Early Life

Drake Shannon (Earth-616) from Marvel Team-Up Vol 1 15 0001

His real face

Drake Shannon was the former partner of Crash Simpson who was horribly maimed after a motorcycle accident.[1]

The Orb

Then he tried to claim ownership for the motorcycle show he believed he should have the rights to, but was defeated by the efforts of both Spider-Man and Ghost Rider.[1]

He became a professional criminal, principally fighting the Ghost Rider for revenge, attacking the Delazny Studios,[2] or even inflicting Rozanne Simpson with amnesia.[3]


He then battled Hawkeye, who pursued him into the Mojave Desert. Both found a large metal dome, the base of Plantman. Plantman tried to kill them, but Hawkeye forced Smithers to escape. While in the desert, Orb and Hawkeye encountered a group of Plantman simulacra that had replaced the Orb's gang.[4] Believing they were the originals, Orb ordered them to kill Hawkeye, but they instead opened fire on him, apparently killing him.[5]

Bar with No Name

He did in fact survive and some time later was seen in the Bar with No Name playing pool with Taskmaster and one of Red Ghost's Super-Apes.[6]
