David "Styx" Taylor was a 19-year-old hustler[1] to whom ex-Roxxon employee Gerald Stone provided an untested drug. When the side-effects of the drug started affecting Styx, and began to slowly kill him, he and Stone went to an old Roxxon outpost so Styx could be fixed. However, the outpost had been taken over by the Serpent Skulls, who were confronted by Styx and Stone.

The scuffle caught the attention of the Young Ultimates, who fought Styx and Stone, and later of some NYPD detectives who were on Stone's trail, who arrived to the scene and interrupted the fight.

Styx tried to attack Spider-Man from behind, but his attack was dodged and ended up striking detective Terry Schreck. He was then quickly shot down and killed by Brigid O'Reilly.[1]

Powers

Acid touch: Styx can fatally injure and disfigure whoever he touches. Leaving them with an appearance similar to his.[1] The touch is powerful enough to affect super humans like Cloak, who wasn't disfigured or critically harmed by Styx's touch, but incapacitated.[1]
