History

Imprisoned Members

"I need you to tell them that you shot Osiris, not me. I got a deal on the table that'll change all our lives. The thing is, I gotta get out of here to make it work."
"G, man, you asking me to do a dime at least, bro."
Geoffrey Wilder and Darius Davis[src]

Darius Davis and Geoffrey Wilder in prison

Both the gang leader Geoffrey Wilder and his friend Darius Davis were imprisoned in the Los Angeles Penitentiary for the murder of Osiris. However, once he was offered a lucrative deal by Jonah, Wilder, counseled by Catherine Henderson, convinced Davis to fully take the blame for the crime. As a result, Wilder was soon released from prison while Davis agreed to serve a several years long sentence. In exchange, Wilder promised Davis that he would look after Davis' family.[1]

Change in Leadership

"G let me have his old turf. Acted like it was some grand gesture. But times changed since your daddy was in the game. Ain't as lucrative as it was when he came up."
Darius Davis to Alex Wilder[src]

Once Darius Davis was released from prison, he took the leadership of the Crips as Geoffrey Wilder had walked away from gang activities. However, Davis had a hard time leading the Crips into the same glory Wilder used to, as he was less skilled than his old friend and the conditions were more difficult than ever.[1]

The Crips confront Geoffrey Wilder

Davis grew more and more upset that Wilder did not kept his part of the bargain as much as he should have according to Davis. Therefore, Davis took a group of Crips into the PRIDE Construction Site, which was being managed by Geoffrey Wilder Construction Inc.. The Crips sent the staff away and ordered them to call for Wilder, who soon arrived to confront his former fellow gangsters. Davis demanded 50 000 dollars from Wilder but Wilder threatened to kill Davis' grandmother Nana B in retaliation. As result, the Crips agreed to leave the construction site, but not before Andre Compton copied the data from Wilder's phone.[2]

Kidnapping of Alex Wilder

The Crips kidnap Alex Wilder

"Alex, you all right?"
"I'm okay."
"That situation could change if you and me can't come to a hospitable conclusion to this whole thing."
Geoffrey Wilder, Alex Wilder and Darius Davis[src]

Believing that Geoffrey Wilder still owed him, Crips leader Darius Davis abducted Geoffrey's son Alex.[3] Davis, Andre Compton and another Crips took Alex to Nana B's house, and Davis explained that he was the reason why Geoffrey had left prison so soon. Davis then told Alex that although Geoffrey had let him his old turf, he considered that Geoffrey had not kept his promise that Davis and his people would not lack anything, which was why he had kidnapped Alex to force his father to react.

Davis used Alex's phone to call Geoffrey and demanded to be handed over a million dollars in exchange for Alex. As they waited for Geoffrey to come, the Crips were attacked by Geoffrey and three LAPD policemen working for him who fired at them. Davis hid into safety and Compton managed to aim at Geoffrey, but before he could shoot, he was shot from behind in the shoulder by Alex, who had stolen his father's gun. while Geoffrey reclaimed the gun and examined the wounded Compton, Davis came back and held Alex at gunpoint before taking him away with his driver.

However, the Crips soon had to deal with another opponent: the Runaways coming to their friend's rescue. Indeed, the Crips realized that their car could not move forward as it was being stopped by Molly Hernandez and her superhuman strength. Davis and his driver got off he car and were attacked by Karolina Dean and her light beams while Alex managed to join his friends. Davis' driver fled but Davis remained to fight the teenagers, but he was thrown away by Chase Stein and his Fistigons.

Darius stood back and shot at the Runaways, only for his bullets to be blocked by an energy shield created by Nico Minoru's Staff of One. Afraid by the strange abilities and equipment the teenagers displayed, Davis got back in his car and drove away. Meanwhile, Compton was taken to the Church of Gibborim Executive Office to be sacrificed in order to revive Jonah.[1]

Construction Site Investigation

Eldridge and Darius - RW109

Darius Davis explains his ideas to Eldridge

"Almost twenty years I've been waiting to see what the hell Old G's gonna do with this shit. I guess it's finally on."
Darius Davis[src]

Despite the Crips failing to obtain what they wanted by kidnapping Alex Wilder, Darius Davis refused to give up on fighting against Geoffrey Wilder. As such, Davis sent his Crips, notably Eldridge, to spy in the security team hired by Geoffrey Wilder Construction Inc. to watch the PRIDE Construction Site. However, Eldridge was dismissed along the rest of the team when they were replaced by men sent by the Church of Gibborim. Eldridge reported this Davis, who understood that something would soon happen on the site.

Davis remained in Momo Korean Restaurant to watch the nearby PRIDE Construction Site, despite his wife Tamar warning him about the fragile position in which the Crips were since they had engaged their fight against Wilder. Davis returned in his car parked next to the site and watched from afar as the Runaways convinced Carl to let them enter the site.[4] Davis later witnessed the confrontation between PRIDE and the Runaways, surprised by the powers displayed by Jonah and Karolina Dean.[5]

New Alliance

"And you think I help you why?"
"Well, you know what they say. The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
"Is that right? Then I guess we tight as hell."
Darius Davis and Alex Wilder[src]

Darius Davis was later contacted by Alex Wilder, who needed assistance now that the Runaways were truly on the run from their parents. As the Crips and the Runaways shared a common enemy in the person of Geoffrey Wilder and PRIDE, Davis agreed to struck an alliance with the Runaways and gave Alex a pack of bills to inaugurate their collaboration and to help the Runaways to hide.[5]
