He was depicted as mayor of New York when the Jester attempted to destabilize the city by hijacking the media transmissions, first causing Foggy Nelson to lose his re-election as DA, then framing Daredevil for murder and finally making it seem that the New York City Police Department had gone insane. was targeted by a conspiracy led by criminal Conquer-Lord, who inteded to replace the former as Mayor with his own puppet candidate Charles "Greely" Thurston. As the Mayor was expected to win re-election by landslide, Conquer-Lord staged a false burglary on Thurston's offices, using seven undercover corrupt policemen in his payroll as the raiders, then slander the Mayor by accusing him. The break-in was stopped by vigilante Moon Knight -who was then falsely accused of deliberately assaulting policemen. Conquer-Lord adapted his plan and decided to murder the Mayor personally using a long-range rifle during the Mayor's fund-raising dinner, one week before the election, with his minions providing a diversion by wreaking havoc on the party. The Moon Knight, also present in the celebration, was unable to prevent Conquer-Lord from shooting the Mayor and escape with a hostage. Fortunately, the Mayor was only non-fatally injured. The Moon Knight told him about Conquer-Lord's conspiracy; the Mayor replied that he was aware of a traitor in NYPD and was trying to find him, also agreeing to exonerate the Moon Knight as soon as he could. The Mayor asked the Moon Knight to stop the Conquer-Lord, which the Knight succeeded at doing. Soon afterward, the Mayor recovered in Mount Sinai Hospital.
