He at some point became a hired thug and was hired to attack a cargo boat belonging to Roxxon Industries in a conspiracy against the head of the company, Donald Roxxon. After his fight with Spider-Man at Roxxon industries he was captured by SHIELD[1] but escaped when the Green Goblin caused a mass prison break.[2]

When Spider-Man defeated him his clients stopped going to him. He blamed the Daily Bugle because of the article that was written by J. Jonah Jameson of how he was humiliated.
