History: (Spider-Man I#74 (fb) ) - Lawrence Evans stole an armored battlesuit from parties unknown.

(Spider-Man I#74) - Taking the name Bolt, Evans broke into a bank late at night.  After neutralizing the guards and grabbing a bag of cash, he ran right into Daredevil.  After a brief battle, Daredevil jammed his billy club into a chink in Bolt's armor, knocking Evans out.  Waking up several minutes later tied to a pole, Evans was interrogated by Daredevil.  Although he refused to divulge who he'd stolen the armor from, as they'd kill him if they knew he'd taken it, Evans did tell Daredevil that he'd heard Vincente Fortunato was planning to execute Spider-Man that night.  Thanking Larry and promising to have his "lawyer friend" Matt Murdock call him, Daredevil swung away to rescue the wall-crawler.

Comments: Created by Howard Mackie, John Romita, Jr., & Al Williamson.

No idea who Bolt stole the armor from.  Could have been Fortunato and/or his Hydra allies, I suppose, but one would figure it'd have been green if that were the case...
