Riptor is a biker thug and member of the Dino-gang
Rafael Klatik was born in Barcelona. After graduating from college he decided to move to America and see what kind of job he could get there. Unfortunatley for him however nobody would accept him and he was forced to steal food to survive.
However after seing a biker gang, then known as the Thrashers, he decided to join them and was quickly accepted. However shortly afterwards a mutant known as Sky Pterror wanted to join the gang too and was accepted by the leader of the gang because of the fact that, being a mutant he could make their numerous jobs much easier. However when Sky Pterror discovered this he murdered the leader and offered the gang a chance to join him. Their was mixed reactions to this, Rafael was one of the people who was eager to join Sky Pterror's gang and quickly accepted. Not long afterwards he and the others began a raid on Oscorp and, using their speed broke in and stole high tech weaponry. However Spider-Man and the X-Men teamed up to stop Sky Pterror and his thugs and put them away in the Vault.
However there was a breakout and the Dino-gang escaped and returned to their old headquarters. Once there Sky Pterror reaveled that he had stolen numerous chemicals from Oscorp and wanted the gang to drink it so that they could become stronger...or poison them. Riptor was the first person to drink the chemicals and so was the first to mutate, becoming an anthromorphic Utahraptor. However due to Sky Pterror's actions of killing the leader of the Thrashers, their succesors, the Old Thrashers launched a gang war on them and killed several members. Riptor, despite being caught up in the middle of the fight survivded, but was badly injured.
In the Transformers universe Riptor and the other surviving members of the Dino-gang were kidnapped by the Decepticons because after the events of Dark Star, needed new soldiers to replenish their ranks. The Dino-gang became Transformers who could transform into the dinosaurs they embodied (I.E. Riptor into a robotic Utahraptor). Riptor's body was silver, his back was gold and his head and claws were red.
