(West Coast Avengers III#1) - After Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) put out a flyer seeking recruits into her West Coast Avengers team, Spider-King was one of the many would-be Avengers who showed up for the interviews. When Dee-Va, who merely showed up in an attempt to hook up with Hawkeye (Clint Barton) and had misunderstood the flyer, was asked to leave by Kate Bishop, Spider-King came in and sat down in front of Kate's desk. Kate immediately noticed the sheer number of spiders covered the man and asked about them, prompting Spider-King to introduce himself. Before Spider-King could even finish his introduction, a severely creeped out Kate Bishop refused Spider-King's interview, apologizing and demanding he leave fast as she turned her head away from him. After Spider-King left, Kate moved on to other applicants, who proved equally ridiculous.

Comments: Created by Kelly Thompson and Stefano Caselli.

It was never revealed whether Spider-King had any true superhuman powers, such as the ability to control the spiders all over him, or if he was merely just a guy covered in spiders. IF he does have superhuman powers, it was also not revealed how Spider-King might have acquired said powers.

Since Spider-King was never seen without a mound of spiders all over him, his hair color was impossible to determine.
