Mutation: Freak's powers appear to mutate as needed, he was able to adapt to the cold of water and even manifest clawed web feet and hands, his body also became impervious to bullets and physical impact after being shot by New York police officers. It appears that these adaptations can only take place after a short incubation phase in a flesh like cocoon.
While Peter Parker was assisting his Aunt May at the FEAST Project (Food, Emergency, Aid, Shelter and Training) soup kitchen, an unnamed heroin addict snatched the donation box and fled for the streets en-route to purchase China White (heroin). Parker quickly donned his Spider-Man costume and pursued the addict. Seeing that he was about to be captured the addict quickly caused the crowed of on lookers to panic frantically, creating a diversion that allowed him to escape into the alley way. Spider-Man was able to entrap him in webbing and recover the money, but the slippery addict was able to free himself by taking off his clothing, and fleeing the New York City, police officers who were in the processing of arresting him, by taking to the city’s rooftops. Frantic and scared he fell through the skylight of Professor Curtis Connors' laboratory, where he found several syringes that he use to sedate his heroin addiction, however the drugs that he used transformed him into a monstrous flesh cocoon chrysalis.
While picking up the trash, a streets and sanitation worker stumbled upon the flesh cocoon chrysalis hung between two buildings. Forensic Specialist Carlie Cooper performed a rudimentary examination of the thing, discovering that it dissolved anything it came into contact with. When he returned to his office, Professor Connors revealed that the syringes contained several months of animal stem-cell research. The addict emerged from the chrysalis as nothing but flesh and bones.
