Maximus Gargan is on the FBI's Most Wanted list, having fled the country before a federal case could be brought up against him for accusations of murder, assault, and racketeering. Those who fear him call Maximus Gargan the Scorpion.
Upon arriving in New York City, he began to form a plot to become the city's new Kingpin of Crime. The Prowler discovered his nephew was the new Spider-Man and forced him to defeat the Scorpion in order not to tell his parents the truth.
Powers and Abilities
- Superhuman Durability: Scorpion possesses very resistant skin. Although not truly invulnerable, he was able to shake off multiple bullet and blade wounds.
- Superhuman Strength: Scorpion seems to possess strength superior to a normal human. He was able to slam Miles into the floor hard enough to destroy it.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Scorpion healing abilities are far superior to those of a normal human, after being repeatedly stabbed by blades during his battle with Prowler he was completely healed in a few days, still they appear to have limits since he can't heal the scar on his face and his right eye.
- Skilled Combatant: Scorpion is a formidable combatant, especially when wielding his bladed chain.
Metal Scorpion Stinger attached to chain
- This interpretation of Scorpion might have been the main influence behind the character as it appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming, since both are simply hardened criminals with a face scar and tattoos, as well as a former working relationship with Aaron Davis.
