The origin of Super Villains: Molten Man

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molten_Man

Molten Man (Mark Raxton) is a fictional character, a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

A creature based on "Molten Man" appeared in the 2019 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was actually an illusion created by a series of drones operated by Mysterio.

The character was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #28 (September 1965).[1]

Mark Raxton was born in New York City. He was a scientist who could not wait to use his skills to become rich, and once worked at Oscorp Industries, as the laboratory assistant to Dr. Spencer Smythe, creator of the Spider-Slayers. Raxton and Smythe developed an experimental new liquid metallic alloy for the Spider-Slayers from a radioactive meteor, but Raxton attempted to steal it and sell it for his own profit. In the ensuing fight with Smythe in the laboratory, Raxton spilled the liquid alloy all over himself, his skin absorbing it and turning golden. Fearing for his life, Raxton ran for the nearest hospital, only to discover that the alloy had changed him for the better when he angrily punched an irate motorist's hood, buckling it. Realizing the great potential his new abilities afforded him, Raxton, now calling himself the Molten Man, turned to crime to further his monetary gains. Peter Parker, as Spider-Man, was forced to nearly miss his high school graduation to stop the Molten Man's first crime spree.[2] He was released from jail before long, only to continue his criminal activities. However, he was once again defeated by Spider-Man.[3]
