(Free Comic Book Day 2017 (Secret Empire) #1/2) - A young woman, having recently donned the mantle of the villainous Trapster, spotted Spider-Man and the Vulture battling on a rooftop over a bag of money; she ambushed them with a blast of paste, gluing them both to a wall. She taunted them both for being old, then stole some of the Vulture's money, leaving them some to fight over.
(Amazing Spider-Man V#6) - The Trapster attended the Bar With No Name's Spider-Man trivia night. She watched as Boomerang and his guest, "the Liar" (actually his roommate Peter Parker) handily won the competition...and then received a message from the Kingpin, as did the rest of the bar's patrons, offering an exorbitant price for Boomerang's head.
(Amazing Spider-Man V#7) - Trapster and the others attacked; although Boomerang briefly held them off with a sonic screamerang, they soon gained the upper hand. Parker, however, bluffed them as "the Liar", claiming he could make all their weapons backfire; before they realized he was lying, Boomerang covered their escape with an exploding bomberang.
