Fear pheromone administered primarily by gas pellets, occasionally by syringe
Alan Fagan was born in Madison, Wisconsin. He was the nephew of the third Mister Fear, Larry Cranston. When Larry seemingly died, Alan came into possession of the fear gas and other equipment. Unlike the other Fears, Fagan's primary adversary was Spider-Man, not Daredevil.
Fagan attempted to use his fear-gas in blackmail schemes which were stymied by Spider-Man, once with the aid of Hawkeye. Fagan was brutally attacked in prison, much of the skin carved from his face by men in the employ of his daughter, who used the skin to draw out fear-gas residue she used to turn herself into the villainess Shock.
Fagan recovered from these injuries and received improved weaponry from the interim ruler of Latveria, Lucia Von Bardas. The weaponry, including a suit of body armor resembling a metallic version of the traditional Mr. Fear costume, was destroyed at the climax of the Secret War miniseries.
Fagan was one of the many criminals to escape from the Raft prison facility, becoming a thrall of the villain Crossfire. During his efforts in service to Cross, Fagan was again defeated by Spider-Man.
As opposed to Cranston, Fagan has been hired by the Hood to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act.
