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.
New Dark Avengers
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.. They fought the Avengers on Osborns behalf but were eventually defeated and imprisoned together with Osborn.
After the Thunderbolts went missing in the time stream, the Dark Avengers were recruited as a replacement team. They were implanted with nanites in order to prevent them from going rogue, and placed under the leadership of Luke Cage.
