First Appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #367
A violent mercenary, Michael Bingham was selected by the villainous Taskmaster to be part of an elite team of villains that would learn to emulate the fighting styles of various super heroes and then take them down. Bingham was subjected to an intense period of training where he learned to exactly mimic Spidey's moves and powers. After completing his training, Bingham assumed the identity of Blood Spider and attacked the friendly neighborhood hero. Though Spidey defeated him with the help of an anti-terrorist operative, Blood Spider still lurks in the shadows, waiting for the chance to make his next move.
