Mario Marconi first appeared in Episode 25, though we heard of him through Dr. Rick Edison for several months before. Rick was terrified of Marconi and considered him a threat. Marconi first appears as an Igor that was willing to work for Dr. Bob Tesla for free but, throughout the episode, items kept disappearing, secretly being stolen by Marconi.
When Rick comes in to kill Igor, Marconi shows his true self to a now terrified Edison.

When he attempted to shoot Rick and Dr. Bob, the Di-clotron fell apart in his hands and he ran away.
