Delmar ran and operated a deli in Queens, with his sandwiches being touted as the best the borough had to offer. Peter Parker was one of his regular customers, who visited after school to buy food. Parker's frequent visits caused him and Delmar to form a friendship, as well as familiarize Delmar with Parker's aunt May, whom he held an interest in. Delmar also came to know Aaron Davis as well due to his frequent visits to his Deli.[1]

Delmar called the police and alerted them to the situation at Queens Community Bank across the street. Suddenly, his bodega was destroyed by one of the robbers' weapons, though Spider-Man was able to save Delmar and his cat, Murph, from the flaming wreckage.[1]
