D.A Tower cleared Spider-Man's name of any wrong doing in the deaths of Cpt. George Stacy and Norman Osborn. He told Spider-Man the good news in person much to his surprise and joy.[9]

When J. Jonah Jameson accused Spider-Man of murder, Spider-Man went to Blake's office to deny the accusation. When Tower asked whether the accusation was true, Spider-Man replied that it was not. Tower recommended Spider-Man sue Jameson for defamation of character, but such a lawsuit would require that Spider-Man reveal his secret identity. This was unacceptable to Spider-Man, and he shattered Tower's desk in frustration. Tower accepted Spider-Man's apology and then told Spider-Man that he couldn't offer legal advice.

Handing Spider-Man a letter addressed to him care of Tower's office, he requested that Spider-Man not use city hall as his mail box. Thanking Tower for everything, Spider-Man departed.

However, the defense argued that since the murder of his family Frank Castle has gone completely insane and needed to be institutionalized. Upon hearing this, Frank refused to believe that he is mad and lashed out, telling the judge that the entire system is crazy for letting criminals walk the street before collapsing in a nervous breakdown.[12]

He was invited to participate in a poker game with Beast, Wonder Man, Nick Fury, Wolverine and Carol Danvers at the Avengers Mansion.[13]


Louise Mason, a former heroine, managed to get hired by Tower as a legal secretary. In that role, she convinced Tower to hire Jennifer Walters, the She-Hulk, as a lawyer. Unfortunately, She-Hulk's status as an Avenger and a superheroine made her work difficult and caused Tower some nervous problems, so they eventually discontinued their legal relationship. Mason, who had became She-Hulk's friend, left her job with Tower to work with She-Hulk.[14][15][16][17]
