'Quentin Beck' Is 'Mysterio'

Posted: 19 Jan 2019 06:37 PM PST

Take a close look at 'Quentin Beck' aka 'Mysterio', co-star of the new film "Spider-Man: Far From Home":

Mysterio, created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator/co-plotter Steve Ditko, debuted in Marvel's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #13 as Quentin Beck, a special effects wizard/stunt man working for a major Hollywood studio. 

His attempts to become an actor were poorly received, but realized his expertise in illusions could make him an effective criminal.

He developed his skills as a master hypnotist, magician, amateur chemist and roboticist, with extensive knowledge of hand-to-hand combat techniques learned as a stuntman.

His most striking feature, his helmet, is made of a one way plexiglass material. The helmet also includes an air supply to protect him from his own gasses, a Sonar to navigate within his own 'mist cloak' and a holographic projector to aid in 3D illusions.

His boots contain magnetic coil springs which allow him to leap as well as the ability to cling to surfaces.

His most distinctive and persistent trademark however is his smokescreen cloak, containing nozzles in the boots and wrists that can release a constant stream of smoke, shielding his movements.

Sneak Peek new footage, plus images of actress Natalie Portman ("Vox Lux") supporting the "Dior Forever Foundation" campaign, photographed by David Sims:

"Why is makeup universal?," asks Portman. "Because it responds to our desire to want to be better. It's also a way to express your personality while giving free rein to your imagination."

"The first time I probably wore makeup was when I was (playing 'Mathilda') in 'Léon: The Professional '

"The makeup artist used all natural things — like beet juice mixed with rosewater for my lips and cheeks, because she didn't want to put makeup on a kid. Using lipstick as a blush – it's a great trick when you want a different color and fresh shine on your cheeks.

"In 'Star Wars', when they made the 'Kabuki' lip on me, I understood the aesthetic they were going for with the entire character from that lip.

"When I'm not working, I like to keep things simple and less-is-more. I use minimal coverage, apply a primer and try to wear more neutral tones...
