So saith Hobbyfan last Monday, and little did he/she/it know that the subject of his/her/its inquiry was, in fact, this Marvel Monday's featured subject. The Human Fly!
My oh my...they simply inverted the color scheme of old Thomas Troy's under-roos! Now that's Not Brand Eck moxy for ol' Stan the Man! And each battled a Spider...Man and Spry!
Per Marvel's Wiki entry for this character here is a quick bio for him:
- Richard Deacon, a small-time criminal out on parole, was shot by the police and left for dead after his unsuccessful kidnapping attempt was foiled by Spider-Man. Stumbling into the laboratory of Dr. Harlan Stillwell, Deacon coerced the scientist into saving his life. Stillwell imprinted the genetic coding of a common fly onto Deacon, empowering him and healing him of his bullet wounds. Deacon killed Stillwell and used his newfound powers to further his criminal ambitions. He first used Jameson as bait to get revenge on Spider-Man, but his inexperience was no match for the web-slinger and he was defeated.
