History:

(Marvel Comics Presents#48/3 (fb) - BTS) - The boy came into contact with Harlan who was only interested to get some publicity for his client the Wasp. He gave mementos and other personal things from the Wasp to the boy to build up his obsession, but soon it got out of control as the boy wasn't just a mere boy.

(Marvel Comics Presents#48/3 (fb) ) - The boy showed for the first time his mutant ability to Wasp by manipulating the digital advertising at a theatre the Wasp was visiting into sending a love message to her.

(Marvel Comics Presents#48/3) - The boy called the Wasp and attacked her with the wires from her phone while telling her that he loved her and that she was his. The police traced the call back and told the Wasp where her stalker lived. Before she flew to him wires in front of her house rose from the ground and built a hologram her being naked. Wasp destroyed the hologram and flew to the stalker's apartment which was filled with articles, mementos and pictures from her. Some of those things surprised her as they couldn't have possibly gotten into the stalker's possession. The boy entered the room and was happy to see his admired heroine as he was sure that she came because he showed her how much he loved her. He told her that he took his powers as a sign that they were meant to be together, but she destroyed the flowers he created with electricity and told the boy that she was sick of his actions. The boy became angry and attacked her with all he got. Wasp's sting didn't hurt him because it was based on electricity. The boy absorbed her attacks, but soon he felt that it overloaded him and he stumbled right into Harlan who was standing at his door. He tied up Harlan with wires and asked him if he wanted to watch his boss beating the guy Harlan set up. Wasp attacked the boy again and he continued to drain her sting, but when she asked him to stop he did it because he couldn't absorb anymore. The Wasp then helped the boy by redirecting the extra electricity from his body to the ground. After that the battered boy was brought away by the Wasp to get some help for him and Harlan was fired.

Harlan

He was Wasp's publicity agent and did everything to get her into the media. He gave many souvenirs to the boy who would become Wasp's stalker and encouraged him in his obsession. In front of Wasp he always played down the danger of the situation. He followed the Wasp to the boy's apartment with a camera to get some good photos of the Wasp stopping her stalker, but the boy accidentally stumbled into Harlan and tied him up in wires. Wasp had to save Harlan from the stalker, but she didn't overhear the boy saying that Harlan set the boy up. Harlan tried to explain his actions as part of his job and he already waited for TV to get to the apartment, but Wasp just fired him.
