Quote1 I am a god. I have no place among you savages. All of you except this "Norman Osborn" are not worth my time. I will join your team, so long as he is the leader. Quote2
Ai Apaec



In ancient Mexico, Ai Apaec was worshiped as the god of arachnids. Unlike most of the other gods, Ai Apaec treated his people likes slaves. He did not care what they did for him, he believed that as long as he held the title of "God of Arachnids" everyone else was beneath him. Eventually, the other gods grew weary of him and imprisoned him deep beneath his on temple, which they later turned into a prison.


Thousands of years later, when a man named "Norman Osborn" visited the now decaying temple, he got his lackeys, Red Hulk and War Machine, to endlessly dig until they uncovered the hibernating body of Ai Apaec. When the sunlight first touched his body, he was awoken, and he attacked Red Hulk and War Machine, but Osborn calmed him down, and assured him that they were friends.

Dark Spider-Man

After Norman informed Ai Apaec of his plans, he agreed to join his so-called "Dark Avengers", though he was not fond of the idea of working with the government, but Norman also assured that was only to maintain their public image. He later injected Ai Apaec with an advanced form of Banshee, the Mutant growth Hormone, which placed him in a body similar to the symbiote Spider-Man, only with six arms. Ai Apaec was fond of his new form, but was required to continuously take banshee to maintain it.
