Members: Arachne (Dr Sylvie Yaqua), Therak (Theo), and Antro (Hashi Noto) First Appearance: Avengers West Coast 82 What's Their Problem? Well, basically, they die if they don't do as their boss the Manipulator tells them. When they became super-human beings based on rare chemicals and spider venoms their injections were spiked so that they must recieve a regular treatment of an antidote.
Arachne: Arachne is capable of physically generating webbing and neuro-toxins from glands in her wrists
Antro: Capable of "trapdooring" originally himself and others near him, he can now teleport objects from a distance as well.
Therak: This guy is strong. Very strong. I mean, strong. He messed with Wonder Man and won. Of course the fact that he has six arms and is extremely large helped. Oh yes, and he has pretty tough skin too.
Weapons: All three members of Death-Web use an artificial venom as a weapon. This lethal venom causes swelling, bloating and discolouration of the skin.
Antro: "The name Avengers -- is DEATHWEB" (Avengers West Coast 84)
Arachne: "As Antro told you, fools -- The name is Death-Web!" (Avengers West Coast 85)
Therak: "You -- beat Therak? That's a laugh!" (Avengers West Coast 85)
Heroes They Keeps Running Into: While they first threw down with the Avengers West Coast (aided by Spider-Man) their main interest is actually Spider-Woman, whom they messed with one too many times.
People Who Think They're Not So Bad: Well, even the Manipulator who used them as his lackies didn't like them very much. And they certainly didn't like each other tons. Most Despicable Act: Holding Spider-Woman's daughter as a hostage to coerce her into killing Spider-Man and then joining them. And then doing pretty much the same thing again!
