Powers/Abilities: Web-Slinger, like most Multiversal Spider-totems, has superhuman reflexes and strength, sufficient enough to dodge incoming attacks from a few feet away and to fight hand-to-hand with superhumanly strong opponents.

He also possesses a psychic link with his horse, Spider-Horse/Widow, allowing the two to communicate and for Widow to respond to his orders almost immediately.

In battle, Web-Slinger wields two guns. The first, named Kisser, can fire strands of web-like material, and the second, named Biter, fires actual bullets. He has also been known to use a lasso in battle.

(Spider-Verse III#4 (fb) - BTS) - Patrick O'Hara's brother Ben died in his arms while serving against Patrick in a civil war.

(Vault of Spiders#1/2 (fb)) - Patrick O'Hara eventually made a living as a trick shootist in a traveling medicine show run by Doc Morbius, spinning false yarns and performing trick shots to draw in customers to purchase Doc Morbius' "miracle elixir." At some point, a beaker of chemicals spilled onto a spider that subsequently bit O'Hara, granting him superhuman powers.

(Spider-Verse III#4 (fb) - BTS) - The spider also bit O'Hara's horse Widow, granting the two a psychic connection. O'Hara decided he wanted to use his powers for good in a world "full of evil" and he had Widow start wearing a mask to prevent anyone recognizing him in the new identity of Spider-Horse.

(Spider-Geddon Handbook - Spider-Men of the Multiverse Appendix - BTS) - O'Hara himself became the lawman Spider-Man, riding Spider-Horse into battle.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#9/2) - When the vampiric Earth-001 Inheritor Morlun returned home for a feast with a Spider-totem to devour, the Inheritor patriarch Solus asked the Master Weaver what reality the Spider-totem was from and Master Weaver displayed several Spider-totems from across the Multiverse including the cowboy Spider-Man before announcing that Morlun's victim was from Earth-9105.

(Secret Wars: Official Guide to the Marvel Multiverse - BTS) - The cowboy Spider-Man and his wall-crawling horse were recruited onto the Multiversal Web-Warriors, a subgroup of the Spider-Army.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#12) - The cowboy Spider-Man and his horse accompanied the other Web-Warriors in fleeing from a helicopters that were ordering the sentient Spider-Mobile of Earth-53931 to pull over. Before the helicopter could catch up, however, Web-Slinger and the other Web-Warriors fled through a portal to another reality.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#13) - Web-Slinger and Widow continued to ride alongside the Web-Warriors as they traversed the Multiverse. As he rode, Spider-Man-1610 communicated to Spider-Man-616 that they would swing by Earth-001 and pick up the stranded Black Widow-1610.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#14) - Web-Slinger and Widow emerged from a portal alongside the Web-Warriors into a massive battle against the Inheritors. During the battle, he charged Widow into the fray against the Inheritors Brix and Bora.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#15) - Following the defeat of the Inheritors, Web-Slinger and Widow watched as Earth-982's May Parker said goodbye to Earth-616's Peter Parker Spider-Man before returning to her home reality. He was then presumably returned to his home reality like many of the other assembled Spider-totems.

(Vault of Spiders#1) - While thinking of which Spider-totems to recruit into a new Spider-Army, Earth-001's Master Weaver glimpsed Earth-31913, where the cowboy Spider-Man was riding his horse.

(Vault of Spiders#1/2) - When a local came running into the Dead Tree saloon ranting about how a group of marauders had attacked a wagon bound for Dead Tree, the Web-Slinger rode out to investigate and he soon found his old employer Doc Morbius, who had transformed townspeople into vampires. Despite his attempts to reach the human inside Doc Morbius, the Web-Slinger was nearly bitten by Doc Morbius until he managed to knock the vampire back. The Web-Slinger then tried to break a group of captured children from their vampire-induced trance while Doc Morbius exclaimed how he needed the children's vitality to cure himself of his vampiric affliction. When some of his chemicals caught fire, however, Doc Morbius ordered the Web-Slinger to get the children to safety, claiming that he was not a monster even if he could not cure himself. Doc Morbius' lab soon exploded but the Web-Slinger managed to get the children safely to his horse by using the webbing fired by his guns to rapel down the side of a canyon with the children. Once to the ground, one of the children asked if Web-Slinger horse was wearing a mask and the Web-Slinger replied that it was.

(Vault of Spiders#2) - The Master Weaver continued searching for new recruits into the Spider-Army, feeling as if there were too few Spider-totems left as he again glimpsed the Web-Slinger on Earth-31913.

(Spider-Geddon#3 (fb) - BTS) - When the Inheritors returned and the Spider-Army split up, Web-Slinger was recruited into the Spider-Army group headed by the Superior Spider-Man of Earth-616.

(Spider-Geddon#3) - Meeting aboard Leopardon, the giant robot belonging to Earth-51778's Spider-Man, Superior Spider-Man's squad of the Spider-Army discussed using lethal force against the Inheritors and the Web-Slinger reminded the Superior Spider-Man that his guns were not just for show. Later, when Spider-Man-1610's Spider-Army squad engaged the Inheritors, Web-Slinger and the Superior Spider-Man's squad entered the battlefield to assist them and provide an exit via Leopardon.

(Spider-Geddon#5) - Web-Slinger joined numerous other Spider-totems of the Spider-Army in a massive, all-out assault on the Inheritors. Following the Inheritors' defeat, the Web-Slinger returned to his home reality like the other members of the Spider-Army.

(War of the Realms: Journey into Mystery#1 (fb) - BTS) - While working with Reality-616's Balder the Brave, Spider-Man-1610 informed Balder about the various counterparts of Spider-Men including the Web-Slinger, whom Spider-Man-1610 called "Spider-Cowboy."

(Spider-Verse III#4) - The Web-Slinger swung onto a train that was being robbed and asked for the robbers' tickets. The robbers attempted to shoot at Web-Slinger but he drew first and webbed each of their hands to prevent them firing guns. Confronting the robbers' leader, who had taken the engineer hostage, Web-Slinger warned the leader that he could use his gun Kisser that fire webs or his other gun Biter, which scarred. The leader responded by pushing the engineer into Web-Slinger and leaping off the train onto the tracks below. Web-Slinger noticed dynamite on the tracks ahead and hurled the engineer out of the train, safely leaving him hanging from a tree before the dynamite went off. Leaping from the damaged train himself, the Web-Slinger found that Kisser was empty and he fell into the waters below the tracks. Pulling himself out of the water and onto the shore, the lonely Web-Slinger was soon greeted by Earth-1610's Spider-Man (Miles Morales), who explained that he was jumping through alternate realities to help repair the Multiverse like an old television show. Unsure of what a television was, Web-Slinger summoned his horse Widow, explaining how Widow had been empowered by the same spider bite that gave himself powers, and revealed to Miles that Widow wore a mask to protect his identity. That night, Web-Slinger built a fire for himself and Miles and the two discussed their different worlds and when Miles admitted he didn't even know Web-Slinger's name, Web-Slinger reintroduced himself as "Ponderosa" Parker. Miles remarked that it couldn't be his real name and Web-Slinger admitted that he didn't particularly care to share his true real name, as people close to him tended to end up hurt and he had a long list of enemies. The discussion abruptly ended when Web-Slinger heard someone nearby and drew one of his guns, only to see a woman coming running out of the brush. After she explained that a group of bandits had been attacking and taking everything from his village just over the border, Web-Slinger led Spider-Horse towards the village with the woman and Miles riding. As they neared the village, the Web-Slinger asked the woman to tell everything she knew about the bandits and Miles translated that the leader was a big man with a poisoned chain who called himself el Escorpion. When the trio arrived at the Valle Amable village, el Escorpion attacked them and the Web-Slinger held el Escorpion and his men at bay while ordering Miles to get the woman to safety. El Escorpion then hurled his chain at the Web-Slinger, who dodged it and fired his Kisser gun back. El Escorpion soon managed to slash the Web-Slinger's arm, poisoning him, but Spider-Horse arrived and kicked el Escorpion in the back of the head. Miles then sucked the venom from the Web-Slinger's arm, saving his life. As thanks, the Web-Slinger revealed to Miles his true name of Patrick O'Hara and Miles was almost immediately transported away, leaving the Web-Slinger to tend to his wounds.

(Spider-Verse III#6) - The Web-Slinger and Spider-Horse were recruited to aid Spider-Man-1610 deal with a tangle in the Great Web of Life and Destiny. Converging on the tangle, the Web-Slinger and his allies were attacked by Machine Bem Monsters from Earth-51778 until Earth-19166's Spider-Zero and Spider-Man-1610 freed Earth-18119's Spiderling, patternmaker of the Great Web, from the tangle. Her reappearance banished the Machine Bem Monster and Spiderling then began untangling the Great Web, returning Web-Slinger and his allies to their proper realities in the process.

Comments: Created by Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith.

Web-Slinger's eye color was impossible to determine, as he was never seen clear enough outside of his trademark domino mask.

Depending on the artist in the issue, Spider-Horse has appeared either brown or white. He is more often brown though so that seems to be the correct coloring.

Earth-31913's Web-Slinger
should be distinguished from:


Ben was the brother of Patrick O'Hara who died on the battlefield in Patrick's arms after the two were on opposing sides of a war.

--Spider-Verse III#4 (fb)


Earth-31913's Widow was the faithful horse belonging to Patrick O'Hara. When a chemically-altered spider bit both O'Hara and Widow, they were psychically linked and both were granted superhuman (or super-equine) powers. Given a mask to protect his identity, Widow became Spider-Horse and O'Hara took on the alias of lawman "Ponderosa" Parker: The Web-Slinger. Shortly thereafter, Spider-Horse was recruited into the Multiversal Web-Warriors team to assist other Spider-totem counterparts against the Earth-001 vampiric Inheritors and following their defeat, Spider-Horse returned to his proper reality with the Web-Slinger, later aiding in rescuing captive children from the vampire Doc Morbius. When the Inheritors returned, Spider-Horse against assisted Web-Slinger in helping defeat the Inheritors and again returned to his home reality afterwards. When the Web-Slinger was later called to help free the village of Valle Amable, Spider-Horse helped the Web-Slinger defeat el Escorpion by kicking him in the back of the head. He later accompanied Web-Slinger in aiding Earth-1610's Spider-Man and Earth-19166's Spider Zero in freeing Earth-18119's Spiderling from a tangle in the Great Web of Life and Destiny before again being returned to his proper reality.

Spider-Horse has a psychic connection with his rider, the Web-Slinger, allowing him to understand and communicate with Web-Slinger at all times. Spider-Horse also possesses super-equine agility, making him faster than most horses.
