History: Last survivor of the doomed planet Prikton, Web Black's parents fired him off in a rocket ship bound for Earth shortly before his homeworld was destroyed. The infant child was adopted by millionaire couple Bento and Maria Prados, and raised as their son, Pedro. However as he grew he developed no superhuman abilities whatsoever due to his alien physiology. When he was 18 he was bitten by a radioactive spider, and as a result spent several months in hospital; when he was discharged the doctor informed him he had been lucky not to develop some form of cancer due to the radiation. Feeling somewhat cheated by these brushes with fate, Web Black decided to become a superhero anyway; he used his vast family fortune to develop a costume equipped with several gadgets. However he retains the niggling feeling he should have developed powers somewhere along the way, often taking insane risks such as jumping in front of bullets or jumping off tall buildings to check and see if he has suddenly become invulnerable; as a result, he spends a lot of time in hospital recovering.
