Rushing immediately to Dr. Stillwell’s lab, Jameson told the ambitious scientist that he would pay $10, 000 if he could perform his experiment on a human, in this case Mac Gargan. At first reluctant, Dr. Stillwell couldn’t say no to such a donation and proceeded with the experiment. He decided to give Gargan the powers of a scorpion but wasn’t sure of the side-effects that this would have on his brain. Nevertheless, Gargan drank the serum and proceeded with the rest of the experiment. Dr. Stillwell also created a scorpion suit equipped with a powerful electro-mechanical tail. Gargan’s transformation was now complete.However shortly after the experiment, Dr. Stillwell continued to do further tests and discovered that the experiment was not such a success. As Gargan increased in strength, he would eventually lose his sanity. Dr. Stillwell fashioned a serum that would cure his experimental subject of his powers and proceeded to find Gargan, who was busy battling Spider-Man. Arriving on the scene, Dr. Stillwell told Gargan of the side-effects of the experiment and told him about the cure. However, Gargan didn’t want to lose his power and climbed up the side of a building to get away. Dr. Stillwell proceeded to follow him but had lost his grip. As he fell, Dr. Stillwell threw the serum at Gargan in a vain hope to cure him. He missed and fell to his death.
