The Anansi are an arachnoid race that were one of the several species that comprised the Originators of Wakanda, the group of species that inhabited the land before men pilgrimaged. Both cultures originally co-existed peacefully, until conflict broke out when the humans started abusing the resources of the land. The Originators routed the humans, but as a result, the Gods of Wakanda came to existence from the heroes of these people. The Gods of Wakanda and the humans then fought back and banished the Originators to the Nether-Realms.
Centuries later, the Vanyan were among the Originators that invaded modern-day Wakanda through a series of mysterious portals. They appeared in the Alkama Fields.
A group of Anansi kidnapped numerous villagers and took them deep into a forest. Black Panther and the Hatut Zeraze confronted them with help from Storm, and forced them to retreat. While the Anansi escaped, Black Panther and his allies rescued their victims.
