Miles Mayhem

The leader of VENOM. In the comics, he betrayed the original MASK team by killing Andy Trakker, and stealing half of the masks for evil purposes. In the cartoon, the origin of VENOM is a lot less clear, though Mayhem's connections to M.A.S.K remain the same as the comics, and that he co-created the organization. Mayhem's catchphrase is "I oughta buy you a new face".

Miles Mayhem was once a designer that worked for the common good. Along with his partner Adam Tracker, the two pioneered the design and development of the M.A.S.K. weapons and vehicles. But Miles decided to steel the technology and set their laboratory on fire to cover up his crime. Adam was caught in the ensuring fire and was unable to escape.After Adam's death, Miles kept a pretty low profile until V.E.N.O.M. emerged.
