How Did One of Spider-Man's Greatest Enemies Become His...Roommate?
Catch up on Boomerang's wild ride as you read 'Amazing Spider-Man' #27!
Fred Myers is Peter Parker's roommate. He's also the villain called Boomerang. And in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #27, a small army of baddies led by Beetle are gunning for him—and Spidey.

Along the way, he got ahold of Betty Ross, which did not sit well with the Hulk, and the two came into contact the following issue.
