Dr. Farley Stillwell was a scientist who tested radioactivity and neogenics. At a demonstration which was attended by Peter Parker, Stillwell irradiated a spider which led to the creation of Spider-Man.

Stillwell was later hired by J. Jonah Jameson to transform Mac Gargan into a supervillain capable of eliminating Spider-Man. Stillwell chose to experiment with Gargan's DNA and that of a scorpion's, since the scorpion was a natural predator of the spider. This created the Scorpion, who eventually went on a rampage after realising he'd become a monster. Stillwell was unable to reverse Gargan's transformation and the neogenic research was eventually destroyed by Stillwell who didn't want to risk the creation of any more beings like Scorpion.
