(Defenders V#4 (fb) ) - Roman was hanging out at a club that catered to super-villains when Hammerhead gave him some Diamond, a derivative of Mutant Growth Hormone, and he asked Roman to try it out and report back to him later. Roman texted a girlfriend to ask if she wanted to join in, then he saw Spider-Man (Miles Morales) enter.

   Roman met up with his girlfriend and used Diamond with her and it gave them an incredible high that lasted for hours before she wound up dead from an overdose. Roman returned to see Detective Quaid and reporter Ben Urich in his home, and he cried out in pain to see his girlfriend dead.
