Funkmaster V was born in my youth with my fascination with the bands on Soul Train, the ABA, the 4 Horsemen and this comic book cover. Thanks to the future we live in and the internet, I FINALLY found this afro-clad super villain re-discovered that his name was Rocket Racer. I have also found out that most Spidey fans hate this villan turn hero, and that this era of Spiderman sucks. I say they are always trying to keep a brother down. I hope my reign as the Defender of the Funk in pro wrestling and in funk-bassin' did this minor comic book character proud.
