Taserface was a Ravager bounty hunter and a lieutenant in the Yondu Ravager Clan. In 2014, following Yondu's exile established by Stakar Ogord, Taserface led an uprising against Yondu for not living up to becoming a Ravager. Taserface, allying with Nebula had Yondu's faction of Ravagers executed, and imprisoned Yondu, Kraglin Obfonteri and Guardians Rocket Raccoon and Groot onto the Eclector. When they made their escape, Taserface was killed but not before he had tipped off the Sovereign, culminating in the Battle on Ego's Planet during which Udonta lost his life.
Taserface along with Yondu's faction of Ravagers went to the Iron Lotus to relax. Taserface watched as Stakar Ogord exiled Yondu for breaking the Ravager code. Right as Stakar left, Ayesha arrived to hire Udonta and his faction to hunt down the Guardians of the Galaxy who had stolen Anulax Batteries from them. Udonta took the job.
The Ravagers managed to track down the Milano to Berhert. After Rocket Raccoon managed to take down many of the Ravagers with his booby traps, Yondu got the upper hand on him with his Yaka Arrow. When Yondu decided to just return the batteries to the Sovereign instead of bringing in Rocket, Taserface turned on Yondu, saying he has gone soft. The Ravagers then turned on each other and were about to engage in a fight when Nebula shot Udonta in the head, destroying his fin and knocking him out.
- "I've waited a long time for this... What?"
"Sorry, I'm so sorry, I just keep imagining you waking up in the morning, looking in the mirror and in all seriousness to yourself saying 'You know what would be a really kick-ass name? Taserface!'."

Taserface and his newly loyal Ravagers then took Yondu Udonta along with Rocket Raccoon and Groot back to the Eclector in order to collect the bounty that the Kree Empire had placed on Udonta and then the Sovereign to collect Rocket and Groot's bounty. Any Ravager members that had sided with Udonta, including Tullk and Oblo were executed by being released into space.
Udonta, being subdued, watched as Taserface took control of the Ravagers and beat him up, claiming that his poor leadership is what led to his friend's deaths. When Rocket heard Taserface's name, he broke out laughing, telling him how ridiculous his name is, causing even Gef and the other Ravagers to mock him. Taserface put all three of them into a cell where he told Udonta he deserved everything that is happening to him as he broke the Ravager code.
Taserface was sleeping in Udonta's quarters when Come a Little Bit Closer, playing from Peter Quill's Walkman started blaring through the loudspeakers. Taserface quickly woke up and realized that Udonta had retrieved his prototype fin. He quickly warned the Ravagers and ordered them to find and kill Udonta and the Guardians. As Taserface was walking through the Eclector's halls, he ducked as Udonta's Yaka Arrow whizzed past him. He then grinned at a security camera while snarling that Udonta had missed when he sees that the arrow had struck a large pile of flammable materials, causing a explosion.
His body wracked by the explosion, Taserface crawled over to a monitor and called the Sovereign, telling a chambermaid, who was taking the call, the coordinates to Yondu Udonta and the Guardians of the Galaxy. He told her to inform Udonta that he was the one who tipped off the Sovereign and essentially sent him to his death. When he told them his name however, the Sovereign just broke out laughing. Taserface can only resignedly groan in defeat as he listened to the Sovereign laughing at his name just before an explosion breaks out, and destroys the lower half of the Eclector, killing Taserface.
