Origin tale of Mysterio
The origin tale of Mysterio, one of Spider-oldest Man’s and most popular adversaries, is rewritten in A Spider-Man Story Far from Home. Quentin Beck is no longer a failing actor, but a dissatisfied former employee of Stark Industries who was personally slighted by Tony, symbolizing the growing disillusionment of ordinary people with superheroes’ ascendancy. As demonstrated by the (re)appearance of William Ginter Riva, his followers are lex-Starks as well. He initially appeared in 2008 Iron Man as a Stark scientist being chastised by Obadiah Stane for failing to reproduce Tony’s Armor technology. He was played by Peter Billingsley.
