He became the neighbor of John Smith, which was actually an alias for Frank Castle, the Punisher.

Another neighbor, Joan the Mouse, found the badly wounded Punisher and brought in Spacker Dave for help. Dave informed her about the Punisher, and explained that they couldn't call the cops or even take him to a hospital, because he was a wanted man, and because the men who had injured him might come after him there. They would have to keep their cool and not say a word to anyone. When two of the crime lord Ma Gnucci's men, posing as police officers, came looking for the Punisher, Dave took a few deep breaths, told himself to be cool, and opened the door. He immmediately loses his cool and accidentally reveals his apparent knowledge of the Punisher.

Gnucci's men forced their way into Dave's room, tied him up, and proceeded to rip his facial piercings out one by one in an effort to force him to tell them where Castle was. Dave screamed bloody murder, but refused to give up the goods on the Punisher. Hearing the screams, Castle had Joan help him to the door and he managed to kill the two criminals. Castle had Joan call one of his "doctor" friends, who patched up Dave's face and gave him some pain medication.

Some time later, he, Joan, and Mr. Bumpo go into Frank's apartment and discover money that was left there for them respectively.


Spacker Dave formerly had the ability to hang magnets from the jewelry in his face, indicating that they were made up of a ferrous metal other than stainless steel.
