(Amazing Spider-Man I#19) - Wormly brought J. Jonah Jameson news of Spider-Man's return and his capture of a gang of bank robbers, just as Jameson was being introduced in a lecture hall to give a speech titled "How I proved Spider-Man is a cowardly fraud." As Jameson made a hasty exit, Wormly told the puzzled introductory speaker that he was leaving because he didn't feel well.
