Scorpion, real name Mac Gargan, is a super-criminal whose powers are augmented by scorpion DNA. He is equipped with a green battle-suit that comes with a tail that can discharge a solution of concentrated hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid.


Mac Gargan was a petty thief who became the subject of a Kingpin-funded experiment; his DNA was integrated with that of a scorpion – Gargan gained proportional strength and reflexes, but the process turned him insane. As the Scorpion, he became the frequent enemy of Spider-Man.

Scorpion later joins the Sinister Six in an attempt to steal the Lexo-Skel 3000, and battles the Justice League; however, Scorpion's own anger got the best of him that was taken advantage by the Batman, who immobilized his tail with the help of the Martian Manhunter, and defeated the criminal.[1]

Background informationEdit

In Marvel Comics, Scorpion was a private investigator who was hired by J. Jonah Jameson to find out how Peter Parker was able to obtain the photos of Spider-Man. When Spider-Man evaded Mac Gargan, J. Jonah Jameson decided to use Mac Gargan as a test subject for an experiment done by Farley Stillwell which led to Mac Gargan becoming the Scorpion in order to defeat Spider-Man.
