Arrears in Science (flashback)
The Guild of Calamitous Intent
Jonas Venture Sr.
Laugh Riot was a friend and ally of Red Death and his other villainous associates back in 1987 (Hate-Bit, Mr. Fahrenheit, Stab Girl, and Vendata). As of that year, their clique thought themselves young and upcoming talent for the Guild of Calamitous Intent, meeting regularly at a diner in New York City and dreaming of a time when the Guild could re-emerge from the underground.
They planned an unsanctioned arch upon Jonas Venture Sr. by infiltrating and hijacking Gargantua-1. Thanks to Vendata's strategic mastery, the villains knew (almost) everybody aboard the space station would be together for Movie Night, when they planned to take over. However, the plan went south when somebody anonymously opened the main cargo bay doors, sucking most of the people aboard the Gargantua-1 into the vacuum of space and killing them. Laugh Riot was among the death toll.
