Quote1 And that, Spider-Man, is how I win. One life. One random person on the street below. That's all I need to get away. And body after body, they'll give me what I want. Because you're weak. All of you. Because you're stupid enough to care. Quote2

Marcus prior to the Accident

Marcus and his wife were accidentally harmed during an attack on his Wall Street trading company for losing client's money. Marcus survived, but his wife did not. Shrapnel was fixed within his brain, causing him to feel virtually no human connection whatsoever.

With his new lease on life, he escaped an institution and began attacking people, eventually even shooting Spider-Man. He was ultimately defeated when Spider-Man used a combination of a bullet-proof suit and magnetic webbing.

Following his arrest, he was placed in Ravencroft Institute. However, he soon escaped, killing Dr. Ashley Kafka in the process.[1] He ends up confronting the CEO of a restaurant he shot up with an offer - 12 million dollars to go into New York City and shoot people up while wearing the logo of her competitor, which she accepts. Otto Octavius, now Spider-Man, is able to track him down once more in Grand Central Station and manages to save the rest of the civilians, takes his gun, and shoots him in the shoulder and holds him at gunpoint.

Having the man who once told him that he wouldn't let anyone else die having him held at gunpoint causes him to tear up and experience fear for the first time since his accident.

Despite Peter begging Spider-Man to spare him, the web-slinger pulls the trigger, putting an end to the mass murderer once and for all.[2]


Unable to feel emotions for his common man, Marcus had no problem killing innocent people.


He used guns and bombs.
