The Trapster (real name Peter Petruski) is a super-villain that uses paste-based weaponry and a member of the Frightful Four.
Trapster wears a street gang-type outfit with a black vest-jacket, goggles, and gloves. He carries a paste gun attached to a tank on his back that holds his adhesive.
Trapster likes to make cheesy glue puns. He wants to prove that he could beat Spider-Man on his own with the aid of his paste weaponry.
Peter Petruski was a chemical researcher in New York City. He created a special adhesive and used it to commit crimes. At the time of Spider-Man's one year career, Trapster encountered Spider-Man several times."
Trapster robbed a money car but got ambushed by Spider-Man. Trapster tried to trap Spider-Man in a sticky glue, while in the fight he put a tracer on Spider-Man. Spider-Man then shot a web to the hole of the gun and exploded covering Trapster in glue. After Nick Fury arrived, Trapster tried to escape, but Fury shot a pole which hit Trapster and got knocked out. Trapster then was imprisoned.
His name was mentioned by the remaining Frightful Four members as they searched for Spider-Man in Midtown High school inside the cafeteria. He was also listed by Spider-Man as one of the villains he took down.
Trapster escaped and battled against Spider-Man and his entire team, but was defeated and recaptured. He escaped again and tried to rob a bank, but was captured after his weapon was hit by Captain America's shield. He later mistook Flash Thompson for Spider-Man and was defeated by the real one and put in jail once again. Doctor Octopus later helped him out of prison and he freed the other three before helping capture Spider-Man in a warehouse before they escaped.
