History:

(Marvel Team-Up III#9 (fb) - BTS) – An unrevealed criminal wanting to follow in the footsteps of the retired Wilbur Day, the notorious Stilt-Man, downloaded the plans for the Stilt-Man on the internet. Though he initially sought to buy the plans on E-Bay, he later found a free download. After augmenting the armor with telescoping arms (calling them extendo-arms) and heavy artillery, he began a crime spree through the city, successfully accomplishing several heists and beating Superpro in combat.

(Marvel Team-Up III#9) - As Stilt-Man went stomping across the city with his stolen goods, Daredevil attacked him, and Stilt-Man immediately launched his telescoping arm at the hero, who was trying to be gentle so as not to hurt Stilt-Man, and who continually denied being Matt Murdock. Stilt-Man lauded himself, surprised he hadn't run into Daredevil before now, firing his guns at the hero. After shrugging off a kick from Daredevil, who missed Stilt-Man with a thrown billy club, Stilt-Man grew more arrogant. He was soon knocked unconscious by a single thrown punch from the powerful Luke Cage. Daredevil propped him up with a rope so that Stilt-Man wouldn't fall to the ground and kill himself.

(Spider-Man Unlimited II#12) – Spider-Man interrupted one of Stilt-Man’s robberies, knocking him into a building, but Stilt-Man tossed Spider-Man into a dumpster. Big Wheel, in an attempt at being a hero, attacked and tried grabbing Stilt Man’s stilts in a pincer, but his grease coating allowed Stilt-Man to escape. Stilt-Man the kicked Big Wheel over and escaped, but was later defeated by Power Pack. Stilt-Man and the Shocker laughed at Big Wheel forming a Vil-Anon group at the prison later.

(Ms. Marvel II#1) – Using his new armor, Stilt-Man was robbing an armored car, shrugging off police gunfire and thrilled with his suit’s new strength as he lifted the car above his head. Ms. Marvel, who Stilt-Man didn’t even recognize, knocked Stilt-Man down, then she stopped the car from crushing young kids, including Vincent and Jake. Stilt-Man followed her, but she knocked him down with the car. He tried hitting her with a new energy blaster, but she absorbed the blast and fired it back at him, hitting him in the groin. Repeatedly.

(X-Men: To Serve and Protect#4/3) – Stilt-Man was among villains selected by the Grandmaster to battle Dazzler, Misty Knight, and Colleen Wing in a cosmic roller derby. Colleen chopped his stilts in half with her sword. He was then nearly killed by Sentinels.

(Daredevil III#22) - Stilt-Man upgraded his armor with Doctor Octopus's arms, and attacked businessman Walter Devonshire. Spider-Man and Daredevil sorted out his armor and stopped him.
