Tribune (real name: Buck Ralston) is an actor whose far right political bent leaned to the extreme. Ralston used his fame to speak to the public about his quantitative perception that America was being destroyed by the unpatriotic youth, usually terms as either pinkos, commies, or hippies in Ralston's own lexicon of terms. He used his fortune to invest in his costumed identity of Tribune -- a costumed judge/jury/executioner who dispensed laws according to his warped ideals using a gavel that could fire energy that put its victims in a death like state.
Tribune traveled to New York to dispense the "New York Three", three teenage protesters who were accused of bombing the New York Hilton.
Tribune's involvement landed him into a conflict with Daredevil, who foiled Tribunes plan. Tribune then faked his own death in a helicopter explosion while making a get away.
He was last seen back in California barking his ideals in his civilian guise, with none the wiser of his activities as Tribune.
