After their father was supposedly killed, toddler Max Cash grew up idolizing his big brother Cole( Grifter), while a rift grew between them over Max's acceptance of their mobster stepfather, whom Cole despised. When Cole entered the army and disappeared, Max began to emulate him, though the Del Gracci name was enough to keep him out of serious trouble. He became a firearms expert and a ladies man. When Cole resurfaced, he treated Max as a cheap imitation, a reputation Max has tried to shake without success. He has worked as an undercover cop, capitalizing on his mob connections. With the breakup of the original WildC.A.T.s, Max was recruited by Savant to take Cole's place, and given the codename Condition Red. After an injury, he went his own way, but later returned to the group.
His current standings after Worldstorm are unknown.
Cash was one of the many Wildstorm characters migrated over to the main DC line post-Flashpoint, first appearing in Grifter #1. In DC's new 52 Max is sent by the government to track down his brother Cole, who is being hunted by both the United States and the DC's re-imagined version of the daemonites. During his pursuit of Cole, Max Cash is murdered by one of the daemonite scouts who then inhabits his body. In issue 8, it is revealed that Max's consciousness is still existent inside of the daemonite, however Max is incapable of controlling his body in any way. Once the daemonite is defeated, Max is able to telepathically convince his brother to kill his body, finally allowing him a peaceful death.
