Coyle Bagman was a veteran FBI agent. Together with his partner, Agent Wambaugh, Bagman tailed Lee Price after taking interest in him while monitoring Black Cat's Gang.

They followed him to his apartment and intervened when Firebug burned it down and confronted Lee, who turned out to be the latest host of the Venom symbiote.[1] After Wambaugh used a sonic weapon to separate the symbiote from its host, Bagman shot Lee in the chest. He then tried to hurt the symbiote when it tried to bond to Wambaugh, but the symbiote returned to Lee and escaped with him after noticing he was fatally hurt.

Bagman and Wambaugh then tracked down Lee to Tony Consiglio's apartment. While Wambaugh directly confronted Lee, who was weakened from the bullet injury, Bagman positioned himself in a rooftop across the street, ready to launch an incendiary charge in case Lee refused to accept the ultimatum Wambaugh offered him: to work for the FBI as an informant, or risk becoming public, thus turning into a target for law enforcement agencies and vigilantes.[2] The next day, Bagman met with Price and requested he inform the FBI of Spider-Man's secret identity so that the agency could blackmail the superhero into providing them with information on New York's organized crime.[3]

After his possession of the symbiote was revealed, Price captured Black Cat's second-in-command, Adams, and contacted Bagman. After taking Adams to the rendezvous point, Adams revealed that Bagman was actually an informant for the Black Cat's gang, and was the one who had revealed him as Venom.[4]
