(Spider-Man and Power Pack#3 (fb)) - Rudy was running
errands for his fashion designer boss when he accidentally ran into
Venom (Eddie Brock). Angered, he initially chided the menacing villain
as the heroic Spider-Man swung in and used the Human Torch's sonic
blaster to violently separate the symbiote's from Brock as Rudy hid
nearby. The inert symbiote landed in Rudy's lap. Frantic on the phone,
Rudy was fired for being late, but he was unrepentant as he clutched
(Spider-Man and Power Pack#3 (fb) - BTS) - Thinking
it just enhanced fabric, Rudy took the symbiote to labs and had it
analyzed and replicated. Despite suspecting the symbiote's dangerous
nature, he designed a range a of fashion wear that changed design and
color at whim.
(Spider-Man and Power Pack#3) - Six months after his
initial encounter with the symbiote, Rudy, now calling himself the more
flamboyant Rudolpho, launched his fashion line in New York Fashion
Week. Mary Jane Parker was one of the runway models and her husband
Peter Parker (secretly Spider-Man) the news photographer. The Power
Pack children attended too in their civilian guise. Just before the
show, Rudolpho greeted May Jane but he triggered Peter Parker's
Spider-sense. Soon, Rudolpho introduced his line of symbiote "clothing"
on his various models. But the symbiotes reacted to Peter Parker,
recognizing him as an enemy, taking over the models to target him, and
he dashed away to change into his hero identity. Seeing Rudolpho
fleeing, Spider-Man webbed him and the designer confessed. Later, after
Spider-Man and Power Pack neutralized the symbiote threat, Rudolpho was
arrested and taken away by the police.

Presumably "Rudolpho" is his full first name, but he may have just added flourish to a simple Rudolf.
