"These days, you can be the smartest guy in the room, the most qualified, and no one cares. Unless you're flying around with a cape, or shooting lasers with your hands, no one will even listen. Well, I've got a cape and lasers. With our technology, and with you, Mysterio will be the greatest hero on Earth!"


Mysterio is a fictional character based on the comic book supervillian of the same name who appears in Marvel Comics.

Quentin Beck was a former Stark Industries employee who worked for Tony Stark. He was the one who created the B.A.R.F. technology who Tony Stark took as his own, Beck was furious Tony then called him unstable, and fired him from Stark Industries. Beck staged several Elemental catastrophes across the world with the use of his suit, drones and hologram technology, seeking attention from the public as a new superhero named Mysterio.

Beck used his skills in illusions and trickery to gain the trust of "Nick Fury" and Spider-Man. After his fraudulence was uncovered, and his plan to continue his adventures across the continent of Europe was revealed, Beck had proven himself to be a worthy adversary to Spider-Man, however his arrogance eventually proved to be his downfall, leading into his eventual defeat. Beck then succeeded his extra plan in exposing Spider-Man's identity to the world, as he sent modified footage of their fight to the Daily Bugle.

"You guys do have sarcasm on this Earth, right? I like you, Peter, you're a good kid. There's a part of me that wants me to tell you to just turn around and run away from all of this and then there's another part of me which knows what we're about to fight and what's in stake. Saving the world requires sacrifice."
―Mysterio to Spider-Man[src]
