Tony Stark was the arrogant son of wealthy, weapon manufacturer Howard Stark. Tony cared only about himself, but he would have a change of heart after he was kidnapped by terrorists and gravely injured. Pressured to create a weapon of mass destruction, Stark instead created a suit of armor powerful enough for him to escape. Tony uses his vast resources and intellect to make the world a better place as the invincible Iron Man. Stark's super hero identity led him to become a founding member of the Avengers.

After losing his job with Ace Signs, Gordon Thomas, a veteran soldier suffering from mental imbalance, embarked on city-wide vandalism as Typeface, rebelling against the "purveyors of poisonous rhetoric" he perceived as responsible for society's ills. His Time Square bombing spree was interrupted by Spider-Man, himself the victim of various weakening experiences, and although the irrational Typeface saw no crime in his activities, he rose to Spider-Man's challenge and left the weakened hero unconscious. During a later encounter with Spider-Man, himself pursued by a Spider-Hybrid created by extraterrestrials, Typeface helped the hero vanquish the creature. Following this encounter, Typeface, now affecting a bizarre speech pattern laced with rhymes and puns, became a vigilante.
The Venom symbiote bonded with Spider-Man during his adventure in the first "Secret Wars" on the Beyonder's makeshift planet called Battleworld. Initially, he thought the symbiote was just a costume.

Simon Williams was made into a being of pure ionic energy by Baron Zemo and became the impossibly, powerful Wonder Man.
