|Early in his career, Hammerhead had a major problem with Doctor Octopus having fought him a number of times and once was forced to flee the country due to his organized crime connections...Hammy was thought to be dead ( phased into another dimension) but appeared as a ghost like being that haunted Doc Ock for a time who unknowingly restored him...He then went on to kidnap Aunt May.|
|Hammerhead has appeared in other non-spidey comics but has never really made a name for himself in another characters rogues gallery of villains...Recently, and for awhile now, Hammerhead basically is used sparingly, and mostly as a member of organized crime/ Maggia stories such as the classic Gang War storyline. Hammerhead was seen most recently in the Lifeline limited series where he tried to obtain the lifeline formula to save his dying sister Antonia. His sister was saved but he was taken away into police custody.|
