Tommy Webster was a guard at the museum, caught in an altercation between thieves and Daredevil. He was hit in the face after Daredevilís billy club made a wrong ricochet off one of the thieves, breaking his nose and spilling his blood on to the artefact. The blood completed an ancient pact and turned Webster into a Devourer. Devourers were creatures used as enforcers by the ancient Mayan death gods. These killers would be sent from the godsí underwater realm of Xibalba to the surface when sacrifices were insufficient or faith lapsing.
The ancient Vision Serpent artefact was said to have been used to sacrifice others in the Mayan culture. Those who used the Serpent were purported to serve the Lords of Death, and it was said that blood on the Serpent would bring forth an army of Devourers. The artefact was put on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, New York.
