History:
(Web of Spider-Man#27 (fb) - BTS) - Headhunter was employed by Executive Systems, INC (ESI), a company that provided funding to would-be executives, in exchange for a large percentage of their future profits. If said executive could not make a profit, he would be terminated by Headhunter.

(Web of Spider-Man#27 (fb)) - Headhunter was sent to execute auto-executive Anthony Delandri. The murder was witnessed by Lee Camino, head of Sterling Motors, who was also involved with ESI.

(Web of Spider-Man#27) - Headhunter began following Camino, to enforce the threat of his failure to succeed. Reporter Peter Parker took a picture of Headhunter, who then crushed his camera. Parker tagged him with a Spider-Tracer, but Headhunter found the tracer and set up a series of traps for him. As Camino's efforts to improve his profits failed, Headhunter kidnapped his son, Danny. Spider-Man followed his tracer to the basement of ESI, where he leanred what was going on from Lee Camino. They entered Headhunter's lair, narrowly escaping a series of traps in the process. While Camino rescued his son, Spidey went after Headhunter, who acid to disable his web-shooters,  a series of speakers and amplifiers to deafen him, followed by magnesium flares to blind him. Headhunter then confronted his seemingly helpless prey, hurling his battleaxe to decapitate him. However, even without sight or hearing, Spidey was still warned of the attack by his Spider-Sense, and he dodged the attack and then punched out Headhunter. Spidey then turned him over to the police.
