(Spidey Super Stories#49/4 (fb) - BTS) - Mastermind planned a bank robbery and considered his plan to be perfect.

(Spidey Super Stories#49/4) - Mastermind coerced a bank teller into passing him two large bags of money. Coincidentally, Fargo North, trying to decode a clue he had discovered, thought it had to do with a bank job and looked inside the same bank. Recognizing the nefarious Mastermind and detecting a robbery,  North confronted him. Mastermind tried to push past, but Spider-Man, who had been trailing North, webbed the crook up. Confounded that his plan did not work, Mastermind was passed to the nearby police for arrest.

This appears to be the Earth-57780 counterpart to the Earth-616 mutant, Jason Wyngarde. Physical stats are taken from the Earth-616 version, as they look very much alike.
