The past history of Crusher Hogan of Earth-78127 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart up until the day when Peter Parker would visit an exhibition on radiation. In this reality it would be Flash Thompson who would get bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter. After discovering his enhanced strength, Flash would see an advertisement offering $100,00 to any man who could last more than 3 minutes in the ring against Crusher Hogan.

Flash would brazenly accept the challenge and battle Crusher. Not aware of his full strength, Flash would grab Crusher in a head lock and accidentally snap his neck, killing Hogan instantly and making Flash an instant fugitive once he would flee arrest. The guilt Flash felt due to accidentally killing an innocent man, led him to become the short-lived super-hero known as Captain Spider.[1]
