The Dark Dimension
Maelafic was a being of darkness created in the Black Hole of Bane. This kind of occasion happened once every century and every Wild One bowed at the creation of this new godlike being. He became the new ruler of the Dark Dimension for quite some time due to the former leader, Dormammu's death. Maelafic planned on expanding his monarchy into the Light Dimension, known to the natives as Earth, but he oculd not manage to get a portal open, no matter how hard he tried.
When a disturbance on the other side caused a ripple to open a portal in the Dark Dimension, Maelafic made his way through. Once in Earth, Maelafic was surprised to find the terrible world at war. He attempted to return to the Dark Dimension, bu the portal had closed, so Maelafic was marooned. He instead opted to conquer to Light Dimension instead.
After discovering he was weaker in this dimension, he learned he needed a human tether in order to keep up his strength. Maelafic came into contact with failed journalist, Quentin Beck, who swore allegiance to Maelafic in return for his life. Maelafic created the magical bond between the two of them, returning him to full strength. He then began having some of Beck's desires to become a criminal, so Maelafic decided to make a name for himself and become feared, should be ever become ruler.
Quentin came up with the name Mysterio, so Maelafic reluctantly used it. As Mysterio, he began robbing Oscorp of several pieces of equipment in order to build a doomsday device that he would amplify with his magic powers. During his very last heist, he was caught in the act by the superhero, Spider-Man. The two battled, and Mysterio won. Before he could kill Spider-Man, he heard the cop sirens. He decided to take the tech and go, deciding he needed a rival, and he needed Spider-Man alive, for now.
