At first, Fusion seemed an almost unbeatable villain being able to replicate the powers of any other hero or villain. Examples of such powers are Doctor Octopus' Tentacles, Hulk's fists, Thor's Hammer, Wolverine's claws, Captain America's shield, Mister Fantastic's elasticity, and much more. Home alone amongst his vast super-powered character artifacts, a deep hatred inside of him burns hotter by the minute. He once had a son who tried to emulate his idol Spider-Man, and in doing so fell to his death trying to swing from atop a meat storage facility using a piece of string. Markley blamed Spider-Man for his death and sought revenge. He wound up giving Spider-Man a great beating and seemingly broke his neck, but it was all for naught as Spider-Man finally realized that Fusion had no such replicating powers but only the power of suggestion. Fusion's power had no effect on Spider-Man after this realization, but Fusion got away in the end anyway. Fusion later tried to trick Doctor Octopus into being his lackey, but it wasn't to be, as Ock was too intelligent for him. He paid him back with a near-death beating.
