History: (Vault of Spiders I#1/5 (fb)) - The young Peter Parker's parents were investigating criminal activities and Wilson Fisk offered a Kingliner plane for them to use in their investigation. Learning of what the parents had uncovered, Fisk arranged their deaths by sabotaging the plane, figuring it was easier to kill them than buy their silence. As his parents' plane exploded in the air above the Savage Land, Peter was given the only parachute and pushed out in hopes he might survive. When he awoke, Peter found himself webbed up and surrounded by numerous giant spiders. The spiders subjected Peter to thousands of bites and poison, pushing the boy to the brink of what he could handle before letting him heal up, stronger than before. Once healed, Peter would be subjected to the bites and poison anew, each time surviving even stronger than the time before and he eventually developed new senses and abilities. Years later, Peter emerged strong enough to protect his newfound homeland as the Savage Spider-Man.

(Vault of Spiders I#1) - While searching the Great Web of Life and Destiny for potential recruits into the Multiversal Spider-Army, Earth-001's Master Weaver observed the Savage Spider-Man on Earth-83043.


(Vault of Spiders I#1/5) - When Ka-Zar the Hunter led his employer Wilson Fisk into the Savage Land to seemingly hunt dinosaurs, the Savage Spider-Man rushed through the jungle and arranged a trap for Ka-Zar. Ka-Zar soon tripped a wire, causing a dinosaur skeleton to fall atop and trap him, and while he was downed, the Savage Spider-Man swung around to confront the hunters as a hungry tyrannosaurus approached. Fisk immediately ran but the Savage Spider-Man stopped him, admitting he knew Fisk. Recognizing the Savage Spider-Man as Peter Parker, Fisk gloated that he had to see the Savage Spider-Man to believe the rumors he had heard. Fisk then walked off, arrogantly commenting that it was a testament to Peter's parents that it was easier to kill them than buy their silence. The Savage Spider-Man merely watched Fisk go, thinking how some deaths violate the world's natural order and how most deaths were perfectly natural, as a horde of Savage Land spiders surrounded Fisk's plane and made their way onto Fisk himself. Thinking how spiders tended to wait until their prey came to them, the Savage Spider-Man swung off as Fisk was seemingly killed by the spiders.

(Vault of Spiders I#2) - Still feeling as if he needed more Spider-Army members, Master Weaver-001 again observed the Savage Spider-Man on Earth-83043, this time as the Savage Spider-Man was holding a bone in one hand as he looked over a cliff.

(Spider-Geddon I#5 (fb) - BTS) - The Savage Spider-Man was recruited into the Spider-Army to aid against Earth-001's vampiric Inheritors.



(Spider-Geddon I#5) - The Savage Spider-Man accompanied a small squad of the Spider-Army to Earth-616, where he participated in a large battle against Solus and the Inheritors.

CLARIFICATIONS:
Earth-83043's Savage Spider-Man
should be distinguished from:



Wilson Fisk

Wilson Fisk was a wealthy businessman who was apparently involved in some criminal activities. When the parents of young Peter Parker met with Fisk during an investigation, Fisk offered the use of his Kingliner airplane in their investigation but arranged for it to be blown up to ensure Parker's parents remained quiet about what they discovered in their investigation. Years later, after hearing rumors of Peter Parker's survival, Fisk traveled to the Savage Land with Ka-Zar the Hunter as his guide under the guise of hunting dinosaurs. Secretly wanting to learn the truth of Parker's survival, Fisk witnessed Ka-Zar accidentally spring a trap set by the Savage Spider-Man and when the Savage Spider-Man confronted Fisk, Fisk gloated at having arranged the death of Parker's parents before walking away, happy to have learned the truth of Parker's survival. Upon his return to his plane, however, Fisk found it swarmed with giant spiders, some of which made their way into the plane and onto Fisk himself.

Kingliner

Kingliner was an airline that Wilson Fisk arranged for the parents of the young Peter Parker to use in their investigation of recent criminal activity. When the parents learned of information involving Fisk himself, Fisk arranged for their plane to be blown up. Years later, Fisk used a Kingliner plane to travel to the Savage Land, where he learned of Peter Parker's survival as the Savage Spider-Man. Admitting he only wished to see the truth in the rumors of Parker's survival, Fisk returned to his plane, which was soon overrun by giant Savage Land spiders.

Savage Land

The Savage Land was a jungle area in which dinosaurs still roamed the earth. As a child, Peter Parker's parents were flying over the Savage Land in a plane when it exploded. Peter was pushed out of the crashing plane with the only parachute and he landed in the middle of the Savage Land, where a group of giant spiders tested his resolve by biting and poisoning him several times. Each time, Parker emerged from his predicament stronger than before until he was strong enough to become the Savage Land's protector as the Savage Spider-Man. Years later, Wilson Fisk and Ka-Zar the Hunter traveled to the Savage Land, seemingly to hunt dinosaurs, and the Savage Spider-Man set a trap that Ka-Zar sprung, separately himself from the fleeing Fisk. When Fisk was confronted by the Savage Spider-Man, Fisk walked off, happy to have seen the truth in the rumors of Parker's survival. The Savage Spider-Man then swung off as the giant spiders swarmed over Fisk's plane and Fisk himself.
