Sparky manifested at an art museum and slimed various exhibits, mainly priceless statues. When the Ghostbusters arrived, it attempted to slime Peter but was physically deflected. Amazingly, Peter was able to overpower it with his bare hands, and manually inserted it into an open Ghost Trap without being harmed. After the bust, Peter realized he had super powers and crafted a costumed identity, Venk-Man.
