Used Projectors, Gas Gloves, Invisi-Mask and Image Inducers, plus all the tricks of the original Mysterio.
Danny Berkhart was paid by J.J.J. to make Spidey think he was the ghost of the first Mysterio, who was faking his death at the time. After Berkhart was jailed, Jameson abandoned him to his luck. Berkhart resented that ever since.
After Norman Osborn's return, a very enigmatic third Jack appeared. He called himself Mad Jack. He had a grudge with J.J.J. He saved Spider-Man's life after having him defeated. He had a cat, Maguire, that was very well- taught, and obeyed every command. He beat Jameson to a pulp, and blackmailed him (threatening his wife) into selling the Bugle to Osborn, rejecting the million dollars payment and saying he did it for pleasure.
As it would later be revealed, that Mad Jack was actually Daniel Berkhart, Mysterio 02, working with tech support by Maguire Beck (cousin to the original Mysterio), both tutored by Quentin Beck in his illusionary arts, and both using the Mad Jack costume in turns, Mysterio's illusions as well as Jack's trademark glider. Maguire was in costume seldomly, as the fourth Jack O'Lantern, prefering to stay behind doing the tech support. Sometimes they would send an android (with Berkhart's face) in costume, for the riskiest assignments. During their exits, Maguire and Berkhart always shared radio contact.
