Edward McDonough was just an engineering student when he was given the Hornet flight armor Spider-Man wore when he was framed for murder. Edward's skill as an engineer and a mechanic allowed him to alter the armor to allow it to be worn by a normal human (as previously it was top heavy to be worn by a person without superhuman strength). He also added new weaponry and altered one of the gauntlets to compensate for his palsied arm. Now the Hornet, Edward joined the Slingers and became friends with Ricochet and fell in love with Dusk. When the Slingers disbanded, Hornet tried to function as a solo hero bu was killed by a brainwashed Wolverine


  • Hornet armor-Hornet's powers are derived from his flight armor. Its jetpack and wings allow him to fly, and micro-servos in the armor boost his strength. His gauntlets can fire sedative dart stingers or high-intensity lasers.
