Hazmat, also known as Keith Kilham, is a fictional character created by Electronic Arts, in conjunction with Marvel Comics, in their first attempt to bring Marvel heroes to a video game platform, Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. Hazmat, along with a line of EA created villains known as the "Imperfects", can be fought against, and is also an unlockable character.
Doctor Keith Kilham was a scientist working for The Pentagon to find a cure for the world's deadliest diseases. Kilham's lab was compromised by a terrorist attack during a tricky biological test. Safety containment procedures were rendered useless. Kilham then injected himsel with all of the synthetic antigens that he had created. His body started to deteriorate. Soon, Niles Van Roekel kidnapped Kilham because he was interested in his condition. Using nanites, Roekel's scientist created a microbondic shell for Kilham's extremities and they salvaged what they could from his organs. And thus, the terrifying Hazmat was born. Hazmat is driven by the desire to find a cure as he believes it is his curse to be alive.

During the Imperfect invasion, Hazmat defeated Venom and would go on to attempt and take back Paragon to Niles Van Roekel. However, he failed at this after being defeated by Magneto. During the course of the game, Spider-Man defeats him as well but continues on his attempts to fulfil his master's plans.
