Powerful Alchemax Vice-President Tyler Stone contacted Stark-Fujikawa to employ the Specialist in order to kidnap a woman named Kasey Nash, who owed the MegaCorp. a debt. When Nash escaped from Alchemax the Specialist was honor bound to recapture her, and got into a confrontation with the new Spider-Man. During the fight, Spider-Man inadvertently slit the Specialist's throat with his talons, accidentally killing him.
All this was anticipated by Stone, who had hoped to manipulate Stark-Fujikawa into a debt of honor to avenge themselves against Spider-Man, leaving Stone free to concentrate on other maters while Spider-Man was dealt with.
After the temporal disturbances caused by the Age of Ultron disrupted the timeline of Earth-928, Specialist was seen trying to stop the Superior Spider-Man from raiding Stark-Fujikawa's North American headquarters, but Spider-Man was able to escape.
