Scorpion is one of many clones of Peter Parker. His first appearance was an attack on a mall, taking down several cops with acid. After a battle with the true Spider-Man his mask fell off, revealing Peter Parker's face. Afterwards he was held in the Baxter Building while the Fantastic Four conducted research into his existence. It appeared that his costume was bullet proof and his tail was grafted into his spinal column. When Scorpion was awake enough to answer questions, Reed and Sue asked where he came from and how he came to be. His only response was asking where he was now, and if he was back in the "Zoo".[1]

While Scorpion didn't recognize Peter in the Spider-Man costume, he did seem to have some of Peter's memories. He repeated the phrase "Who are you, masked mystery man? Unveil yourself to the crowd!" which had been said to Peter Parker earlier. Also, Scorpion encountered Mary Jane Watson in the Baxter Building and said her name before passing out. These were the only indications Scorpion gave of having Peter's memories. Nick Fury had him and the Gwen Stacy in containment. Fury told a S.H.I.E.L.D. officer to "get to work."[2]

  • Scorpion's Suit: He uses an acid that erupts from his tail as well as acid shooters on his upper hand, similar to Spider-Man's web shooters. His design is very close to the original Mac Gargan incarnation of the Scorpion, with the exception of sleekness to the design, and a dome like hunch which becomes the dangerous tail, giving the appearance of an actual scorpion's exo-skeleton. The tail was also fused to his spinal cord, which Invisible Woman of the Ultimate Fantastic Four referred to as an "illegal biograft". His costume's lenses were similar to Spidey's lenses.


  • After the Clone Saga he was not heard of again. The Gwen Stacy clone was later released as she was shown to almost be the original Gwen (having the memories of Gwen) she was last seen to be very much alive, this could mean that this Peter clone is still alive.
