He feeds on fear and despair. Introduced in Marvel Team-Up #68 (1978) by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, the being that would become known as D’Spayre was created by the Dweller in Darkness gathered the fear and terror from the sinking of Atlantis and Lemuria. He would become one of the Fear Lords and would rule over one of the Splinter Realm. He first encountered the Marvel Heroes when he captured sorceress Jennifer Kale, the cousin of the Ghost Rider brothers and close friend to Man-Thing, and the spirit of her dead master, Dakimh. He brought them to a tower in the Nexus of All-Realities and tried to use them to gather the energy for himself. Spider-man and Man-Thing would team up to defeat him.

Since then, tried to use his powers to not only feed on human’s despair but also to learn more about humanity. He once tried to convince his other Fear Lords to attack Earth and would later be attack by Juggernaut, who was under orders from D’Spayre’s sister, Spite. The Fear Lords would gather again to discuss what to do about the Serpents plan to conquer Earth. They would be gathered again by Kid Loki, when Nightmare would use the Serpent’s invasion to create a crown made of the human fear. This would come under the control of Mephisto and the Fear Lords became his minion until Kid Loki died later.

D’Spayre is one of those character that alot of people haven’t really heard of let alone thinking that he would be given a figure in Marvel Legends. However, he was given a figure as part of the Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness wave.
