History

The Scorpion was an apparently immortal adventurer who had adopted various identities through the centuries. In the early 20th century he was known as Moro Frost, an adventurer available for hire to solve mysteries and right wrongs, aided by his assistant Ruby. Among the cases he dealt with were a spate of plane crashes which plagued Empire State Airways, which turned out to be caused by shipping magnate Garro Kalaydjian, using a sonic device to kill the pilots; and the disappearance of financier Jules Reinhardt, who turned out to have been murdered using voodoo.

Later re-vamped to Dominic Fortune at Marvel
