Orphaned as a youth, the boy known even then as the Goon was raised in a carnival by his Aunt Kizzie. Working menial tasks in the carnival, the Goon's fortunes changed when gangster Boss Labrazio made the traveling show his hideout. Making friends with the tough-looking kid, Labrazio shared his book of clients and enemies with him.

When the police caught-up with Labrazio there was a shootout which cost Aunt Kizzie her life. She was shot by Labrazio while attempting to protect her nephew. The death of his beloved aunt sent the Goon into a murderous rage and he killed Labrazio. Later retrieving Labrazio's journal the Goon assumed the identity of the now-dead gangster's chief enforcer using the information to become a secret crime boss in an unnamed town.

In time, the Goon's position as Labrazio's enforcer also mandated that he become the town's chief protector from threats both man-made and supernatural, in effect making him as much a hero as a criminal.
