Powers/Abilities: While the origins of his power are unrevealed, Frost Pharaoh appears to be a normal criminal obsessed with both frost and, um, pharaohs. Wearing an Egyptian costume, he wields an ankh-tipped staff that can fire blasts of cold, capable of freezing the air and creating ice structures.
The Frost Pharaoh, after reading the Tome of Hoary Horrors, accessed the book’s magic to generate a giant ice-god form around himself, which he piloted from a cavity in the center. In this form, he was several stories tall and was super strong; he called himself Salqu-Neter, the Ice God, but his form was swiftly disrupted.
History: (Miles Morales: Spider-Man I#4) - At the Brooklyn Museum, the Frost Pharaoh, wielding a scepter that fired icy blasts, attacked civilians, seeking to find "the Stone of the Gods," which was in one of the exhibits there. He fired a blast when Spider-Man attacked but the hero easily defeated Frost Pharaoh with one punch.
(Miles Morales: Spider-Man I#13) - Seeking to claim a bounty on the Prowler (Aaron Davis), Frost Pharaoh attacked him in Red Hook but Spider-Man was with him. Frost Pharaoh was defeated before he could fire a single blast.
(Amazing Spider-Man V#38) - Frost Pharaoh went to gamble at the Palace casino and, under unrevealed circumstances, ended up shrunken down to the size of a few inches and placed on the roulette wheel, where he sought to outrun the ball.
(Miles Morales: Spider-Man I#22 (fb) - BTS) - Frost Pharaoh read the Tome of Hoary Horrors and accessed its magic to generate a giant ice body several stories tall, which he then piloted from a cavity in the center.
(Miles Morales: Spider-Man I#22) - Salqu-Neter went after the Stone of the Gods in the museum, but he was attacked by Spider-Man and Starling. Spider-Man blasted the giant apart with a venom blast, then they left Frost Pharaoh webbed up for the authorities.
Comments: Created by Saladin Ahmed and Javier Garron.
Very little is known about Frost Pharaoh. He appears to only use a cold-generating ankh staff, which could be technological or magical in origin (it is assumed to be technology for the purpose of this profile until more is revealed).
