Paul Hazlett was an employee of Roxxon Oil who invented an anti-gravity generator. He was incensed, however, when he discoved the company had stolen his design and used it to equip the criminal Killer Shrike.
Hazlett created his own costume and set out on a criminal career of his own, naming himself the Raptor. He broke into a local millionaire's apartment to steal a valuable diamond, but was seen by the hero Moon Knight, who battled him. Moon Knight disabled Raptor's anti-gravity device and threatened to drop him to the ground, whereupon the Raptor surrendered to him.
