An extraordinarily gifted technician at one of Stark Industries’ many regional laboratories, Mark Scarlotti felt unappreciated and underpaid. Working for the Maggia and Justin Hammer, Scarlotti created powerful superweapons and evolved his own villainous identity. He wishes he could be Tony Stark, but if that can’t happen, he’ll settle for destroying the original.
Whiplash is as deadly as he is a genius. He uses electric whips to break through an opponents armor. He’s also a capable strategist and can counter many attacks.
Imprisoned in The Vault by Iron Man, Scarlotti recovered his equipment and escaped during the Breakout event. He was soon recruited by The Crimson Cowl to join her Masters of Evil.
