Wayep is the Mayan god of mischief that inhabits the dimensional realm of Xibalba, but for some unspecified reason, he cannot leave Xibalba at will.[citation needed]

In recent years, the computer scientist Benjamin Rabin used a computer system composed of abstract symbols that greatly resembled Mayan glyphs, inadvertently contacting Wayep. Wayep granted the professor the ability to increase his strength ten-fold and promised him further powers if he sacrificed a man and a woman while the dimensional barriers between Earth and Xibalba were weakened. Wayep then created a mystical blizzard over New York and Rabin managed to sacrifice a man, but Spider-Man thwarted Rabin's attempt to sacrifice a woman to complete the ritual. Wayep decided to personally interfere and challenge the wall-crawler himself, but Spider-man successfully trapped the Mayan god within his web and, before Wayep had the chance to free himself from the substance, the dimensional aperture started to close and he was forced to return to Xibalba.[2]

Wayep speaking with Mephisto in the Infinite Embassy

Later, Wayep spoke with Mephisto about the incoming Mayan Apocalypse when the latter visited the Infinite Embassy in search of information about how the gods planned to deal with the Asgardian Serpent; however, Wayep did not reveal what his fellow Mayan god Iztamna thought of the Serpent.[3]

However, he has natural shapeshifting abilities, which explains his overall demonic appearance. He also display the ability of create blizzards and grant inhuman powers to mortals, as shown in "Wayep Cycle" storyline.[citation needed]


Unlike several other gods, Wayep cannot leave Xibalba at will, being only capable to teleport to Earth during brief periods of time when the dimensional barriers between them are weakened; however, it is possible for Wayep to leave Xilbaba indefinitely if a magical ritual is made during such periods, sacrificing a man and a woman in the process.[citation needed]
