Dryrot
Real Name: Paul Contoni
Search for 'Dryrot' on Amazon


Powers:
Composed of a flakey substances that was restiant to phsyical attacks. He could rearrange the shape of his body. He could also increase his size to 9 feet. He also had enhanced human strength.

Bio:
Dryrot was the original recipient of Dr. Monica Staphos's Synthetic Skin Derivative (SSD), which had been created using an Isotope Genome Accelerator similar to the one that gave Peter Parker his spider-powers.

Two years later, when an updated formula of the SSD (combined with Peter Parker's irradiated blood) accidentally created Tendril, G.A.R.I.D. decided to find Dryrot for assistance and to find out how the SSD had changed between Dryrot's case and Tendril's. Calvin Falconer and Peter Parker approached him first to no avail. Peter returned later as Spider-Man and found Contoni battling a bear in the woods. Dryrot was convinced to return to G.A.R.I.D. to be examined. G.A.R.I.D. found a way to revert Dryrot to normal, but they needed to recalibrate the Isotope Genome Accelerator and recapture Tendril for the process to work. Dryrot helped Spider-Man to bring Tendril in, using a genome dampener attuned to Verys's genetic configuration. It had the side effect of making Dryrot half human again. Dryrot and Tendril where taken back to G.A.R.I.D. where Dr. Schwinner and Peter Parker attempted to rid them of their powers and the NF by using the Isotope Genome Accelerator. Tendril struggled and damaged some of the equipment, but Peter Parker leapt in to repair the damage. While Tendril lost his life trying to fight the process, Dryrot reverted to Paul Contoni.
