History

Origins[]

The Inheritors are totems of the Leech, the lowest of all Totems (beings that connect animals to humanity) in the Multiverse. Only able to parasite the powers of others, the Inheritors feed on the life forces of both totemic avatars as well as totemic Gods themselves. Eventually they specialized in hunting Spider-Totems to access the Web of Life and Destiny[6] as they sought to defeat the spider deity of Earth-001, the Master Weaver. The clan mother and her offspring Bora, Verna, Brix, Daemos, Morlun, Jennix, and Karn attacked him at his home, but when Karn had his chance to strike, the Weaver revealed Karn found no pleasure in death and wished he could create and not destroy. Karn hesitated and his mother attacked the Weaver and was killed. While Karn was in shock, his father, Solus arrived and subjugated the Master Weaver with his siblings. Karn was confined to wear a mask to hide his shame and became an outcast. Seeing that the Weaver's power could be used, they used chains designed by Jennix to control the Master Weaver's power in order to travel between dimensions and hunt all Spider-Totems in the Multiverse.[7]

The Totem War[]

When the Inheritors managed to gather three spider-totems needed to perform a ritual, The Other, The Scion, and The Bride, the Spider-Army formed to oppose the Inheritors travelled to their base, Loomworld, to stop them.[8]

In the end, the Spider-Army managed to overpower the Inheritors and stop the ritual which would've ended them all. The Inheritors were left in Earth-3145, a universe with a radioactive Earth, where they would die due to them being extremely vulnerable to radiation, and couldn't escape, because the Master Weaver they had enslaved and used to travel across the Multiverse had been killed. However, Spider-Man gave them the knowledge of a shelter in Sims Tower, where they could survive, but not pose a threat anymore.[9]

Spider-Geddon[]

The Web-Warriors would eventually send Spider-Bots to monitor them but they were destroyed.[10] Meanwhile, the Superior Spider-Man combined Jennix's and the Jackal's technology to create clone bodies to where he could transfer his mind should his current body die.[11] This would make Jennix use the technology of the Spider-Bots to hack the cloning tubes and create new clone bodies to them and make their triumphant return.[12] After cloning their father's body and retrieving the crystal containing his soul, they managed to return him to life.[13] In the end, Miles, empowered by the Enigma Force, killed Solus with the Sword Vigor and the Spider-People used the Jackal's cloning tubes to create new baby bodies to the rest of the Inheritors, with no memory of their past, when they found out that Solus put the hunger in his children and it could be reversed. They were later adopted by Spider-Ma'am.[14]

After the totemic wasp-goddess Shathra had been freed once more, she eventually corrupted Spider-Ma'am and killed all baby Inheritors, leaving Morlun the only Inheritor alive.[15]

Notes

  • While they preferentially hunt totemic avatars, Inheritors can also feed on normal animals,[16] and humans.[17]
  • The Inheritors appear to be unique in Multiverse, as they had no variants.[18]
  • Inheritors are either unable to consume Symbiotes and those bonded to them, or have great difficulty doing so.[19]
