Scarecrow (Marvel)(01 - Ebanezar Laughton)
Real Name: Ebanezar Laughton
Search for 'Scarecrow (Marvel)(01 - Ebanezar Laughton)' on Amazon

As the Uncanny Umberto, Laughton was a circus escape artist who helped Iron Man apprehend a fleeing culprit. However, he decided to make his profit in crime and became an accomplished burglar. He mostly worked alone - except for a flock of trained crows which served as carriers and killers - although he once joined Count Nefaria's short-lived team of super-mercenaries (which included the Eel, the Porcupine, the Plantman and the Unicorn). Eventually, however, from breaking out of prison so many times his mind snapped, and Laughton became insane, willing to kill people wantomly.

Laughton wears a scarecrow costume and is extremely flexible due to heavy training. He became an undead character, raised by the sorcerer Stern after falling into his own pitchfork after a battle with the second Ghost Rider. Before this he possessed no superhuman powers save for his "rubber man" ability, but after his resurrection he gained superhuman strength, speed and endurance as well as the supernatural ability to induce fear in his enemies.

Laughton's physiology and mentality would fluctuate quite a bit over the years, given his employ/manipulation by various demonic/magical entites, resulting in continuing conflict with Ghost Rider and his allies, even becoming a body-hopping ghost during one such campaign. Eventually, Laughton would be abandoned by various "magical employers", and stabilize physically, if not mentally.

Scarecrow was jailed in the Raft prison facility following a failed sexual assualt upon hostages who were freed by the Falcon. Following that facility's destruction, he found himself in conflict with Spider-Man and the Thunderbolts.

Scarecrow is among the army of villains recruited by Zemo and his Thunderbolts to serve as "hero-hunters" during the events of the Civil War crossover. During the Dark Reign crossover, he joins the Hood's gang of criminals. There, he agreed to help resurrect Bushman and free all the mental patients of Ravencroft Asylum to defeat Moon Knight.
