Intro: ADVENTURES OF THE FLY #1, August 1959
Simon SPry is a dastardly criminal scientist. His life work has gone into putting an end to his nemeses, the Fly and Fly-Girl! He was the first enemy to take on the combined might of the Fly, the Shield, the Comet, Black Hood, and Fly-Girl, who would later become the Mighty Crusaders. In fact, it was Spider Spry himself who created the idea of the Mighty Crusaders, in a plot to draw them all together and pit them against each other!
POWERS & WEAPONS:
Spider Spry can build giant high-tech weapons and machines, capable of immense power. In addition to this, Spry can climb extreme heights with the aid of his silken spider cords, thus giving him the name “Spider Spry.” Also at his disposal are numerous other gadgets that he can call upon at will to combat the forces of good. And as if that weren’t enough, Spray has a world-wide system of corrupt operatives tracking the movements of precious metals and technology, which he uses in his schemes.
