Stilt-Man was always a major Daredevil villain, but as the case with many Daredevil villains, he crossed-over into the Spider-Verse in Amazing Spider-Man #237...It wasnt the first time these two met though as we have to go way back to Daredevil #27 for that introduction...always the loser and second rate villain who appeared in many different titles, a Stilt-Man revamp occurred in the Marvel Knight mini-series Daredevil/ Spider-Man with a more sinister look and deadlier than ever!...On a humorous note, look for Flash Thompson dressing up as Stilt-Man in Web Of Spider-Man #77 where he thought he was at a costume party.
