He intended to became his loyal side-kick, Webbie, but Spider-Man denied him this, fearing for Ollie to be in danger, because of his lack of powers.
Ollie quickly grew in anger for Spider-Man. He freed a few days later three low-range costumed criminals captured by the Webslinger, enhanced them with his tech, and led them in a team dubbed the Boston Terroriers against Spider-Man.
He finally captured his idol, he revealed himself, and Spider-Man apologize but accidentally revealed the fact that J.J. Jameson offered 10 millions dollars for his unmasking, leading the three criminals to attack them.

As Steel Spider helps Spider-Man to fight Plymouth Rocket, Salem's Witch, and Smash Adams, they work to get the shut-off switch on the armors. Afterwards, Steel Spider decides to become the superhero of Boston while Spider-Man heads back to New York.
