History: (Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk in:
Southwest Showdown) - While on assignment in Dallas, Peter Parker took
time out to visit his high school friend Fran, a member of the Dallas
Cowboys Cheerleaders squad. The two shopped at Sanger Harris
before Fran left with the squad on a national tour.
While traveling on their bus, they got lost during a storm.
Arriving at a military base they believed to be Fort Sage, they were
invited inside by the nervous soldiers working for the Leader. While
the rest of the team rested, Fran and Heather took a look around the
compound, accidentally stumbling upon a meeting where they learned the
Leader planned to take over a missile system and hold the country
hostage. Fran called Peter for help, but was cut off by one of the
soldiers. When a trip to the real Fort Sage turned up no leads,
Parker donned his Spider-Man outfit to search the desert. There,
he came across the Hulk battling a platoon of the Leader's men.
He followed the soldiers back to their base, meeting up with Fran
there. While Spider-Man had some of the Cheerleaders dress in
army uniforms to fool their way into other parts of the base, a very
ticked off Hulk arrived. The Leader engaged the two in battle
from within a tripod weapon,
while sending a legion of Battle Androids
into the fray. As a last ditch effort in defeat, the Leader
launched a missile, which the Hulk promptly destroyed. The real
Fort Sage unit arrived and saluted the
Cheerleaders for their hand in the situation. The next day, Parker was
on the sidelines of the Fort Sage show as the Dallas Cowboy
Cheerleaders shook their stuff. After the show, Peter and Fran
returned to the Sanger Harris store, where they giddily conversed about
the back-to-school selection.
(Spider-Man and the Dallas Cowboys: Danger in Dallas) - After
Spider-Man and the Dallas Cowboys defeated a plot by the Circus of
Crime, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders performed at the Cowboys'
football game against the New York Giants.
