Hydro-man is the name of a fictional super villain in the Spider-Man comicbook. Formerly a crewman on a cargo ship, Morris Bench, was involved in an accident with an experimental generator and volcanic gasses. The result was a body-wide mutagenic effect. Morris now had the ability to transform his body into a liquid-like substance and sought to use this new ability for criminal purposes. He then became "Hydro-man" and came into conflict with the costumed crimefighter, Spider-Man.

Though possessing no superhuman abilities aside from his ability to transform into water, Morris is physically strong (for a normal human) and a very skilled streetfighter. He is not among Spider-Man's brightest foes and is often tricked into electrocuting himself or mixing his water form with concrete. He does not seem to possess even an elementary school understanding of physical science.
