Did you really think you could stop me?
―Mysterio[src]

Quentin Beck was a former employee at Oscorp Industries who became embittered as Max Dillon disregarded his entire life's work, resulting in Beck losing his job. Seeking his retribution, Beck had joined forces with other former Sinister Six employees to create a new superhero named Mysterio, using their Combat Drones and his own hologram technology to create an illusion of his own superpowers, as well as multiple attacks from the fictional Elementals. Knowing that he needed to create world threatening illusions to sell his lies, Mysterio had then gained the trust of Jill Stacy in order to get closer to Spider-Man, as he knew that Stark had gifted Spider-Man with access to the technology he needed. However, as Spider-Man discovered Mysterio's deception, he defeated Beck in New York, as Beck's overconfidence resulted with his own demise. However, in the moments before his demise, Beck had managed to record his messages for J. Jonah Jameson, exposing Spider-Man's true identity while also framing him for all the Elemental attacks.

In 2014, Peter plans to meet up with Gwen's family to eat, but he sees Gwen's father once again and feels unable to enter the restaurant. Gwen sees Peter and excuses herself from the table. Outside, Peter tells Gwen that he keeps seeing her father and it is bothering him, since he promised Capt. Stacy to keep her out of his life to protect her. She tells Peter that she likes Spider-Man, but she fell in love with Peter Parker. During the presentation, Beck watched from behind, furious at Gwen for giving his work laughable name and envious over being discredited of his work.

Mysterio traps Spider-Man in an illusion

I created Mysterio to give the world someone to believe in. I control the truth... Mysterio is the truth! If you were good enough, turns out you're the villain, Peter...
―Mysterio to Spider-Man[src]

Six months later, When Spider-Man arrived in the Berlin, Beck projected Fury went over to his headquarters by setting up a building that is yet another illusion. After shooting Fury with one of his Stark Industries Combat Drones, Beck revealed himself, talking about how Spider-Man should've walked away and now he has to kill him. Beck trapped Parker in an elaborate series of illusions, such as him being in a high school hallway and tricked him into attacking Beck as well.

Mysterio confronted Spider-Man and used his projection to drop her into the ground, both tricking Spider-Man and Mysterio into falling into the ground. As Spider-Man was out for the open, Mysterio punched him away from the building, letting him land on the hood of a truck. Mysterio attacked Spider-Man with his energy blasts only to trick him into hurting himself.

Mysterio exposes Spider-Man's identity

I managed to send the Elemental back into the dimensional rift but I don't think I'm gonna make it off this bridge alive. Spider-Man attacked me for some reason. He has an army of weaponized drones, Stark technology. Spider-Man's name is Peter Parker!
―Mysterio[src]

In 2017, Despite his great defeat, prior to his death during the Battle of New York, Mysterio took advantage of his being subdued from Spider-Man in order to release heavily altered filmed footage of the New York battle. Beck's crew used the footage to implicate Spider-Man as the ringleader of the Elemental attacks. Upon Parker's return to New York City, the footage was already sent to various news outlets in the city, including NY1 and The Daily Bugle, framing Spider-Man as a menace, and exposing Parker's alter-ego as Spider-Man to the world.[1]
