Ox was known for being the strongman of the team, but also the most clumsy. He eventually fought against more superheroes of the Marvel Universe.


    There are two different Ox'es. The first and current Ox was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man Vol.1 issue 10 (1964). He seemingly died and was soon replaced by his twin brother in the pages of The Spectacular SpiderMan Vol.1 issue 19 (1978). It was however later revealed that the original Ox lived and he has since retaken the mantle of the Ox.
