Villain Overview

Molten Man is an enemy of Spider-Man a villain from Marvel comics.

Biography

Mark Raxton, a lab assistant who created an experimental metal alloy, was changed when the substance accidentally spilled on him, giving him superhuman strength and molten-metal skin. He could heat his body up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and create molten lava from his skin.

He used his new powers to his advantage and went on a crime spree, but was stopped by Spider-Man. Since then, he has battled Spidey several times.

He has recently been regretting his criminal activities, most of all a murder he committed while being brainwashed by the Green Goblin.

During the Marvel civil war, when Spider-Man revealed his identity publicly, Raxton was approached by Chameleon, another of Spidey's foes, and was asked to join his little group of supervillains seeking to destroy Peter Parker. Raxton at first refused, as he now had a normal life and didn't want to be a criminal anymore. But when Chameleon threatened to have Electro kill Raxton's son, he gave in and joined as Molten Man. The group was defeated by Spider-Man and Black Cat.

Powers and Abilities

  • Superhuman Strength: Molten Man can lift 40 tons.
  • Invulnerability: Molten Man can withstand temperatures of 500° Fahrenheit at most for a long duration, incredibly difficult to injury (resistant to high caliber bullets). Spider-Man's webs are unable to stick to Molten Man's alloy coated skin.
  • Intelligence: Molten Man is a very smart scientist who has graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering, and assisted Dr. Smythe in developing the metallic alloy which covers his skin. In addition, Molten Man is an expert safe cracker by using his metallic fingertips which are sensitive to metal sounds in locks.
  • Heat Generation: Molten Man has displayed the ability to emit dangerous and deadly radiation, as well as being able to radiate heat up to 300° Fahrenheit. The skin of Molten Man has gotten so hot that it literally melted off of him.
