Mac Gargan used to be a run-of-the-mill street criminal and not an especially good one. He later signed up for an untested procedure to fuse his body with a mechanized combat suit, funded by J.Jonah Jameson, in order to combat Spider-Man. The process made Gargan stronger and faster than naturally possible, but also exacberated his rage and aggression. He soon became one of the many villains that Spider-Man defeated and was eventually incarcerated in the Raft, spending years locked away.
In 2018, during the Devil's Breath crisis in New York City, Scorpion was released by Doctor Octopus, who made him part of the Sinister Six, a supervillain group formed as part of his revenge plan on Mayor Norman Osborn. After joining the other members to battle his old enemy Spider-Man on the rooftop of the Raft, He was sent with Rhino to destroy the city. Scorpion was first sent to attack and poison the city's reservoir. Spider-Man went to investigate, only to be attacked and poisoned by him. Hallucinating due to the neurotoxin, Spider-Man went through the city, managing to reach Octavius Industries, where he could develop an antiserum to Scorpion's venom. Later, Scorpion and Rhino proceeded to attack another Sable International outpost, now near the George Washington Bridge, only to be ambushed by Spider-Man once more, who after a difficult battle, defeated both by locking them on a container together. After that, he was arrested and sent again to the Raft.
