Bob DeNatale was an assistant editor for Marvel Comics, the comic book company that produced official adaptations of the adventures of various super-heroes that lived in New York City during the Modern Age of Heroes. He worked in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man Vol 1[1] and in Marvel Team-Up Vol 1, both under Editor Danny Fingeroth,[2] supervising and validating work of writer Bill Mantlo and artist Al Milgrom. During the Assistant Editor Month, Fingeroth and the other editors went to the San Diego Comic Con, then DeNatale decided to run a risk to convey his Vision of the series and replace Milgrom's pages with humor artist Fred Hembeck's -still paying Milgrom's, of course.[1] Meanwhile, in San Diego, Fingeroth was having a nightmare where DeNatale botched that month's issue of Team-Up.[2]

Milgrom was so angry at DeNatale's decision that he raided Fingeroth's office and expressed his displeasure. However, Fingeroth came back prematurely and was as annoyed as Al, fearing particularly Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter's opinion. Fingeroth recovered as many of Milgrom's pages as possible and used it, overriding DeNatale's bootlicker groveling.[1]
