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.
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.
