Originally a very loyal hit-man of the Kingpin, the Answer eventually became one of his right-hand men. Spying on Spider-Man and the Black Cat was one of his many little odd-jobs. He also retrieved Silvermane where the Kingpin brought him back from the dead. The Answer died after feeding Dagger his "light forces" trying to revive her in order for her to save the Kingpin's wife Vanessa. The Answer became an unconscious being of energy and eventually retained his awareness without any physical form as told in the limited series Lethal Foes Of Spider-Man where he first allied himself with Doctor Octopus communicating with him by means of a computer chip in the good Doctor's mind. The Answer resumed a physical form in issue 2 of that limited series and helped break Doc Ock out of the vault prison. Their friendship quickly turned to hate as they fought each other and the Answer has not been seen since. It was learned that the Answer's real name is David Ferrari when he came back from the "dead" in Captain America V3 #41 but was later defeated in issue #43.
