Peter then told Agent Ford that Felicia was taken by a man with four mechanical arms. However, Ford did not believe his story until Felicia's mother, Anastasia Hardy, told him that the ransom nte was written by an ex-Hardy Foundation employee named Otto Octavius.
When J. Jonah Jameson agreed to help get Felicia back by going on television to tell Doctor Octopus that he was willing to meet his demands Ford told Jameson to keep Doctor Octopus talking so the F.B.I. could get a trace on him. Eventually, Spider-Man was able to defeat Doctor Octopus and save Felicia Hardy and with her rescued Ford's assignment was completed.
- Agent Ford was an original character created specifically for Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
