Hobie wanted power. Unfortunately, he was a petty crook working for a relatively small crime lord named Iceberg. However, Hobie was not satisfied with his cut. He started stealing from Iceberg but was caught. Iceberg tried to kill him so he ran. He also found that his girlfriend got tired of his ways and fell for another man.

He found a couple, Mary Jane Watson and her fiance Peter Parker, and grabbed her purse. However, the superhero Spider-Man appeared and caught him. He was then sent to prison for his crimes.

While he was in jail he met a man named Richard Fisk. He saved the man from some people attacking him. Soon after, some hot shot lawyer helped get Hobie released.

He then met Richard's father, Wilson Fisk. Fisk gave him a powerful suit that Hobie used as Prowler.

Prowler confronted Iceberg, defeated him, and turned him into his servant. However, the suit required constant recharging and would shock Hobie if he delayed. Additionally, Kingpin would only recharge the suit if Hobie worked for him.

Prowler found Peter and asked for his help, thinking he would know how to contact Spider-Man. He told him his story of how he got there.

Spider-Man appeared and found that the suit would shock him if he disobeyed Kingpin, and the belt would explode if it was tampered with. Together the two fought Kingpin and got the belt off.

Afterwards, Hobie gave up his life of crime so he could have a good, normal life.
