The Ringer claimed to hail from Waldorf, Maryland, but really came from Medina County, Ohio. He came to New York City, and found himself in battle Spider-Man and Shadow Cat as he was stealing a suitcase from a businessman. Ultimately, the Ringer was defeated when he was webbed by Spider-Man; in the process, Shadowcat caused his backpack generator that powers his rings to explode, incapacitating and severely injuring him. The Ringer was carrying his wallet with him and had his identity and home revealed to everyone in the vicinity before he was arrested by the authorities.[1]

Ringer later appeared again, attempting another robbery, but was defeated by the new Spider-Man.


Similar to the mainstream incarnation of the Ringer, Anthony Davis.
