One of the stranger villains in Spider-Man's Rogues Gallery, Mindworm first met Spider-Man when Peter Parker was staying at Flash Thompson's apartment in an area where hordes of people were mysteriously flocking to an unspecified location. The location turned out to be Mindworm's home where he sought to control and feed off as many people as possible. When Spider-Man tried to stop him, he commanded the crowd to kill him but Mindworm was eventually defeated when Spider-Man "deafened" his powers by hitting him in his ears. After some time in the hospital regaining his strength, Mindworm sought revenge on Spider-Man in the form of a dream where Spider-Man and Mindworm's nurse fought through his Neuroses in the form of a labyrinth. Again, Mindworm was defeated, but in the end the two real nemesis became friends and Mindworm also learned that "With great power, comes great responsibility!"
