Fictional company history


Alchemax is a megacorporation operating in the year 2099. It creates products for virtually every consumer need, has entered into endeavors normally deemed non-profit, and even manufactured an entire city to be maintained exclusively by the corporation. Alchemax has divisions affecting nearly every level of consumer need, society, and government. Their products range from consumer products to military weaponry and private space travel. Alchemax owns and operates a privatized Police Department Public Eye.

Alchemax is also behind another police force called the Eco Corporation.[1]


In the Earth-616 reality, Alchemax started out as Allan Company, which was owned by Liz Allan.[2] The Allan Company became Alchemax when it merged with Normie Osborn's stocks from Oscorp and the last remaining properties of Horizon Labs after its destruction.[3]

Lightmaster assembles a more traditional lineup of the Masters of Evil when he and the Wrecking Crew run afoul of the Superior Spider-Man (Doctor Octopus' mind in Spider-Man's body) and his Superior Six while attacking Alchemax in order to steal its technology during a plot to blackmail New York City for money.[4]

When Spider-Man defeated Goblin King and unmasked him to be Norman Osborn, it was revealed that Norman Osborn (under the guise of "Mason Banks") created Alchemax in order to leave a strong empire for his grandson and establish an empire for the Osborn legacy.[5]

Alchemax later competed with Parker Industries for a contract to build a new supervillain prison. In order for Alchemax to win the contract, Mark Raxton and Tiberius Stone enlist Ghost to help sabotage Parker Industries.[6] In the end when the All-New, All-Different Marvel event started, both companies lost that contract to Regent's Empire Unlimited with the company also being behind Ryker's Island being renamed as the Cellar.[7]

Alchemax (alongside Hammer Industries and Roxxon) was mentioned in a conversation between Spider-Man and Human Torch to have once tried to bid on the renovated Baxter Building only to be outbid by Parker Industries.[8]

Alchemax has a division called Alchemax Genetics that is under the leadership of Robert Chandler. Alchemax Genetics later succeeded in creating several clones of Laura Kinney, though the girls did not manifest her mutation. When the clones Bellona, Gabby, and Zelda escaped and began assassinating Alchemax personnel they requested her aid in stopping them. Despite Chandler's assurances to the contrary, it soon became apparent that Alchemax was not as innocent in the conflict as they claimed. Laura and her "sisters" were soon attacked by Alchemax Genetics' head of security Captain Mooney who attempted to kill the girls.[9] When X-23 and Wasp were able to destroy the nanites that were inside the Sisters, it triggered a signal that led Alchemax Genetics' security team to one of Hank Pym's labs where Zelda was killed in the process. Before dying from her wounds after X-23 subdued Captain Mooney, Zelda told X-23 to put an end to the experiments of Alchemax Genetics' experiments.[10]
