Blackie Gaxton was a gangster to whom Bennett Brant owed a large gambling debt. He blackmailed Brant into getting his sister Betty to contact Doctor Octopus when he was released from prison in order to spring Gaxton from prison himself. When Spider-Man caught up with Gaxton and Octopus on his getaway ship, Gaxton accidentally shot Bennett during a struggle with Spider-Man. He was arrested again and supposedly returned to prison[1].
