As a god worshiped by the Moche people of South America, Ai Apaec is a powerful, chimeric being who resembles a man with the lower body of a spider, snakes for hair, and long sharp teeth. Prone to cruel torture and bloodletting, he was eventually captured by government officials and incarcerated in a secret location several miles underwater
When Norman Osborn is transferred to the facility from the Raft, he, along with the rest of the inmates, stage a break-out following a prison riot. Securing an escape pod, the inmates make their way to the surface, with Ai Apaec returning to the jungle.
After creating a new H.A.M.M.E.R. organization, Norman Osborn selects Ai Apaec to be the "Spider-Man" of his new Dark Avengers. Soon after locating him, Osborn gives Ai Apaec a genetic-modifying drug which greatly alters his appearance to look like the black-suit Spider-Man with four extra arms.
