Facade only appeared a few times but has made a great impact on Spider-Man and his friends. A doctor named Thomas Haney built an armor suit, hoping to use it for good intensions. The armor was however stolen by somebody whom, to this day, remains unrevealled. The person whom stole the armor killed Dr. Haney in the proces.
Facade was created (the armor at least) by Terry Kavanagh and Alex Saviuk and first appeared in Web of Spider-Man issue 113 (1994). To this day, it is unknown who the character inside the armor was, because the story-line was left unfinished with the start of the Clone-Saga.
Major Story Arcs
Start of a Criminal Career
After getting the armor, Facade was planning his first mayor criminal acts when Daily Bugle photographer Lance Bannon somehow saw the opritunity to photograph the villain with his mask off. Because it was very dark, he could not see the face of the person wearing it, but he knew the awnsers where on his photos. He managed to get away from the villain at first, and developed the photos at the Daily Bugle building. There he found out about the true identity of Facade, becoming the only living person to know his true identity. It was however during this time that Facade stormed into the development room and killed Lance Bannon. This was before Lance could have revealed the identity to the authorities or anyone else. To this very day, it is unknown whom the wearer of the suit was. The suspects were: J. Jonah Jameson, Mike Wilson, Cole Cooper, Victor the Butler, Archer Bryce, and John Jameson. F.A.C.A.D.E. had not been seen in comics since (except for a little cameo).
Facade's ID was "un-revealed" in the Dark Reign Files one-shot. The page depicted a pile of documents in witch the person whom wrote it said that he had found out the true identity of the masked murderer. The only problem was that the part of the document revealing the true identity was torn off!
Many months later, Facade was seen again when he attacked Spider-Man. Spider-Man however was on a race against the clock since he had 12 hours to stop inpending doom from happening to New York City. Facade was defeated quickly by Spider-Man and was even ready to tell him his true identity. Spider-Man however told his opponent there was no time and moved away from him before he could reveal his identity.
