(Daredevil I#340 (fb) ) - Robert Asbury worked at a diner in rural Pennsylvania called "Ghost of a Chance". When Victor Krueller came crashing through the glass, Asbury joined patrons Karen Page, Ben Urich, Glorianna O'Breen, Foggy Nelson, and Kathy Malper in tending to the man, but then Wilson Fisk entered.

(Daredevil I#341 (fb) ) - Kingpin savagely beat Krueller, seemingly killing him, then he ordered his man Kai-Shek to burn the diner down, including the patrons.

(Daredevil I#342 (fb) ) - Kingpin had Asbury, O'Breen, Urich, Malper, Nelson, and Page all drugged and returned to their homes.

(Daredevil I#338 (fb) - BTS) - Krueller became Kruel, and he hunted down and beat Asbury, leaving him for dead.

(Daredevil I#338) - Daredevil found Robert Asbury laying in the street badly beaten. Assuming Daredevil was one of his attackers, Asbury put his car keys in his hand and lashed out, but soon collapsed. Daredevil held Asbury's hand until the police arrived.
