First Appearance: Journey Into Mystery I#99 (December, 1963)
Powers/Abilities: A talented biochemist, Calvin Zabo has used different chemical concoctions over the years to transform himself into the monstrous Mr. Hyde, who possesses vast super human strength, durability, and recuperative powers. The chemical transformation involves Zabo's cells manufacturing mutated hormones, added vast bulk through the painful transformation, which takes about 30 seconds. During the transformation, Zabo's skin is stretched over this new bulk, distorting his appearance, altering his appearance and even his fingerprints. As Hyde, Zabo's bestial nature takes over and he becomes savage and ruthless. After his initial transformation, Hyde possessed the power of 12 men, and he subsequently doubled this power by adding an emerald to his serum; he has since become much stronger, though his abilities seem to directly relate to the serum he most recently ingested. Hyde must occasionally ingest a new serum to remain as Hyde; though he generally drinks the serum, he can inject it into his bloodstream as well. Hyde's powers were briefly doubled by Loki. Hyde briefly used Mutant Growth Hormone to enhance his abilities, though an overdose caused him to collapse from vastly increased strength and bulk. Hyde seemingly possesses some sort of healing factor, as he has recovered quickly from severe injuries. He possesses his chemist skills as both Zabo and Hyde, even having created a potion that blinded Daredevil once, canceling out the hero's radar powers; in addition, Zabo successfully designed a serum that would replicate Spider-Man's powers in numerous test subjects. Zabo is also a talented inventor, having created technological weapons such as chemical irritant sprays, a power-sapper, and the Time Reversal Ray, which would allow its user to witness the events of the recent past when it was fired on a subject. It has been theorized that Hyde is much more violent and powerful when a long period of time goes between transformations. Mr. Hyde’s body eventually began producing the transformation serum naturally, making his change back to Zabo difficult.
Height: (Zabo) 5'11"; (Hyde) 6'5"
Weight: (Zabo) 185 lbs.; (Hyde) 420 lbs.
Hair: (Zabo) grey; (Hyde) brown

(Secret War#2/2 (fb) - BTS) - Zabo began experimenting on himself, altering his genome. He impregnated a prostitute, Jennifer Johnson, who gave birth to Daisy Johnson. Daisy grew up in foster care and later developed super powers due to her altered genome. She'd eventually become Quake of SHIELD.
(Journey into Mystery I#99 (fb)) - Zabo visited the famous lame doctor Donald Blake, planning to get a job with him and then return to rob him later. Blake refused to hire him, however, and had nurse Jane Foster show him out.
(Journey into Mystery I#99 (fb) - BTS) - Zabo began working on his chemicals over the following months.
(Journey into Mystery I#99 (fb)) - Finally perfecting his serum, Zabo drank it and fond himself transformed into a monstrous version of himself, giving him the power of 12 men. He noted that even his fingerprints had changed and planned to commit crimes, then turn back to Zabo before anyone could capture him.
(Journey into Mystery I#99) - Hyde watched Thor leave New York, then he went to find Donald Blake to get his revenge. He smashed into Blake's office and demanded Foster show him into Blake. When she refused, he smashed into Blake's private room, then knocked Blake out the window, noting that Blake had grabbed his cane on the way. Hyde ripped open Blake's safe, stealing its contents, then rushed off. He returned to his headquarters to plot his next heist when he heard on the radio that Thor had saved Blake. Furious, he planned to destroy Thor. The next day, Hyde disguised himself as Thor and broke into a bank, taking a fortune and crushing one of the guard's guns on his way out. The entire city turned against Thor.
(Journey into Mystery I#100) - Hyde followed Blake and Foster on their date to the Ritz Terrace, where he forced them into his car at gunpoint. He explained that he hated Blake for being honest, hard-working, and successful while he was the evil nature of man personified. He forced Blake to drive them to his deserted castle headquarters, where he tied Blake to a pole and set a time-bomb for 24 hours later. He then forced Foster to accompany him in stealing a Polaris Submarine from the East River Naval Yard, planning on being king of the seas with she as his queen. As he overpowered the guards, Hyde threatened Foster if they didn't back off. As he prepared to take Foster aboard the submarine, Thor attacked. Foster hit Thor square on with a large piece of metal, then rushed into the submarine with Foster with Thor in hot pursuit. Hyde snuck up on Thor, restraining him with jagged metal. Thor flipped Hyde over his shoulder, then Hyde retrieved his handgun, which was blown out of his hand when Thor created a small tornado by spinning his cape quickly. As Foster begged Thor to let Hyde escape so Blake could live, Hyde jumped off the submarine and escaped.
(Journey into Mystery I#105 (fb) - BTS) - Over the following weeks, Zabo worked to make his chemicals even more powerful. He invited the Time Reversal Ray as well, which, when shot at a target, would show images of their last actions moving backwards in time.
(Journey into Mystery I#105) - Zabo was mixing chemicals in his Manhattan apartment when Cobra snuck in through the window. Before he could be attacked, Zabo drank his potion and changed into Hyde. Cobra, shocked, was thrown aside by Hyde, who shrugged off the nerve gas vial Cobra threw. Cobra wrapped himself around Hyde, who knocked him into the equipment. When the villains realized they were both enemies of Thor, they decided to join forces against their foe. Hyde showed Cobra the Time Reversal Ray, demonstrating it on him, and they planned to use it on Thor so they could find his headquarters and attack him at their leisure. Seeking to lure Thor into the Ray's beam, Hyde broke into a jewelry store and the hero attacked him. Hyde used chemical irritant sprays from under his shirt to hit Thor in the eyes, then he quickly escaped by turning into Zabo. Cobra, meanwhile, hit Thor with the Ray. They followed Thor's image backwards in time to the window of Don Blake, zooming in on the logo of the window; they were frustrated that the Ray didn't take them back farther. They rushed to Blake's office and threatened to harm him unless he confessed Thor's whereabouts, but he refused until Foster came in. Foster instructed them to take his walking stick from the cabinet and to tap the cane as they looked out the window; when they did, Blake switched to Thor without them seeing and the can switched to Thor's hammer, pulling a shocked Hyde to the floor. Thor, stating that Blake had run for it, leapt at the villains as Cobra rushed up the side of the building and Hyde fled to the Auto Junk Yard nearby. As Thor followed Hyde, Hyde tried using a small ultra-wave transmitter to attract Thor's hammer, then Hyde fled into the nearby Coliseum, which was showcasing a machine show. Throwing bulky machines at Thor, Hyde laughed that Thor wouldn't hurt innocents while Cobra snuck into a hydraulic hoist machine, ensnaring Thor's hammer. Knowing that man couldn't lift Thor's hammer, they laughed that the machine had it and prepared to attack.
(Journey into Mystery I#106) - Thor knocked the villains off-balance by ripping up the floor, then the hero fled into the crowd. A furious Hyde grabbed a microphone as the police surrounded the building and yelled into it that he would attack the crowd unless Thor showed himself. Blake revealed himself and stated that he would show them how to find Thor if Hyde would retrieve Blake's cane from the hydraulic machine. After Hyde violently silenced the crowd, Cobra worked his way into the complex machine, but couldn't retrieve the cane, so Hyde tore it apart and got it himself. Blake took the cane and fled, soon returning as Thor. As Hyde got a powerful sprayer machine, Cobra evaded Thor's hammer, soon getting caught in its thong and pulled toward the hero. Hyde activated the sprayer, knocking Thor off his feet until the hero destroyed the machine. Thor threw Cobra into Hyde as the police swarmed the building. Realizing he was outclassed, Hyde took the potion that turned him into Zabo and quietly escaped. Cobra was soon arrested. Zabo followed Thor for a time, soon turning into Hyde again, reversing his jacket to complete his costume. He ripped out a lamppost and knocked Thor's hammer away, but the hero rushed at him, tossing Hyde through a wall and punching him repeatedly as he easily evaded Hyde's blows. Within sixty seconds, Thor had spun Hyde over his head and knocked him out against a wall, leaving him to be arrested.
(Journey into Mystery I#110) - Loki paid the half million dollar bail for Hyde and Cobra, making them automatically suspicious. He revealed himself as Thor's half-brother, then cast a magic spell on them to double their power. Loki ordered them to capture Jane Foster and they rushed to do so, Hyde knocking aside a car on the way. Cobra grabbed Foster out of the window and Thor immediately attacked as Cobra passed Foster to Hyde while slithering under a cab. Hyde took Foster with them, making Thor promise to meet them on the same corner in 24 hours. Thor soon found their remote headquarters, not expecting that they had laid traps for him, including stony spikes, tear gas, and explosions. Cobra swiftly evaded Thor as Hyde, with a gas mask, knocked the hero back, seeing Thor buried in rubble after an explosion. Hyde went to retrieve Cobra, but they found Thor missing, tending to Foster, who'd been wounded in the explosion.
(Journey into Mystery I#111) - Hyde and Cobra soon tracked Thor to Foster's hospital room and savagely attacked. Thor batted them aside, blew them off with his winds, then fled with Foster, putting her in hiding. They soon tracked down Thor and tried to use teamwork, but Cobra kept getting in Hyde's way. Frustrated, Cobra flipped Hyde over his shoulder, knocking him into Thor's fist. As Cobra fled, Hyde attacked anew, but Cobra's gas got to him and caused Hyde to briefly flee as well. Thor pursued and threw his hammer at Hyde, who evaded and tried throwing Thor into a powerful blast ray, but Thor maneuvered Hyde into it. Hyde fell unconscious, stiff as a board.
(Fantastic Four Annual I#3/Marvel Heroes and Legends#1) - Affected by Dr. Doom's emotion charger, several villains swarmed the wedding of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl.

(Daredevil I#30) - Cobra and Hyde continued their crime spree, arguing over who was more powerful and effective all the way. Much later, they saw Thor talking to Daredevil and figured they may as well destroy Daredevil as he may eventually become an opponent of theirs. Daredevil initially evaded their blows, slipping through Hyde's arms and popping up in a tree behind them; Hyde punched the tree in a fury, but Daredevil knocked Hyde into it. Hyde then convinced Cobra to follow him back to his lab, where he had a potion he could use on Daredevil. When Daredevil attacked, Cobra bound him while Hyde tossed a chemical on him that blinded the hero permanently. Though Daredevil was already blind, this potion cancelled out his radar powers. As the police had surrounded them, Cobra and Hyde fled.
(Daredevil I#31) - The police, including Lew, seized Hyde's lab. The duo traveled for another heist, arguing over who was more effective and whether they should have left behind Daredevil. Cobra slithered into a building through a pipe, let Hyde in, then watched as the safe was broken into and the criminals split the cash. As they walked through the city, they saw Daredevil walking and showing off on a high wire and assumed that he'd regained his sight and was coming after them. They fled from cops who'd opened fire, including Len, but Cobra followed Daredevil and realized he was still blind.
(Daredevil I#32) - Cobra returned Daredevil to Hyde and they drove him to their lighthouse hideout in New England, having to take a boat for part of the journey. They promised to make Daredevil suffer before they killed him. They forced him inside, still arguing with each other. Daredevil managed to turn off the generator lights, plunging the room into darkness. Hyde retrieved the antidote for Daredevil's condition so that the hero couldn't get it. Hyde then swung blindly in the dark until he struck Daredevil, who struggled to find the antidote. Hyde nearly hit the hero with a large piece of machinery, then picked Daredevil up to throw him. When Cobra Hyde, Cobra swung a weapon and accidentally hit Hyde instead. Furious, Hyde attacked Cobra briefly before they came to their senses and searched for the dropped antidote. Cobra found it, so Hyde punched him to retrieve it. The antidote went flying and Daredevil found it, regaining the use of his powers. Daredevil knocked Cobra against a wall and captured him, though Hyde escaped.

(Daredevil I#61 (fb)) - Cobra, Hyde, and Jester traveled to New Jersey and offered to rent a carnival from Lemuel Frye. Frye agreed to steer clear of the carnival for a day, but they caught him peeking in on them later. Hyde promised to pay Frye if he lured Daredevil to them.
(Daredevil I#61) - The villains laced the entire carnival with death-traps and saw Daredevil approach that night with Frye. Cobra trapped Daredevil in a parachute and Hyde tried hitting the hero, who struck back and evaded. The villainous trio soon pursued Daredevil into the house of mirrors, where he briefly evaded them. When Karen Page arrived with the police, the trio surrendered.
(Captain America I#151 (fb) - BTS) - The Assassin (Mr. Kline) captured Hyde and Scorpion and kept them in suspended animation as part of a personal plot. He used robot duplicates of the villains, who were believed to have been killed.
(Daredevil I#83 - BTS) - Daredevil battled the Mr. Hyde robot.
(Captain America I#151 (fb)) - Scorpion woke up finally, long after Kline's defeat, and broke out of his glass cage. He awakened Hyde, who started attacking him until he realized they were allies.

(Captain America I#150/151 (fb) - BTS) - Hyde and Scorpion stalked SHIELD Agent Sharon Carter, seeing her with her boyfriend Steve Rogers (#150) and have a private conversation with Nick Fury, SHIELD director.
(Captain America I#151) - Hyde and Scorpion attacked Rogers in the street, hoping to get more information on the organization. Rogers effectively toppled both villains before fleeing, leaving them determined to go after Carter. When they arrived at her apartment, they found Captain America and Falcon there. Hyde, who had to jump out of the way of a swerving truck, shook of Cap's blows then ripped up a lamp post and swung it at the evading hero. Cap hit Hyde, who was distracted by Scorpion's screams, repeatedly until Hyde took the emerging Carter hostage. Hyde knocked her out, then retreated into the sewers as the heroes watched them leave.
(Captain America I#152 (fb) - BTS) - Hyde hired Morgan, who sent Smasher Kreel and Rocky to bring Hyde a truckload of chemicals.
(Captain America I#152) - A frustrated Hyde left Scorpion to question the restrained Carter as he waited for his chemicals to arrive, not knowing Falcon had stopped them. When Cap and Falcon arrived, Hyde grabbed Cap's shield and was shocked when it didn't break. He threw the shield at Cap in frustration, then watched as Scorpion nearly defeated the hero as Falcon fled with Carter. Hyde grabbed Cap in a bear hug and began squeezing, but Cap jabbed Hyde's ribs, breaking some, and knocked Hyde out with a punch.

(Black Widow: Deadly Origin#3 (fb) - BTS) - Owl and Mr. Hyde teamed up to rob a bank in San Francisco.
(Daredevil I#142) - Zabo was released from prison, promising to go straight. He retrieved a vial of his formula, rented a quiet apartment, and turned himself into Hyde. Hyde picked Cobra up at prison as his ally was escaping from jail, and they agreed to quell their arguments during this caper. Stopping to rob jewels on their way to Rotsler's, the arguments ensued, with Cobra continually reminding Hyde of how valuable he was to the partnership and Hyde saying how he didn't need Cobra. Cobra snuck into the Jewel Emporium and let Hyde in. They easily downed a security guard, but the cops, including Lt. Bert Rose, and Daredevil attacked. Hyde grabbed the hero, threatening to tear him apart unless the police backed off. After throwing Daredevil into the police, Hyde followed Cobra into the sewers to escape, tearing up the street to fit through. Having retrieved a needed emerald, Hyde added it to his serum, which took four hours to create. It made him twice as strong and inhuman, though the transformation process was incredibly painful. Hyde and Cobra attacked Rotsler and his girlfriend Sharman, both dressed in jungle garb in their make-shift jungle paradise on the roof. Hyde caught Daredevil and threw him aside while Cobra knocked him out with a sleeping gas grenade. They staked him to the ground so that the prowling lion could attack.
(Daredevil I#143) - Hyde ordered Cobra to slither down a vent to get the book, but Cobra panicked and returned without it, infuriating Hyde, who hit Cobra in a fury.

The villains fled, but returned later and forced Rotsler to turn the valuable book of Cagliostro over to them, then returned to their Manhattan labs. They downed more security guards and stole the necessary chemicals they would need to complete the formula, still arguing about who had the superior skills. Just as Hyde was mixing them, Daredevil arrived, quickly leaving Cobra unconscious. In the ensuing battle, Hyde tried tying Daredevil up with Cobra's form, but Daredevil managed to escape and shatter the serum with his billy club. Hyde was soon defeated again.
(Daredevil I#153 (fb) - BTS) - Purple Man used his powers to take over the guards at Ryker's Island and set up a base there. He released Mr. Hyde and Cobra from their cells and ordered them to wait at the apartment of Heather Glenn, where they were to kill Daredevil.

As Hyde changed into his costume, he revealed he didn't have his five million and then attacked the frustrated Batroc, who evaded until he realized how much more powerful Hyde was. Hyde demanded that Batroc and his men join him in hijacking a Roxxon ship full of offensive weaponry. Using a submarine, Batroc and Hyde stormed the ship and attacked the men, including Pearson. They demanded a billion dollars from Benedict at Roxxon to not detonate the boat; in addition, at Batroc's suggestion, they demanded Captain America be tied on the boat as a hostage. The small ship carrying the money soon arrived with Cap on it. After inspecting the money, Hyde turned on Cap, who triggered a cloud of knock-out gas form the floor. Hyde held his breath and attacked, savagely punching Cap over and over until Batroc stopped him. They tied Cap to the front of the boat and planned to ram it into the docks.
(Captain America I#252) - Hyde grew frustrated again when he couldn't break Cap's shield, so he tossed it to the boat below. As Hyde ruminated about his past, he prepared to evacuate to the sub, blowing up New York as he escaped. Batroc shockingly kicked Hyde in the face and Hyde, furious, threw Batroc through the ship wall and pursued him. They fought briefly until Hyde nearly killed Batroc, but Cap, who'd freed himself, stopped him with a thrown shield. Cap and Batroc teamed up on Hyde, dealing repeated blows while Hyde couldn't manage to lay one. Hyde finally hit Batroc just before getting a shield to the face.

(Ghost Rider III#55 (fb) - BTS) - Zabo and new ally Morphine founded the Skin and Bones club at some point. The club catered to the "refined tastes" of those like them, who enjoyed inflicting pain and death for personal enjoyment, and patrons could do so in the club. Zabo grew famous for his "visceral signature", using a sharp blade to expose a length of bone, then scratching his name on it without allowing the victim to die.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#88) - Back in jail, Hyde broke out of his cell and moved to attack Cobra. Guards in riot gear fired tranquilizer gas at him, but they were ineffective. The warden summoned an airlift to evacuate Cobra to safety as Hyde pushed through the guards' electro-shock rifles. As Cobra prepared to board the copter, Hyde broke through to the roof and used a thrown guard tower to destroy the copter. Knocking guards' aside, Hyde grabbed Cobra, unintentionally freeing him from his body shackle. Cobra fled into the river with Hyde pursuing him.

The heroes rushed off to storm Baron Heinrich Zemo’s castle while Hyde, at Centurius’ order, captured some Nazi soldiers to replenish Man-Thing with, bantering with Troll as he did so. Soon Captain America called the Thunderbolts for help.
(Thunderbolts I#165) – The Thunderbolts and Invaders fought against the army of Human Torches, Hyde stomping on one when he could. Centurius instructed Hyde to have the team lure them Torches near the mountaintop where they could extinguish them with an avalanche. Hyde was frustrated, but agreed. When they got the Torches lined up, Hyde punched the mountain and doused them in snow.
(Thunderbolts I#166 (fb) – BTS) – When the Thunderbolts landed in east London in 1888, Hyde was thrilled and rushed off on his own. Satana followed.
(Thunderbolts I#167 (fb) – BTS) – Ancient warrior women, the Iceni, sensed the presence of Satana and possessed London citizens. They lured Hyde in to them, then trapped Satana with a curse when she refused to join them. Hyde spent the next several weeks trying to find the woman, freeing the human souls and killing the Iceni so that he could free Satana. He was confused for Jack the Ripper. He couldn’t find the Thunderbolts to enlist their aid.
(Thunderbolts I#166 (fb) – BTS) – Hyde killed Elizabeth Stride.
(Thunderbolts I#166) – In August, 1888, Hyde ripped apart another woman, Annie Chapman, with Satana watching. Weeks later, he killed Catherine Eddowes. Still later, he killed another woman as the Thunderbolts and inspectors Abberline and Williamson. Hyde tossed a head, then called out to Satana.
(Thunderbolts I#167) – The Thunderbolts attacked Hyde savagely; he managed to cut Fixer’s tech pack and then shrug off Boomerang’s exploding blade before finally tossing the woman’s body into Troll’s axe, freeing Satana who killed most of the Iceni. After depositing bodies in the swamp, they defeated the Iceni and time-traveled again.
(Thunderbolts I#169) – In 537 AD, Satana kept Mr. Hyde occupied with a sex spell until the Knights of the Round Table, Merlin, and King Arthur approached. In disguise, the Thunderbolts sued for a truce, but Merlin captured them with his magics and put them in a dungeon (Hyde’s arm was stabbed in the battle). They were imprisoned with dozens of monsters, including Grendel’s brother.
(Thunderbolts I#170) – Ghost revealed he was among them and freed the team. A massive battle between the Thunderbolts and the knights erupted and Boomerang freed the monsters from their cells. Merlin helped stabilize the tower and they returned to the future, a few years prior to their present, and were met by the original Thunderbolts.
(Thunderbolts I#172) – The original Thunderbolts stormed the tower, which was killing civilians, while the future villains entered some underground tunnels (which Hyde pounded into). The Thunderbolts attacked and a massive battle ensued, during which Hyde broke Atlas’ nose, then Atlas smashed Hyde into the floor.
(Thunderbolts I#173) – The battle continued until Satana knocked everyone out and took the future villains back to the tower with her. The Thunderbolts followed and Citizen V agreed to show them to a time machine, having figured out the truth, and they partied, planning to storm Latveria later. They were shocked when Fixer seemed to kill the past Techno.
(Thunderbolts I#174) – With the past Fixer dead, reality began to unravel. Hyde found himself unable to change back to Zabo, and Fixer revealed his body was naturally producing the transformation serum now. To attempt to fix it, they fed the bodies the tower had killed to the time engines, evaporating David Althoff, Paul Sarker, Louis Singh, Sara Carr, Michael Duffy, Daniel Dillon, Antonio Guttierez, and Vincenzo Cerilli. When Fixer sacrificed himself to live in a time loop from the past to the future present, reality was restored.
(Dark Avengers I#176) – The Thunderbolts appeared in the dinosaur age, then back to pre-creation days, passing the Watcher and some Celestials on their journey back. Man-Thing revived with them, able to speak, then they came at odds with fellow time traveler Dr. Doom.
(Dark Avengers I#177) – The Thunderbolts ended up in modern day (but still past) Latveria battling Doombots. They rushed, trying to escape into a portal, and ended up in a future where Boss Cage attacked them.
(Dark Avengers I#178) – Thunderbolts Tower was destroyed. The team found Man-Thing and battled Boss Cage.
(Dark Avengers I#179) – The Thunderbolts continued their battle with Boss Cage. A message from the past showed them a possible way home.
(Dark Avengers I#180) - Hyde mostly slept while the Thunderbolts worked to identify ways to stop this future from happening. They teamed with the mutant Outlanders against the bosses.
(Dark Avengers I#181) - During their attack on Boss Cage's headquarters, Hyde stopped Troll from killing enemies, wanting to slay them himself.
(Dark Avengers I#182) - The Thunderbolts finally made it back to the present, where they met other members of their team and helped defeat the rogue Thunderbolts Ai Apaec, Ragnarok, Toxie Doxie, and Trickshot. They defeated Sultan Magus and erased the future timeline they'd been in.
(Dark Avengers I#183) - After resolving concerns, the Thunderbolts returned to New York City, then Man-Thing, rather than sending the others back to jail, transported them to his swamp and sent them all on to the place of their fondest desires, Mr. Hyde's being mayhem.
(Superior Spider-Man Team-Up#6 (fb) - BTS) - Wrecker and Thunderball called Mr. Hyde to rejoin the Masters of Evil under Lightmaster's leadership.
(Superior Spider-Man Team-Up#6) - The Masters of Evil (Absorbing Man, Blackout (Marcus Daniels), Bulldozer, Lightmaster, Mr. Hyde, Piledriver, Thunderball, Titania, Whirlwind) battled the Superior Six and Sun Girl. During the battle, Mr. Hyde was buffeted by a giant spider robot. Their new leader, Lightmaster, stole a quantum particle engine, which Sun Girl (Lightmaster's daughter) activated, and the Masters of Evil disappeared.
(All-New Ghost Rider#1 - BTS) - Calvin Zabo escaped from jail. He sent him men to retrieve a blue serum from a vehicle driven by Robbie Reyes, who they killed, but he turned into Ghost Rider.
(All-New Ghost Rider#2) - Calvin Zabo muttered to his Mr. Hyde side. When his men, including McCallum, chased off Ghost Rider, they returned to him and tried stealing from him, so an amped up Hyde killed one as an example.
(All-New Ghost Rider#3) - Hyde ordered McCallum and his men to go after Grumpy, who had stolen some of his drugs.
(All-New Ghost Rider#4) - Zabo continued experimenting on mutating street drugs. He recruited local teens, including Guero Valdez, to help hunt for Grumpy.
(All-New Ghost Rider#5) - Grumpy stood against McCallum and his forces until Mr. Hyde easily killed him, tearing him in half. Later, Mr. Hyde attacked Ghost Rider, and when overwhelmed, he took a handful of pink pills that mutated him out of control then reverted him back to Zabo.
(All-New Ghost Rider#6) - Zabo provided Guero Valdez, Julio, and Hernando with blue pills.
(All-New Ghost Rider#7) - The three teenagers began calling themselves the Blue Hyde Brigade and began dealing the blue pills, which they called Blue Krue, as Zabo monitored them.
(All-New Ghost Rider#9) - The Blue Krue trained more men in blue to join the Blue Hyde Brigade, and Mr. Hyde prepared them to move against Yegor Ivanov to gain control of the underworld. He soon formed an alliance with Ivanov, preparing to unite against Ghost Rider.
(All-New Ghost Rider#10) - Yegor Ivanov told Mr. Hyde about Eli Morrow, a former hitman and serial killer who had been killed, coming after him. Guero Valdez reported that Ghost Rider's real identity was Robbie Reyes, so Hyde planned a trap. Ghost Rider attacked and Hyde was willing to sacrifce Ivanov (who soon escaped). The other Ghost Rider (John Blaze) helped Reyes defeat the Blue Hyde Brigade, and Valdez ended up with a broken back. Hyde was devastated.
(Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. I#6) - After being trapped in the Pleasant HIll prison, where villains had their realities rewritten, Mr. Hyde escaped and turned back into himself, but he was knocked out by Warwolf of the S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Howling Commandos.

The Assassin (Mister Kline) used a robot of Mr. Hyde against Daredevil in Daredevil I#83-84.
Mister Hyde was profiled in the original OHOTMU series, in the Deluxe Edition, and in the New Avengers: Most Wanted handbook.
In Captain America I#291
Calvin Zabo's name was seen on a list of the Guardian Life Insurance
Company. It is unknwon at which point during his criminal career he
bought this policy, but it was pretty sure during his life of crime
because he wasn't the only super villain that company dealt with (see Tumbler
or Tumbler's brother Michael, the second Tumbler).
Conspiracy#1-2 (February-March, 1998) Calvin Zabo was one of the
scientists financed by Control. Check out the comments for Mark
Ewing and Edward
Harrison to learn more.
Mr. Hyde was also in the video game Iron Man and X-O Manowar in Heavy Metal. He doesn't appear in the comic prelude, but is a mini-boss in the first mission. The mission "Nuclear Plant Seige"'s briefing says this.
"Encrypted NRC Cable indicates St. Paul Nuclear Power Plant infiltrated by terrorists. May be part of coordinated attack by Dromak aliens in high Earth orbit. Elite squadron of Armorines dispatched by Pentagon to retake plant. Your assistance requested. End msg."
"Secure reactor core against meltdown and eliminate Melter. "Melter" believed to be barricaded in core destroying vital cooling systems under direction of Dromak Alien Alliance. Full-scale meltdown of core imminent!"
"Vaporize nuclear fuel canisters to prevent use by terrorists. Spider Aliens allied with Dromaks may be after weapons grade plutonium canisters to power weapons systems."
The only mention of Mr. Hyde before the fight against him was a short profile of him and his abilities, and yet doesn't mention why he's there. All Mr. Hyde did was wait in a room for Iron Man or X-O Manowar. He fights the hero only to be defeated. That's pretty much it.

Mr. Hyde is not meant to be confused with has no known connections to
Max and Sam
(Daredevil I#83) - Max and Sam picked up the supposedly deceased form of the Scorpion (MacDonald Gargan) and were discussing it when Mr. Hyde attacked, seemingly killing all on board the ambulance and taking the Scorpion's body.
