Calvin Zabo was a really unscrupulous medical researcher who discovered himself in an embittered rivalry with Donald Blake, a doctor who was secretly the host of Thor throughout Thor’s exile to Earth. Zabo ultimately created a formulation to show him right into a Hulk-like monster, and known as himself Mister Hyde after his favourite e book, Unusual Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The formulation permits Zabo to vary between himself and Hyde at will. Mister Hyde’s skills are largely bodily, as he has unimaginable energy, sturdiness, and therapeutic. Mister Hyde was first created in 1963’s Journey Into Thriller #99 by Stan Lee and Don Heck.
