In the comics, Morris Bench was a crewman aboard a cargo ship which tested experimental generators in the Ocean. When Spider-Man attempted to stop the crew, Morris was accidentally knocked into the water by the web-slinger as the generator was running.
The result transformed Morris into a man made of water and gave him the superpowers of water mimicry. As the Hydro-Man, Morris worked to declare vengeance on Spiderman and often attempted to kidnap May Jane Watson to make her his lover.
