On July 3, 1957, seven mafia bosses and their chief lieutenants met at a restaurant in Las Vegas and were killed by a rival boss, Morris Forelli. Their bodies were buried in the Nevada desert and the legend was told of "The Vegas Thirteen".

Nuclear weapons were tested in the area of the grave site, and a patchwork monster consisting of the bodies of the 13 men came to life. "Digger" wanted only vengeance on Forelli.

A detective named Lamont of NYPD found a hand print made by Digger, and identified five different fingerprints in it. He sought the help of Spider-Man, who had also been sought out by Forelli, who was scared for his life.

Having determined Digger's origins by tracking him back to his original grave and learning what had happened, Spider-Man managed to devise a means of defeating Digger by pushing him so hard that he was unable to maintain his original energy reserves.


Strength provided by gamma radiation.

Strength level

Estimated to be approximately 100 tons.[1]


Dependent on his gamma energy to hold all thirteen parts together, but lacked a living biological structure to keep that energy charged up on its own, allowing Spider-Man to defeat him by pushing him so hard that his body collapsed. Knowledge of the modern world was several decades out of date due to his time spent 'dead'.
