The Jester started out as an embittered actor reduced to being a punchline on children's TV.
The Circus of Crime are all entertainers-gone-bad.
The Blob and Mastermind both started out as circus performers.
Unus the Untouchable was originally a popular wrestler.
Destiny (Paul Destine), the villain who gave Namor his post-1950s amnesia, started out as carnival psychic.
Doctor Sax and Johnny Guitar, two one-off Dazzler foes later used in an Initiative Dark Reign story, started out as part of a band.
Ultra-obscure mutant villainess Bora was a failed ballet dancer due to her freakish height; her later partner Spark was a performance artist who turned on an unappreciative public.
On the other end of the spectrum, one-shot Spider-Woman foe Daddy Longlegs became a freak by stealing a variant of the Giant-Man serum because he was too *short* to be a professional dancer.
1950s Marvel Boy villain the Great Video used a stage act as criminal cover after gaining X-ray eyes; he'd started as a scientist.
Laughably awful one-shot Defenders villain Tappin' Tommy was...yeah, a tap dancer.
