Demolisher (Charles) (Earth-77013) Spider-Man Newspaper Strips 001

Charles the chauffeur

The Demolisher was actually Charles, the chauffeur of businessman Howard Ryland. Charles was resentful of Ryland for not being recognized as the one who had the idea to open a chain of computer stores. So for revenge he invented and built an exoskeleton that he wore thus becoming the Demolisher and began to set fire to the Ryland Computers' stores and trying to lay the blame on Howard's brother, John. Finally, the Demolisher was defeated and captured by Spider-Man that unmasked him and had him arrested.


Charles has no powers of his own but they are derived from his Demolisher exoskeleton.
