Slyde (Jalome Beacher), is a fictional character who is a supervillain in Marvel Comics. His first appearance was in "Amazing Spider-Man" #272.

Fictional character biography

Jalome Beacher was a chemical engineer who created a non-stick coating that could be applied to anything, only to be fired by his employers. He created a costume coated in the substance and decided to use it to rob banks. His all-white bodysuit allows him to slide across floors with relative ease, and renders him impervious to Spider-Man's webbing. The suit has pads on the gloves so that Slyde can grip objects without them slipping from his grasp.

Slyde was part of the seventh such group called the Masters of Evil when the villainous assemblage tangled with the Thunderbolts, ironic because the Thunderbolts are mostly made up of reformed members of the Masters of Evil.

Upon the realization that he was turning forty soon, he got a new costume, gave himself a new (and fictional) origin, and made an attempt at robbing a bank with henchmen -- but it was all a ploy to lure Spider-Man out in order to fight him.. At the end of the story, on the way to jail, he mused that, knowing that he "went toe to toe with Spider-Man", he is entirely alright with middle age.

In "Wolverine" #26, Slyde was apparently killed by the sword of Elektra who was presumed dead/resurrected by The Hand. This was later revealed to be Jalome's step-brother Matt, wearing Jalome's costume and using the Slyde identity while Jalome was in prison.

Civil War

Slyde is among the army of villains recruited by Zemo and his Thunderbolts to serve as "hero-hunters" during the events of the "Civil War".

Jalome, as Slyde again, along with the Trapster, met with mob boss Hammerhead, who was attempting to organize a group of super-criminals to take advantage of the Civil War between the Marvel superheroes. However, Slyde balked at the proposal. He was shot in the back of the head and apparently killed by Hammerhead's enforcer Underworld, in order to send a message to those who would refuse to join Hammerhead's organization ["Civil War: War Crimes" #1 (February 2007)] .

The Initiative

The identity of the current Slyde is unknown, but he appears in Jalome's costume and has been identified as one of the 142 registered superheroes. [ #1] . [ [http://www.marvel.com/news/comicstories.947 Avengers: The Initiative #1 Character Map] ] . Slyde's appearance however is not proof of his involvement in the Initiative, or may mean the Slyde costume has passed on to an heroic successor.

Powers and abilities

The chemicals on Slyde’s suit allow him to move at nearly 30 miles per hour. He is almost impossible to grasp and he is incredibly maneuverable.
