Overdrive was the latest villain incorporated into Mr. Negative's army. He was sent to steal an artifact from a museum but was stopped by Spider-Man after a high-speed chase through Manhattan and Overdrive was left webbed for the police.
Later, Overdrive tried to steal a Sonic Pulse Generator from a labratory under Mr. Negative's orders and failed again when he was stopped by Spider-Man. Due his failures, Mr. Negative sent his thugs to kill him, but he escaped when he was put in the trunk of Mr. Negative's limo and escaped using his powers.
Some time later, he was captured and sent to the authorities by Spider-Man during his search for the baby of Harry Osborn. Another time, he tired to kidnap a celebrity but was stopped again by Spider-Man.
