Supervillain Origins: Mysterio
Quentin Beck was once a Hollywood Stuntman, before becoming one of the most talented special effects wizards in the industry. Unable to garner significant attention or recognition for his talents, he decided to change career paths. However, he soon realized that he didn’t have the looks to make it as an actor, nor the patience to become a director. Frustrated, he soon decided to use his expertise in theatrics and illusion to become a costumed superhero. As New York City already had a champion, Beck decided to undermine and replace Spider-Man, by framing the hero for crimes that he didn’t commit.
