First Appearance: Captain America (vol. 1) #165 (Sep. 1973): "The Yellow Claw Strikes!"
Number of Appearances: 1
Defended or Helped by: Captain America
Occupation: security guard
Cliff was a security guard who was attacked by giant spiders controlled by the villain Yellow Claw.
Harv, Cliff and Rick were security guards who were on duty when giant spiders controlled by the villainous Yellow Claw attacked New York City. These three guards were terrified at first, but they rallied and helped Captain America battle the spiders, even getting "heavy artillery" from headquarters to do so.
Harv, Cliff and Rick were armed and wore uniforms that looked somewhat similar to police uniforms. But they were specifically identified as "guards" (not police) in panel 1 on page 11 in Captain America (vol. 1) #165.
Before this attack, however, Cliff was talking with fellow guard Harv. He said: "--anyway, Alice says those radio spots have got something, Harv. She says Cap's got too much power to be running around without anybody controlling him. Well, I told her about how he saved my whole outfit back in the Big One [WWII], but would she listen? No!"
