When Batroc's Brigade attempted to steal the Atomic Inverter X-99 from a Roxxon facility Doug Taggert, as Grasshopper, was attempting to protect his employer's assets when Squirrel Girl, Doorman, and Flatman arrived. Together they battled the Brigade. During a lull in the proceedings, Doorman asked Grasshopper to join his group. Grasshopper agreed. Seconds later, Zaran threw a sai at Doorman, who reflexively teleported it through himself, and it struck Grasshopper between the eyes, killing him instantly.
