Little is known of Swope's early life and background, or how he became so embittered towards American society as to stoop to bio-terrorism. What is known is that, on an occasion in which the costumed heroes Superman and Batman were appearing together on a radio talk show, Swope called in with threats to unleash deadly anthrax germs on Gotham City unless his outlandish demands were met. Superman and Batman were able to find him and stop him from carrying out this threat.
- This version of Anthrax, including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse saving all the alternate realities though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
