Lewis Wyler SMTNAS

Turbo Jet was the first villain on Spider-Man: The New Animated Series and voiced by Harold Perrineau, Jr.. Like most of the original characters on the series, Turbo Jet is loosely based on existing characters Blue Streak and Rocket Racer.

Lewis Wyler was a brilliant engineer working for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to make a new suit called the A/R Spacesuit. However, he was stealing from his firm and fired in disgrace while his theories were discounted by the scientific community. He went to work at Empire State University in New York City as a janitor. He completed the suit and turned to a life of crime.

While living in the school's Villeroy Towers, Oscorp Industries tried to buy the buildings to demolish them. Wyler decided to test his suit to steal the Hapsburg Treasure, an enormous ruby, from the Manhattan Museum of Art. He was successful in stealing the jewel but encountered the superhero Spider-Man. He pushed a truck towards some innocent bystanders forcing the hero to rescue them while he escaped. Wyler secretly gave the jewel to the group fighting for Villeroy Towers making him look like a modern Robin Hood.

Turbo Jet then went after a rare first edition book, but severely injured a guard in the process. Spider-Man chased him into a mannequin factory where he berated the thief. Turbo Jet pointed out that the people liked his thievery more than the webslinger's heroics. He distracted Spider-Man and left. One night he went to see his contact, and Spider-Man followed already suspecting Wyler. He sold the book and told the man he wanted to steal the telescope of Galileo Galilei, which Oscorp was going to auction off so they could build their science center. Spider-Man stopped Wyler but the police arrived and thought the wallcrawler was the one dealing.

With public opinion on his side, Turbo Jet interrupted the ceremony hosted by Harry Osborn to get the telescope. Spider-Man stopped him but the protestors thought he was the villain. The police announced that Spider-Man had tipped them off and the telescope was a fake. He threw the imitation in anger injuring a woman. He then kidnapped Mary Jane Watson and fled so Spider-Man followed. Spider-Man deactivated his suit and Mary Jane smashed his helmet in. Wyler was knocked unconscious by Spider-Man and presumably arrested.
