Looking like a cast member from "Happy Days", Man Mountain Marko was introduced as Silvermane's right hand man in the original ancient tablet storyline in Amazing Spider-Man #73 and quickly established himself as a second rate villain in the Spider-Verse. With super-strength as his only fighting asset, he was quickly disposed of by Spider-Man and then Power Man in Power Man & Ironfist #61 & 62. He came back in a minor appearance in Power Man & Ironfist #110 before being featured in Web Of Spider-Man #82 where it was discovered that he was genetically altered by the Maggia as well as being supplied steroids. Most recently, he has appeared as one of the players in the limited series Lifeline which is a continuation of the ancient tablet storyline.
