-- Mysterio src

Earlier in his life, Mysterio worked as special effects designer with the desire of becoming a successful actor. At some point he turned into a criminal, and became one of Spider-Man's foes.

Mysterio eventually joined the Sinister Six alongside a group of villains that frequently fought Spider-Man.

Web of Wonders

When the Green Goblin, and Doctor Octopus plans were thwarted by Spider-Man, and they defected the team to join the Avengers Academy, Mysterio took the opportunity to seize the team leadership since Doctor Octopus, and Green Goblin weren't obstacles anymore.

Mysterio tried to attack the Avengers Academy by using his hallucinogenic gas, but Spider-Man crafted gas masks to protect himself from it's effects, who along with Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man 2099, help defeated Mysterio.

After being defeated time, and time again in humiliating fashion, Mysterio was invited into the Academy to re invent himself, and use his skills for good. Upon joining the Academy he was still failing at everything, and getting humiliated by everyone, entering into a depressed state due to that. Noticing he was depressed Wasp approached him, and asked him to put on a magic show for her, she complimented him after the show, and because of that Mysterio got some newfound motivation. With this boost of confidence Mysterio decided that his new goal was not to just his skills for good, but to also be the ultimate entertainer.[1]

  • Loki's nickname for Mysterio was Mr. E.O..[1]
