Seymour O'Reilly[edit]

Seymour O'Reilly is a Marvel Comics character who first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15.

He was a wisecracking, bully-wannabe who joined athlete Flash Thompson to pick on unpopular kids such as Peter Parker. When Spider-Man appeared throughout the years, Seymour was still a sort of harasser to Peter as time goes by; for instance, he began playing some pranks on Peter such as putting a "kick-me" sign on his back and trying to give him a "wedgie". He makes a final appearance in the Marvel Knights Spider-Man series in issue #7 where he once again troubles Peter and he meets his demise when he is killed by Angelo Fortunato, the son of crime boss Don Fortunato who became the new Venom. Peter and his wife Mary Jane Watson were testified regarding O'Reilly's death to the police who arrive at Peter's high school reunion due to O'Reilly's demise.

Amberson lashed out at and verbally abused Norman, and even hit his wife when she came to their young son's defense. Amberson also locked Norman in an abandoned family mansion to force his son to "face the darkness" and made him stay there throughout the night during an intense rain storm which traumatized Norman from the apparent cackling of a green goblin-like creature.

Overrider[edit]

For the Spider-Man villain formerly known as Override, see Gregory Herd.

Overrider (Richard Rennselaer) is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. His first appearance was in Captain America Annual #8.

Richard Rennselaer is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whose son developed nuclear psychosis, a total withdrawal from reality due to a fear that the world will end at any moment due to nuclear destruction.[volume & issue needed]

Desperate to help his son, Rennselaer (secretly a mutant with the power to control machinery) took on the codename of "Overrider" and stole the experimental TESS-One robot - part of a 1939 project dubbed Total Elimination Of Super-Soldiers which was intended to be a failsafe against the Super Soldier program. Overrider had the TESS-One robot coated with adamantium at the Adametco Metallurgy company, and it was there he first encountered Captain America and Wolverine, each who had been following different leads. Overrider escaped with TESS-One, and later mounted an assault on a nuclear command facility in the hope of launching America's entire stockpile of nuclear missiles and burying them in the ocean floor, not caring that Moscow may interpret the launch as an attack on the Soviet Union. Captain America and Wolverine teamed up to defeat TESS-One, and then encountered Overrider as he was about to launch the missiles. Captain America knocked Overrider off his flying sled with his shield, and Wolverine almost impaled him on his claws as he fell, choosing instead at the last second to let Overrider fall to the floor. Overrider was quickly given medical attention and then taken into custody.[volume & issue needed] Overrider was depowered thanks to the effects of M-Day.[volume & issue needed]
