master for being a liability to his organization.
