History: (Daredevil I#166 (fb) – BTS) – "Porkchop" Peterson was the college friend of "Foggy" Nelson and they were members of the same fraternity, once breaking into the girls' dorms together.

(Daredevil I#166) – "Porkchop" showed up at the wedding of "Foggy" Nelson and Debbie Harris, surprising his old friend. Wearing a green and yellow polka dot suit, "Porkchop" had "Foggy" help him reenact their old fraternity cheer. He also met Matt Murdock and "Foggy"'s family, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson, and Candace Nelson. Having forgotten the rings at the store front, "Foggy" sent Matt and "Porkchop" to retrieve them but when the cab was stalled, "Porkchop" was shocked when Matt just rushed out of the cab without a word. Later, "Foggy" married Debbie at the church.

(Daredevil I#185 (fb) – BTS) – "Foggy" and Porkchop participated in a bowling league in Akron, Ohio together.

(Daredevil I#229 - BTS) - Foggy purchased a Christmas gift for Porkchop, a bowling ball with his name engraved on it, but he ended up using the ball to stop a purse snatcher.

Thanks to Ronald Byrd for pointing out that Porkchop had received a first name.
