Tyler Stone was the Vice President of Alchemax Corporation, Director of the Research & Development Department at the Alchemax Building in Nueva York.[1] Tyler was secretly the biological father of Miguel O'Hara,[3] an Alchemax scientist who, after having been caught in an explosion which gave him powers like the Heroic Age Spider-Man, became the new incarnation of the superhero in the year 2099.[1]


Origin & Early Years

Not much is known about Tyler's early history. He married Nancy Herod, daughter of an powerful Alchemax Executive, Anthony Herod, for additional wealth or power, and theirs was a mostly loveless marriage.[4][5] Nancy's father, Anthony Herod, was a significant presence in the United States, and someone evoking his name was one of the few things that could give Tyler pause.[2] Around the time Nancy gave birth to their son, Kron, Tyler was having an affair with Conchata O'Hara, wife of one of his employees. Conchata became pregnant and gave birth to Tyler's illegitimate son, Miguel O'Hara, who was raised without knowing who his biological father was. Only Tyler and Conchata knew the secret at first, but Nancy admitted she knew the truth to Conchata when Miguel was a teenager, and the two women inexplicably bonded over their poor taste in men.[5] Later, Conchata once hinted that Tyler was responsible for his wife's demise, and she had evidence she could turn over to Anthony Herod if anything ever happened to her.[3]

Vice President of Alchemax

At some point, Tyler joined Alchemax Corporation. He became part of the Board of Directors, where he covered the role of the Alchemax's Vice President under the C.E.O. Avatarr.[6]

Eventually, Miguel O'Hara grew up to become a genetist working for Tyler at Alchemax on the Corporate Raider Program. When Miguel developed a troubling conscience over human testing, Tyler seemingly had Miguel addicted to the highly potent drug 'Rapture'. Since Alchemax controlled the distribution of Rapture, Tyler was confident Miguel would stay on the program to ensure his supply. Miguel's efforts to rid himself of the addiction using Corporate Raider technologies ended up giving him Spider-Powers, and making him a thorn in Alchemax's side as Spider-Man.[7] Tyler initially told Miguel he had identified Spider-Man as another employee, Aaron Delgato, although there were hints that Tyler knew Miguel's identity even from the beginning. Miguel agreed to return to Alchemax in order to keep access to the tech that made him Spider-Man, in the hopes of reversing it.[8]

Then, Tyler decided to borrow the Stark-Fujikawa Corporation's assassin known as the Specialist to kidnap Kasey Nash in order to lure Spider-Man into battle. However, during the battle against Spider-Man, his throat was accidentally slit as Miguel discovered his new powers included talons.[9]

Tyler's son Kron Stone, chronically neglected and physically abused by the family's robot nanny, grew up to be an amoral murderer. His serial killings took the lives of Jake Gallows' extended family, resulting in his transformation into his era's Punisher. Kron, like many other rich people, has the ability to simply purchase his way out of any legal punishment using his Black Card credit. This did not save him from death at Jake's hands.[10] Tyler did not mourn his son's death: he simply flushed what he believes were his son's ashes down the toilet. Kron's real body had encountered and merged with a symbiotic entity believed to be the original Venom.[11]

Miguel later infiltrated Tyler's mansion, unexpectedly overhearding his own mother conversing with him, and learned that he was actually Tyler's biological son due to an illicit affair his mother once had with him years ago. He also discovered that the Rapture drug he was given was actually a simulated dose, simply meant to scare Miguel into staying employed by Alchemax. Miguel was never given actual Rapture, and his attempt to cure himself of the drug was unnecessary.[3]

One Nation Under Doom

When Victor von Doom took control of the White House, becoming the new President of the United States, he decided to organise a meeting with all of the Executives of the American MegaCorps, including Alchemax's Chief Executive Avatarr and Vice President Tyler Stone. During that meeting, Doom decided that all of the MegaCorps had to be controlled from that moment only by the President himself. Then, he decided that he was going to kill one of the Executives, as demostration of his power. Here, under Tyler's advice, Doom finally killed Avatarr, who showed up to be an alien.[12]

Stone then became Doom's minister of MegaCorporations' activities at his Black Cabinet,[2] secretly working at the same time with his father-in-law Anthony Herod and his Chicago Reserve to overthrow Doom, financing the creation of a fake Captain America which would have been used by Herod as his personal puppet President.[13]

Having become the C.E.O. of Alchemax after Avatarr's death, Tyler decided to choose and select his biological son Miguel as the new Vice President and Director of Research & Development Division, a position that he gladly accepted.[2]

When Tyler returned home to his new lover, Dana D'Angelo, was shoot by his former lover Conchata, Miguel's mother, and mistakenly believed to be dead.[2] Instead, Tyler was recovered in an hospital in Nueva York. During this time, a comatose Tyler was approached by his believed deceased son Kron, returned as Venom, who tried to kill him, but he was saved by Miguel as Spider-Man.[11]

Last Days

When Tyler awoke from his comatose state, he tried to regain control of Alchemax from his son Miguel. However, since Miguel wanted to keep his position to use Alchemax's resourches in a better way, he had doctors identifying Tyler as mentally disable. Tyler was took out from the Alchemax Building and Miguel became the new C.E.O. of Alchemax.[14][15]

Later, Tyler had a meeting with Conchata, now Miguel's secretary at Alchemax. Here, he was going to be killed by her, but his life was saved by Miguel himself. At that point, after admitting that he knew from the beginning that Miguel was Spider-Man, he disappeared, revealing to be only an advanced hologram.[16]

Death

When Nueva York was compleatly flooded by the forces of the Atlanteans led by Attuma, Tyler tried to escape in his personal Colony on planet Mars, but he was killed in the attempt by the Atlantean General Dagim.[17]
