|Position||-Employee of Kingpin|
Donning a top hat and tails and dubbing himself Daddy Longlegs, Kole invaded the stage of a packed theatre mid-performance and began dancing. When the audience started to laugh at his odd appearance, an enraged Kole prepared to attack them, but was interrupted by Luke Cage, alerted earlier to the crime scene by the Pym Tech scientist, who led him out to the parking lot to fight. He proved to be a surprisingly able combatant, but when he broke his cane in half, he was distracted enough for the hero to grab his hand and give out a super-punch, knocking him out. Binding him with a metal fence, Luke Cage was surprised when Kole broke down, bemoaning both his now freakish appearance, and his former life as a failed dancer. While Luke Cage debated with himself whether to turn him over to the police, a psychiatric hospital, or to the higher-ups at Pym Technologies, Kole was abducted by an agent of Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin, and forcibly made to serve as a super-criminal henchmen for the Kingpin's enterprises.
