Deacon had been in prison and his parole officer had sworn he had gone straight until he kidnapped an old man and heiress. While holding these hostages, kidnapper Rick Deacon was confronted by Spider-Man and shot by the Police. Wounded, he stumbled to Harlan Stillwell's Laboratory where he overheard J. Jonah Jameson asking Stillwell to create a new super hero

There, Deacon forced Stillwell to save his life and also give him powers. Stillwell imprinted Deacon with the genetic code of a housefly and Deacon became The Fly. In return for granting him super powers he then killed Stillwell and set about on a life of crime as the Fly. [1]

During his criminal career as the Fly he fought Spider-Man, the Black Cat, Spider-Woman and the Moon Knight.

He began to lose his grip on humanity and acted more and more like a fly, being spotted eating garbage on scows. He blamed Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson for his loss of his humanity and planned to kill them both, but was defeated by Spider-Man and the Black Cat.

After his last defeat by Spider-Man he was interned in the Bwainstem Psychiatric Center for the Criminally Insane. The Scourge of the Underworld tracked him there and disguised as a caretaker of the asylum, but the Fly escaped form his padded cell just before the Scourge reached there.

The Fly then looked for Spider-Man, who was looking for the Hobgoblin. However, the Scourge then changed his clothes for those of a garbage collector (the Fly had never seen the Scourge's current mask) to approach the Fly and killed him in a New York city alleyway.

Powers and Abilities


Richard Deacon possesses various superhuman attributes as a result of having various genetic traits of a common housefly imprinted onto his own genetic code.

Superhuman Strength: Deacon possesses the proportinate physical strength of a 200 pound housefly. As a result, he is superhumanly strong and is capable of lifting approximately 3 tons.

Superhuman Stamina: Deacon's musculature now generates less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. Deacon can exert himself physically at peak capacity for about 6 hours before fatigue begins to impair him.

Superhuman Durability: The tissues of Deacon's body are somewhat harder and tougher than those of an ordinary human. While far from invulnerable, Deacon is able to withstand impact and concussive forces that would severely injure or kill a normal human with little to no discomfort. For instance, Deacon can withstand a fall from a height of 40 feet without sustaining even the slightest injury, provided he lands on his feet.

Superhuman Agility: Deacon's natural agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical capability of even the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Reflexes: Deacon's reaction time is similarly enhanced. His reflexes are superior to those of even the finest human athlete.

Adhesive Capability: Deacon's toes and fingers are covered in small, adhesive-secreting glands that enable him to cling to most conventional materials, similar to that of Spider-Man though this ability isn't nearly as developed as his.

Multi-Faceted Eyes: Deacon's globular, multi-faceted eyes enable him to see 360 degrees above, around, or below his head at all times. Whereas human eyes confine perception to a narrow field of view, Deacon's eyes devote equal importance an all possible viewpoint angles.

Wings: Deacon is able to fly through the air via the use of tough, membrane-like wings. He is able to propel himself at speeds of at least 69 miles per hour. He is typically able to support his own weight plus an additional 150 lbs while in flight and still fly at his top speed. Deacon's wings produce a high pitched buzzing sound and he can vibrate his wings in opposite directions at tremendous speeds for the purpose of creating a powerful shockwave. At it's maximum, the wave can hit with a concussive force equal to about 50 pounds of TNT.

From City of Heroes Wiki

Certain powers grant the ability to fly. Control while flying is the basically the same as on the ground, with a couple alterations. In addition to the ground movement controls (W: forward, S: backward, A: strafe left, D: strafe right, Q: turn left, E: turn right), flight adds two more. Holding spacebar will move you straight up and X will move you down. These directions are relative to your camera view, so if you have angled your PoV to be looking down, holding spacebar will actually send you "forward" along the ground.

These powers grant the ability to fly:

Peacebringers and Warshades have innate flight ability:

There are also temporary powers which grant flight:

Finally, there are powers which enhance existing flight speed without actually giving flight ability.
