History: (Amazing Spider-Man I#212) - After Morrie Bench was transformed into Hydro-Man, he used his powers to transform into liquid and travel through the pipes of New York, arriving in the bathroom sink of police officer Hy Egan. Hydro-Man asked Egan if he remembered when he busted him for smuggling and then asked where Spider-Man was. Hy Egan tried to explain that he had no way of knowing where Spider-Man was, but Hydro-Man blasted Egan with a rush of water.
Comments: Created by Denny O'Neil, John Romita Jr., and Jim Mooney.
