History: (Howard the Duck IV#1 (fb) – BTS) – When Howard the Duck and Tara Tam were arrested, Detective Mike Corson investigated them and found no history in the database for either of them.

(Howard the Duck IV#1) – Corson let Howard and Tam go, warning them that he'd researched their history.

(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl I#4) – Detective Corson saw a group of squirrels stacked like a man help defeat bank robbers. He thanked the squirrels, calling them Squirrel-Man.

(Howard the Duck IV#3) – When Howard the Duck was robbed, Corson showed up to interview the witnesses, including Tara Tam and She-Hulk. Corson refused to put the duck in his police report.

(Howard the Duck IV#4) – After another chaotic Howard battle, one that involved Talos the Tamed, Corson arrived to arrest the Ringmaster.

(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#7) – Corson sent out a tweet alerting the city about the dual threats of Quoggoth and Dr. Yes in different parts of the city. While Squirrel Girl handled one of the threats, the police took care of the other. He later shook SG's hand to thank her.

(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#20) – Corson arrived to settle a conflict between Melissa Morbeck and Squirrel Girl, Chipmunk Hunk, and Koi Boi. At first Corson wasn't sure who to arrest, but texts from Thor (Odinson), Thor (Jane Foster), Iron Man (Tony Stark), and Spider-Man (Peter Parker) helped him realize that Morbeck was the villain.

(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#21 (fb)) – Corson attended a party that Howard the Duck and She-Hulk were at, and there, Brain Drain used a media search to see that Corson wasn't married.
