History: (The Amazing Spider-Man Sticker Fun (fb) - BTS) - The Professor was a professor who was fired from his job and his firing was made public in a front page Daily Bugle article published by J. Jonah Jameson. He then kidnapped the star athlete.
(The Amazing Spider-Man Sticker Fun) - Taking the
athlete to an electronics laboratory, the Professor subjected the
athlete to his Mind
Probe device, which not only placed the athlete under the
Professor's control but also enlarged the athlete to a size of twenty
feet. The Professor then ordered the athlete to smash the Daily Bugle
building as revenge for J. Jonah Jameson making him a laughing stock.
He then sent the athlete on his way, ordering him to return when the
job was done. Succeeding in damaging part of the Daily Bugle building,
the athlete encountered Spider-Man and the police, eventually escaping
Spider-Man by leaping over several shops (including June's
Fashions) to return to the Professor.
Feeling as if the athlete had bungled his job, the
Professor decided to enlarge the athlete to one hundred feet,
determined to ruin Jameson once and for all. Having followed the
athlete, Spider-Man soon confronted the Professor but the Professor hit
Spider-Man with a blast from his Stun
Gun and escaped. Minutes later, Spider-Man recovered and pursued
the Professor, soon finding him running down the street. Carjacking a
nearby van, the Professor attempted to escape the pursuing Spider-Man
but was halted when Spider-Man lifted up the back end of the van,
preventing its motion. Spider-Man then held the Professor long enough
for the police to apprehend the criminal. Spider-Man then returned to
the Daily Bugle as Peter Parker and attempted to sell Jameson photos of
the fight, remarking that the Professor had been placed in jail.

The Professor's Mind Probe device was capable of placing others under his mental commands. After the Professor kidnapped the star athlete, he hooked the athlete up to the Mind Probe to both control the athlete's mind and enlarge him to a size of twenty feet. When the giant athlete returned to the Professor after damaging the Daily Bugle building, the Professor hooked him up to the Mind Probe once more to enlarge him to one hundred feet but the Professor was stopped when Spider-Man got involved. The Professor soon escaped and without the Professor to keep the Mind Probe running, the athlete's mind returned to normal.

The Professor's Stun Gun was a small gun that could
stun opponents for several minutes. When Spider-Man invaded the
Professor's electronics laboratory, the Professor used the Stun Gun
against the wall-crawler, knocking him out for several minutes.
