Travis Butler started his criminal killing a cop, and did hard time for it. When he got out, he visited Cuts Too, a local bar The Punisher previously had destroyed. While there, his friend Mikey Watts brought out the Stilt-Man rig he had stolen. Thinking he was the best criminal in the group, Travis pulled a gun on his friends, intending to take the rig for himself. Luckily for them, Sal, the bartender was also packing heat, and together they forced Travis to leave.
Unfortunately for Travis, The Punisher had been listening to him spout off about killing a cop, and killed him as he left the bar.
