History

As a writer for the school newspaper young Robertson was harrased by Lonnie Lincoln, eventually to become Tombstone, for writing a story exposing him as a criminal. Robbie withdrew the story and when he watched Tombstone murder someone first hand did not tell the police or anyone else out of fear of what Tombstone might do to him if he found out.
During his teens he was a boy racer known as "Rocket Robertson" who was known to regularly outrun the Police[1] Many years later Robertson got a job at "The Daily Bugle" first as city editor, then as editor-in-chief after J. Jonah Jameson's resignation. However he could not keep his secret forever and after Tombstone began killing people in New York Robertson confessed to the police he had been a witness to Tombstone's earlier crimes and concealed evidence. Robertson was ent to jail where he became friends with "Bruiser," his muscular cellmate. Bruiser was killed by Tombstone who was in jail due to Robbie's testimony against him. Tombstone then engineered a jailbreak and forced Robbie to participate in it. The jailbreak was interrupted by Spider-man and Robbie and Tombstone fell out of a helicopter, landing in the river. Robbie was found by a farmer, with whom he stayed until he had fully recovered. However the peace did not last long for Tombstone had also found the farm.
