Escorting Peter Parker.

During the events surrounding the Avengers Civil War, Hogan continued to be employed at Stark Industries, continuing to be the Head of Security but aspiring to be promoted to asset management. When Tony Stark recruited Peter Parker to assist in the fight between his team and Captain America's team, Hogan accompanied Parker on the private plane to Germany and introduced him to the new suit designed for him by Stark.[5]

Monitoring Spider-Man

Two months later, Hogan had been promoted to asset management as requested and was assigned to oversee the removal of all items and technology from Avengers Tower after Stark sold the building to move to the New Avengers Facility in upstate New York. Hogan was also Peter Parker's primary contact as he started his crime-fighting career, and duly relayed all of Parker's messages to Stark.

Hijacking of the Stark Cargo Plane

On moving day, Hogan oversaw the loading of all of the items due to be moved onto the cargo plane. He was contacted by Parker's friend Ned Leeds, who tried to warn him that the plane was in danger, but he brushed off the warning. After seeing it off, the plane was hijacked by the Vulture and subsequently crashed on Coney Island after Spider-Man intervened. When Hogan arrived at the crash sight with the FBI, he found Adrian Toomes webbed and restrained on the side of a car, with a note from Spider-Man reading: "Found the Flying Vulture Guy. P.S. Sorry about your plane."[5]

Parker's Rejection.

Days later, Hogan appeared at Parker's school to personally apologize for not listening to his warnings, and to thank him for saving his job. He then took Parker on a ride to the New Avengers Facilitywhere Tony Stark intended to announce Spider-Man to the world as the newest official member of the Avengers.

However, Parker declined the invitation and left the building to wait in the car for a ride home. Pepper Potts reminded Hogan and Stark that there was a room full of press expecting an announcement; Stark asked Hogan if he was still carrying an engagement ring, and intended to give them it. However, Potts was unimpressed by the tactic and assured the two that she would think of something better. Despite Potts word, Hogan tossed the ring to Stark as a last-case measure.[5] After Stark publicly proposed to Potts, Hogan was given the job of keeping the paparazzi at bay while the wedding was planned.[6]

Elemental Attacks.

Helping at Salvation Army[]

At a charity event in New York City, Hogan traveled there to meet Spider-Man. After presenting May Parker with a large check, he told Peter Parker that Nick Fury was calling him. After Parker opted to hang up on Fury without answering, Hogan strongly advised against "ghosting" Fury.

Battle of London[]

After picking up Parker, who was stranded in the Netherlands after barely surviving Mysterio's plot to kill him, Parker instructed Hogan to fly to London, where the fifth Elemental attack was going to happen. On the way there, Parker built himself a new Spider-Man suit with Stark's old technology while Hogan flew. During the battle, Hogan landed the plane and tried to help rescue Parker's friends, Ned Leeds, Michelle Jones, and Flash Thompson. However, one of Mysterio's drones destroyed their plane and chased them into the vault of the Royal Crown Jewels. Inside, Hogan, believing it to be his final moments, confessed he was in love with Spider-Man's aunt. However, Parker was able to deactivate the drones to save them.

Returning to New York[]

Back in New York, Parker demanded an explanation from Hogan and his Aunt May about their relationship. May described it as a fling, wheras Hogan said that he thought they had a long-term connection. Parker would leave to go on his own date while Hogan and May debated.
