History

Before Miles Morales

Roxxon was founded in 1932: while little beyond that is known about Roxxon's history, it is stated that Roxxon has a history of shady practices, such as relocating to wherever taxes were cheapest.

By the late 2010s, Simon Krieger became Roxxon's Head of Research and Development, with Rick Mason as one of the lead engineers.

During that time, Rick was tasked to lead a project aimed at developing a new type of safe and clean energy known as Nuform. However, as development continued, Mason would suffer various side effects from Nuform, leading him to realize that the new energy was not at all safe or viable for large scale implementation in New York. Krieger was uncaring of the detrimental effects Nuform would have on civilians or Roxxon employees and ordered the side-effects of Nuform covered up through bribery, falsified reports, and blatant lies. Rick and his younger sister Phin would eventually break into the Nuform lab in an attempt to shut down the newly finished reactor, but Krieger discovered them and had Rick trapped in an energy field surrounding the reactor and set it to overload, killing Mason as he tried to manually shut down the reactor. Rick's death was officially declared an accident, and the Nuform project continued on schedule.

Throughout Marvel's Spider-Man, Roxxon's name was seen throughout the city in every gas station, and their headquarters could be found in the Financial District. Shortly after the rising of the Inner Demons and the riots caused by Martin Li's corruption of Empire State University students during the Halloweed Party, ESU student Phillip Chang (whose assistance proved invaluable in helping Spider-Man find and restrain all the corrupted students) joined Roxxon as an intern and would often post about his excitement regarding Roxxon's latest projects.

Miles Morales

Upon Krieger being exposed and arrested for his crimes, Roxxon's reputation plummets (to the point where a woman tried to get her neighbor evicted upon learning he worked at Roxxon).

Characteristics

All Roxxon guards wear red and beige pants and red armor, and have guns, shields, sticks, and snipers. Some Roxxon guards possess equipment to nullify Spider-Man's Venom abilities, or infrared goggles to detect him in camouflage.

Gameplay

Roxxon have multiple hideouts throughout New York, including three hidden labs with Nuform reactors.
