Origin

Hollywood stuntman Quentin Beck had mastered every challenge his field could offer and grew bored with his backstage role. Looking to make a name for himself Beck studied the fledgling crime fighter Spider-Man and made his public appearance as Mysterio.


After being incarcerated at Ravencroft Psychiatric Hospital, Beck was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer as a result of the chemicals he had used over the years. Desiring one last challenge before his death he tormented one time foe Daredevil - and ended his life via suicide.


Long before his death Beck trained his cousin Maguire Beck and another stuntman named Dan Berkhart. When Beck had faked his death at one point; Berkhart was hired by Daily Bugle publisher J. J. Jameson to impersonate the ghost of Mysterio.


After Berkhart was incarcerated he and Maguire Beck turned their vengeance against Jameson by both donning the identity of Jack O'Lantern - but Berkhart abandoned the identity and returned to the role of Mysterio.
