Powers/Abilities: A symbiotic alien, Bizarnage has the ability to graft onto human hosts in a process he likes to call "Bizarnagizing". His alien physiology enables him to easily avoid most projectiles and physical attacks. Although Bizarnage's intelligence is quite low, his crazed cunning makes him an unpredictable and nearly unstoppable foe. Bizarnage's twisted obsession with Spider-Boy (Pete Ross) is often the key to his undoing.
(The Outrageous Spider-Boy#254) - The nightmarish,
crystalline symbiote known as Bizarnage was the disastrous result of
Project Cadmus' attempt to synthetically
replicate alien DNA. Tragically, the albino abomination burst free
from his embryo-tube birthplace and wreaked havoc throughout Project Cadmus
-- oozing and slicing through everything and everyone . . . that is, until

Richards, Project Cadmus' Cheif Scientist, afflicted by the "evil"
DNA that rival scientist Dabney Donovan
had been secretly adding to his diet, set Bizarnage free from Cadmus' menagerie

Spider-Boy continued in the genetic research facilities of Project Cadmus.
Bizarnage wanted to be Spider-Boy, but rationalized that (since there can
only be one Spider-Boy) he would have to kill the original
Arach-Kid. After successfully dodging the webbing from Spider-Boy's
Web-Shooter, Bizarnage attacked
Cadmus Director Tom Harper (formerly
the World War II hero known as the Guardian
Angel) and attempted to graft onto him so that Bizarnage could
become the Cadmus "big boss."
But before Bizarnage could graft onto Tom Harper, Spider-Boy
lured him away by promising not to move. Bizarnage took the bait and
separated from Johnny "Red" Storm so that he could instead graft onto
Spider-Boy. As the Bizarnage symbiote slithered across the floor toward
Spider-Boy, the Arach-Kid fired his Web-Shooter at a button that activated
the door to one of Cadmus' Energy Containment Cells. The unsuspecting
Bizarnage was sucked through the door and imprisoned within the Energy
