Bio:
Spencer Smythe was an inventor of the original Spider-Slayer. He managed to convince J. Jonah Jameson to use it in his campaign against Spider-Man. He also worked with Mark Raxton on creating a liquid metallic alloy for the Spider-Slayers, which eventually turned Raxton into the Molten Man.

Smythe would go on to make several versions of the Spider-Slayers for Jameson, but in the end, they would all fail to defeat Spider-Man.

Smythe would appear years later, suffering from radiation poisoning from materials used in his Spider-Slayers. He wanted to take revenge on J. Jonah Jameson and kidnapped his son John and controlled him to attack the senior Jameson. After this failed and John disappeared, Smythe shackled Jameson and Spider-Man together to a bomb. He set the timer to go off after twenty-four hours because he wanted to see them die, but ultimately he died before this happened. Spider-Man and Jameson survived by unlocking themselves from the bomb.

Later, his son Alistaire would take up the mantle of creating Spider-Slayers to use against Spider-Man as revenge for his father's death.
