Chandu the Alchemist is a 12th century alchemist employed by Prince John of England against Richard the Lion-Heart. He was an enemy of his contemporary Black Knight, Eobar Garrington, as well as the time-traveling Dane Whitman.
Chandu reappeared years later with the Maha Yogi, Mongu and Le Sabre to infiltrate the Avengers Mansion to seek out the Ebony Blade. Chandu used his magical abilities to alter the density of the Vision's body into a liquid, sludge form. Chandu used the body of the Vision to created solid bonds to restrain Hercules.

Chandu was taken down by a barrage of hits from the multiples of Vision.
