WHATEVER HAPPENED TO CRUSHER HOGAN? Crusher Hogan is working maintenance at a boxing facility and spinning tall tales of how he helped create Spider-Man when he discovers a plot by one of the owners to take down a fighter. Peter gets a call from May who asks him to keep an eye on Nathan who may be in trouble. Spidey gets involved in the problems Crusher Hogan and Bobby Chance are having with Manslaughter. Felling the villain, Spidey fudges history a little and confirms his 'close' relationship with Hogan, making him a hero. Peter tells Aunt May he lost track of Nathan and finds he was beaten badly and is now in the hospital.
