Barker thinks he'll enjoy himself with ShriekHistory: (Web of Spider-Man Annual#10 - BTS) - Barker was secretly sent by Reynard to the Ravencroft Institute and was paid to spy on Dr. Kafka activities and to give information to Reynard to be used against the Dr. Kafka. 

(Web of Spider-Man Annual#10) - When Shriek arrived at the Institute, John Jameson ordered Barker and other agents to escort her to the infirmary. He did so, and when Jameson left the infirmary he started to menace Shriek. He was unaware that Reynard, through a camera, was observing his lackey of professionalism. Barker didn't notice that Shriek was absorbing the charge of the surveillance unit and was feeding on his emotions. She manipulated him to increase his anger. Barker hit Shriek, who accumulated enough energy to free her from her bonds and then caused Barker so much pain that he had to kneel down. She didn't kill him like she did with many other people in the Institute.

(Web of Spider-Man Annual#10 - BTS) - After John Jameson and Spider-Man defeated Shriek and the other criminals, Barker was hospitalized.

(Web of Spider-Man Annual#10) - John Jameson decided he would visit Barker to ask him what was his relation with Reynard.
