History: (Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#9/2 (fb) ) - Charlie Weiser's wife threatened to leave him if he wasn't promoted to an executive position. His employer, Justin Hammer, offered him such a promotion if he agreed to wear a suit based on Hobie Brown's designs (which Brown's wife, Mindy McPherson, had offered to sell to Hammer) and steal plans from one of Hammer's competitors. Charles agreed.

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#9/2) - Stealing the microfilm, Weiser ran afoul of a security guard; he shot him with his taser, but attracted the attention of the Prowler (secretly Hobie Brown, who had come to retrieve his plans from a nearby Hammer plant). Weiser leapt off the roof, unfurled his wings, and attacked the Prowler with their built-in weapons. The Prowler, recognizing the design, fired a gas blast that shredded Charles' wings. The Prowler saved the plummeting Weiser, and unmasked him; Weiser explained himself, but the Prowler was unimpressed. He let Weiser go, telling him to report the glider's failure and to resign from Hammer Industries...and also advised him to find a good divorce lawyer.
