Doc Reeves is not actually a Doctor. Doc was a nickname he picked up as a child. Malcolm Reeves was an inventor and mechanical genius who created a unique wetsuit for undersea exploration that became his uniform on his adventures with the Mighty Crusaders.


Malcolm Reeves was a personal friend of the Web. He hung out with the Mighty Crusaders at their headquarters and worked on their computer systems. In the field, Doc Reeves joined the Crusaders on several adventures. While fighting the Brain Emperor, the Crusaders fell under his mind control. When Malcolm was able to break free, he was killed by Sting. The Comet cremated the body of Doc Reeves with his dissolvo-vision.

Powers & Weapons:

The medallion under his advanced wet suit kept him from being controlled by the psychic powers of opponents. His suit, designed for underwater adventure, was fully functional on land as well.
