First Appearance: (Unidentified scientist) Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#97 (December, 1984; (as Spot; real name revealed) Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#98 (January, 1985)

Powers/Abilities: Jonathan Ohnn built a machine that exposed him to "Spotworld", a dimension of spot-like portals that allow access to Earth; when the machine overloaded, Ohnn became a living being of half-light, half-dark teleportation energy, appearing as an all-white human figure covered in dozens of the portal spots. Calling himself the Spot, Ohnn realized he could pull the spots off his body and affix them in place in mid-air or on any surface, then use them to teleport anywhere through the "Spot Dimension"; Spot could then later put the spots back on himself again. Able to shrink or grow the spots in size, Ohnn discovered early on that he can combine the spots into one giant spot and place it on his chest to restore him to normal size. At times, Spot appears to be this mass of living spots, and at others he appears as a mortal man wearing a white-and-black spotted costume that he can remove at will. Ohnn is an expert at using these spots creatively, placing them all around in the air and using them to drive his hands and feet through, delivering dozens of punches and kicks from every angle against his foes. At times, Spot seems incapable of being hit, as fists, objects, or bullets merely pass through his spots, but the right blow can leave him unconscious. Spot was, for a time, used to power a machine that allowed Coyote, a man mutated to possess similar powers, greater access to the spot powers; upon escaping from that machine, overloaded, Spot appeared as a monstrous mass of legs and arms emerging through the spots on his body until he reverted to normal. Spot is vulnerable to the Darklight ring of the Mandarin, which trapped him in the Spotworld dimension; he is also vulnerable to psychic attack. While trapped in Spotworld, Spot found himself able to project images of himself to Earth until he was able to escape. Spot has been killed and returned to life, possibly more than once (see comments); any healing or resurrection powers have not been shown.

Before becoming the Spot, Dr. Johathan Ohnn was a brilliant scientist with some expertise in radiation and dimensional travel. It appears that the transformation into Spot has reduced his intelligence, and Spot can at times seem to be quite mad.

Height: 5'10"
Weight: 170 lbs.
Eyes: (As Ohnn) Blue; (as Spot) white
Hair: Black; turned light brown from extradimensional energies

History:
(Symbiote Spider-Man#1 (fb) - BTS) - Johnny Ohnn was roommates with Quentin Beck at M.I.T. After graduating, Ohnn took a job as a research scientist working for Wilson Fisk.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#589 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Johnathan fathered a son, Wyatt Ohnn, with his wife.

(Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#97) - Dr. Ohnn was working on cleaning up the lab after a massive battle between Spider-Man, Cloak, Dagger, and Silvermane. Ohnn discovered strange radiation readings taken from Cloak that reflected the energies from the Darkforce Dimension, and he began to wonder if he could use that energy on himself.

(Symbiote Spider-Man#1 (fb) ) - Ohnn had lunch with Beck and he teased him about his sad career as Mysterio. Beck invited Ohnn to join him in robbing a bank, but Ohnn turned him down.

(Symbiote Spider-Man#2) - Mysterio found Ohnn at Kingpin's headquarters, claiming he had seen an item of incredible power: Spider-Man's symbiote suit.

(Symbiote Spider-Man#3) - After Kingpin yelled at Ohnn to get back to work, Ohnn plotted with Mysterio on ways to manipulate Black Cat into getting Spidey's suit for them.

(Symbiote Spider-Man#4) - Mysterio brought back a sample of the symbiotic suit and Ohnn contained it in "unbreakable glass", but the symbiote soon broke out. Kingpin called Ohnn, demanding to know more of his research, just as Spider-Man attacked, revealing to Kingpin that Mysterio was there. After Ohnn assured Kingpin that he didn't know how Mysterio got there, Kingpin questioned Mysterio. The symbiote bonded with Mysterio's costume, allowing Mysterio to escape. Kingpin struck Ohnn, demanding that Ohnn find out what happened.

(Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#98 (fb) - BTS) - Ohnn worked on replicating the energies over the following weeks and made great strides.

(Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#98) - Ohnn reported in to Kingpin, but he only wanted to hear about super powers or experiments with Dagger's powers. That night, Ohnn worked alone on manipulating Cloak's energies into a massive black hole. He stepped into the hole, worried that the experiment would never yield another result, but soon Ohnn was freezing and screaming. Ohnn found himself in a dimension of half-light and half-dark, surrounded by black circles. Passing through one back to Earth, Ohnn discovered he was covered in white with black spots all over him, and that when he put his hand through a hole on his costume, it emerged away from him, rather like teleportation. Calling himself the Spot, Ohnn wondered if he could prove himself against Daredevil or Micah Synn, but he decided to fight Spider-Man instead.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#589 (fb) - BTS) - Spot's wife divorced him at some point, and he didn't see Wyatt for years.

(Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#99) - Spot began experimenting with his powers, and he realized he could remove the holes from his costume and affix them to surfaces, then pass body parts through them, breaking the laws of physics and moving through space with ease. Hearing that Spider-Man and the Black Cat were drawing near, Spot was eager to test his new powers, and he attacked them on the roof, making Black Cat disappear. When Spider-Man began hysterically laughing at the Spot's nickname, Spot began throwing his spots into the air and then punching the hero from far away, and Spider-Man found himself unable to land a blow. Spider-Man followed Spot into the "dimension of spots", but merely crashed into a brick wall on the other side. Spot departed as Black Cat returned, though he warned the heroes not to mess with the Kingpin again.

(Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man II#100) - Back at the lab, Spot was shocked when Kingpin pounded on the door. Not ready to reveal himself, he used all of his effort to return himself to human form, keeping the spots barely contained, as he told the Kingpin he hadn't made any progress yet. After making sure the Kingpin hadn't seen any video footage of him, Spot made plans to go after Spider-Man again, still eager to prove himself. Leaving spots in strategic locations to cover his own escape, Spot then attacked Spider-Man in mid-air, manipulating the size of his spots to fight the hero, growing bolder in the use of his powers. Spot continued throwing holes at Spider-Man and hitting the hero, but that left nearly all of the holes off his costume, leaving Spot mostly white, which allowed Spider-Man to hit him. Spot retreated through the dimensional portal, rethinking his choice to be a super-villain. Spot returned to gather his holes, but he fled again when Black Cat saw him.

(Marvel Year-in-Review 1992) - The Spot began dating Ms. Modok and frequenting the Springdale, Connecticut Bar with No Name.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#245) - Grizzly invited Spot to a meeting, and Spot showed up through a hole, making Gibbon faint. Spot saw Kangaroo there as well.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#246) - Calling themselves the Spider-Man Revenge Squad, the four villains used Spot's powers to break into a bank vault and rob it, but inside they got into a fight and the group separated as they ran from the cops. They reconvened in the sewer, where Spider-Man attacked, calling them the All-Losers Squad, or the Legion of Losers, but the villains captured Spidey. Back at Grizzly's apartment, Spidey was restrained with spots and Spot argued they should place him in an elaborate death trap, but the villains started fighting again, with Grizzly and Gibbon turning on Spot and Kangaroo. Grizzly and Gibbon managed to grab each of Spot's four limbs, through portals, and they pulled hard, knocking him out, as well as Kangaroo. Spidey took Spot and Kangaroo to jail.

(Fantastic Four III#38) - The Gideon Trust kept Spot and Nega Man strapped into a device, where they screamed to be released.

(Fantastic Four III#44) - Spot remained a captive at the Gideon Trust.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#16 (fb) - BTS) - Spot was placed in a prison where his powers were blocked. Spot began tutoring the Kangaroo (Brian Gibbs), teaching him how to read. When he tried for parole, he was denied.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#17 (fb) - BTS) - Spot renewed his efforts at rehabilitation, helping several criminals obtain their GEDs.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#16) - Tombstone became Spot's cellmate. Later, Tombstone ordered Spot to let him into the library so he could kill Kangaroo, but Spot refused, even when Tombstone grew violent with him, and Spot threatened suicide if he was denied parole again. Tombstone forced Spot anyway.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#17 (fb) - BTS) - Following Tombstone's orders, Spot informed the guards about Tombstone's plans.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#16) - Tombstone and his gang attacked Kangaroo after Spot left the door open, but the guards stopped the attack.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#17) - Spot appeared before the parole board claiming he'd been rehabilitated and he'd found his true calling as a hero and an educator. They granted him parole.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#17 (fb) - BTS) - After Tombstone escaped, Spot transported him to Switzerland for a heart operation.

(Spider-Man's Tangled Web#17) - Seven weeks later Spot joined with Tombstone in the city and asked him for help, but Tombstone broke Spot's neck instead. (see comments)

(Wolverine III#26 (fb) - BTS) - Spot was resurrected by the Hand and turned into their agent.

Spot arrived and saw Armadillo, Chameleon (secretly the Ultra-Adaptoid), Living Laser, Mentallo, Nightshade, Puma, and Rocket Racer there. When Spot tried to steal the money, a battle broke out and he traded blows with Rocket Racer before M.O.D.O.K. shut Spot's brain down, making him docile.

(Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11#2 (fb) - BTS) - M.O.D.O.K. put his team through a training regimen, needing all of their skills to steal the energy source known as the Hypernova from the Infinicide, an extradimensional fortress from the future, where they could obtain an infinite power source.

(Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11#3 (fb) - BTS) - Spot privately reached out to the son of the Mandarin, Temujin, and asked for fifteen million dollars were he to steal the device.

(Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11#2) - The team failed colossally in their first trial run, with Spot rushing ahead of the others only to end up electrocuted. The others found Spot baffling and annoying. Later, though Mentallo didn't show up, MODOK took the team aboard the actual Infinicide.

(Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11#3) - Aboard the Infinicide, the team was put in deadly danger, and Spot stole the device, leaving the others for dead. He delivered it to the Mandarin, who paid Spot his money but then used his Darklight ring to trap Spot in the "Spot Dimension".

(Amazing Spider-Man I#589 (fb) - BTS) - Using all of his focus, Spot focused on his son, Wyatt, back on Earth, only to learn that Wyatt had been shot and nearly killed by a stray bullet. Spot began devoting all of his energy to getting revenge on the man responsible for Wyatt's current state, Dmitri Ivankov.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#589) - Dmitri Ivankov received a black spot in a letter in the mail. Later, Ivankov was buying weapons on a boat when Spot attacked, killing his men, including Fyodor, Vasily, and Ignati. Spider-Man intervened, fighting Spot, who remained silent, and Spot tried killing Dmitri by teleporting him into the skies over Seattle, though Spider-Man managed to save him. Spot gave up the fight and instead gave Spidey a copy of Treasure Island to give to Wyatt.

(Dark Reign: Mister Negative#3 (fb) - BTS) - Spot secretly infiltrated Hood's army while working for Mister Negative.

(Dark Reign: Mister Negative#1) - Working for the Hood, Spot was attacked alongside White Rabbit and Speed Demon by White Dragon, who had been corrupted by Mr. Negative. Spot, remaining silent, accompanied Lightmaster in attacking H.A.M.M.E.R. agents in Chinatown.

(Daredevil III#24 (fb) - BTS) - Spot was kidnapped from custody.

(Daredevil III#21 (fb) - BTS) - Scientists re-built the machine that originally gave Spot his powers and strapped him into the machine as a power source.

The machine drained Spot's power, allowing Coyote over time greater control over his teleportation abilities.

(Spider-Man I#238) - Iron Spider put together the plan for stealing the Helicarrier, though he avoided questions about the reason for the theft. Bombshell brought her daughter, also called Bombshell, to help with the heist. After the Red Hulk left, Spot provided access to the building, then they stole the Helicarrier. Outside, Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and the Red Hulk attacked, but the villains escaped, with Spot wondering who wanted to buy the Helicarrier.

(Spider-Man I#239) - The Sinister Six hung out on the Helicarrier until Iron Spider beat up Hobgoblin for betrayal and kicked him off the team, leaving Spot to wonder who might be next. They went to Latveria to sell the Helicarrier to Lucia von Bardas, then the Champions arrived to stop them. Spot threw punches at Viv Vision in the battle, then Lucia escalated the fight.

(Spider-Man I#240 (fb) ) - The Sinister Six were defeated.

(Infinity Wars#1 (fb) - BTS) - Turk Barrett, in possession of the Mind Stone, recruited Tombstone, Typhoid Mary, Sandman, Spot, and Bullseye to guard him during a meeting with other Gem holders.

(Infinity Wars#1) - The criminals flanked Turk in a meeting with several heroes (who possessed the other gems) to discuss how to handle them. Doctor Strange, Adam Warlock, Captain Marvel, Iron Lad, Star-Lord, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon attended, with Black Widow staying in the shadows. Using the stones, they realized that Thanos had been murdered, and mistrust soon developed. With Thor and Iron Man joining the heroes, a fight broke out, and Spot sparred with Captain Marvel. Then Requiem arrived, showing them the head of Thanos; she revealed herself as Gamora and killed Star-Lord to obtain his gem.

(Infinity Wars#2) - The timeline was altered and Star-Lord was saved. When Turk went missing, Spot attacked Star-Lord, but Rocket Raccoon fired a gun into Spot, sending the bullets cascading out of Spot's spots across the battlefield. Soon, the villains got Turk back, then fled.

Comments: Created by Al Milgrom (writer), Herb Trimpe (penciler) and Jim Mooney (inker).

There are so many villains with terrible puns for names, but this character might just win the contest for worst pun of all time. Johnathan Ohnn, the Spot, is a play on the old phrase Johnny-On-the-Spot, which means a person who is always available or ready.

After Tombstone broke Spot's neck, Spot didn't show up again until the issue where the Hand resurrected him. Spot's Handbook entry mentions that Spot survived being killed by Tombstone, only to later be killed and resurrected by the Hand; it seems more likely that he just remained dead after Tombstone's attack and then was later resurrected by the Hand.

Thanks to Markus Raymond for adding Marvel Year-in-Review 1992, Amazing Spider-Man III#18 and the cameo in Daredevil III#24.
