Biography

Lexmas

In 2006, he was paid by Lex Luthor to dig up dirt on Jonathan Kent during the campaign for Senator of Kansas. Lex met with Griff in a dark alley in Metropolis on Christmas Eve to discuss destroying Jonathan Kent while he was running for state senate. Lex hesitated and said he wanted 24 hours to decide if he wants to go down that path and before Griff would do anything, shortly after Lex was shot. After Lex recovered from surgery, Griff visited him and asked what his choice was. Lex decided to have Griff do what he had to in order to destroy Jonathan's chance at winning.

Fanatic

Griff did apparently find something on Jonathan that would destroy him in the polls, and gave Lex a call to arrange a meeting. However, Lex's father Lionel approached him first and bought the envelope containing this evidence. Griff looked confused when he gives it to Lionel who proceeds to burn it after glancing at the picture, preventing Lex from getting his hands on it. Griff later died and his body was found in Metropolis' infamous Suicide Slums where criminal activity was commonplace. After Lex heard the news, he questioned Lionel about it. Lionel shrugged off the accusation stating that it was a dangerous neighborhood. Lex was frustrated by Lionel's constant and complete refusal to support him.
