    Default Peter Petruski AKA Paste Pot Pete AKA The Trapster

    Has any writer ever delved into the reason why he didn't patent his super paste and market it? Maybe he did try but big business tried to screw him out of any profits, which is what usually happens to inventors(at least in comics).

    There was an AU where he did exactly just that and become a successful businessman. From the Marvel Villains entry on Trapster:
    Other Appearances: "Traps" by Ken Grobe, a short story in "The Ultimate Super-Villains" where Peter finds fortune and romance marketing his paste products in infomercials. A story so good I would love to see it become part of the Marvel Canon!

    The problem is that story is not canon and thus has no bearing on the character from the comics.

    I really dislike the trope where a super villain could make money legitimately and decides not so he can rob banks and get punched by super heroes.

    Trapster has been around for 50 years, surely the writers can give him an actual in canon story that expands the character beyond being a one note generic villain.

    Default Strange tales #124

    Strange tales #124
    The Human Torch and The Thing team up to battle the menace of... Paste-Pot Pete!


    The first story in strange tales #124 features the human torch and the thing – starting this issue his permanent partner for this feature – working together the face-off against a newly improved Paste-pot Pete.

    In this issue to meet up with a recently freed Paste-pot Pete, whom was given early release for helping the Avengers. With his newfound freedom – in typical super villain fashion – he chooses to pursue vengeance against human torch for his prior defeats.

    But what makes him think he can defeat his old rival? That’s simple a newly revised suit and some newly revised paste!

    Art
    Artistically speaking, this story was adequately done.
    While I find the new design for Paste-pot Pete lacking, the panels of this issue were quite adequate and sufficient in telling the story.

    Characters and development
    This issue offered little in the way of character development for our heroes. As has been typical for this feature, I believe to leave most developments for the Fantastic Four title. But even the limited support cast this title has offered ( mainly Doris) sees little and the way of development in this tale.

    Paste-pot Pete, the featured tag antagonist is the one character to see development. And I find that mostly limited to the characters redesign. Even for him I feel it to be lacking.

    Talking Spidey's reaction to "Paste-Pot-Pete"


    Thanks to Spidey, Paste-Pot-Pete changed his name.

    I miss the Superhero Squad cartoon. It had some clever writing and some good voice actors. Jane Lynch did a guest shot as Nebula and then you had George Takei voicing Galactus...that's hard to top

    Trapster is one of my favorite villains and has been for a very, very long time!

    To me, since 616 Peter Parker has become a successful businessman then so too should 616 Peter Petruski!

    Ah, two Peter P.'s who invented sticky stuff.

    One went on to become a superhero and then a CEO.

    The other… made a career as a supervillain.

    Maybe Petruski can swallow his pride and work for Parker?

    That really IS dislikable, yes.

    100% in agreement.
