Early in his career, the Rocket Racer was no match for Spider-Man and was hardly even a match for the Big Wheel just after his second meeting with Spider-Man in Amazing Spider-Man #183...We soon learned more of the Rocket Racer's past and eventually received his origin in a storyline played out in Spectacular Spider-Man #104...His ways were changing though, from criminal to heroic.
