Look, we just know this guy is destined to become a Marvel villain, right?
But just look at the guy!
I can see the whole story...he's a success, but a treacherous partner decides to steal ther income, and leaves him for dead. But he survives, the experience--near death? Exposure to his "process" for 48 hours as he lays beneath rubble inhaling hard water vapors?--reaches undreamt levels of power, and now a has a "super" voice which can command others, and cause things to happen. And so he goes on a revenge quest, initially stopped by Spider-Man and Ghost Rider in an issue of Marvel Team-Up, but eventually just becoming another super-villain who menaces every Marvel hero...until Galactus comes looking for a new herald...
See, this is why I'm not allowed to write comic books. Ever.
