    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Bloodshed owed Phillipe Bazin one million dollars. Spider-Man managed to beat him with the help of Bloodshed's brother, Ricky.  Even after Bazin disappeared the mob's successors still attempted to take him out in prison. They tried using poison gas and even sniper fire from a helicopter.  His brother convinced him to testify against the mob and be relocated and protected by the cops. The only condition was he wanted Spider-Man to help protect him.

    When he was being escorted to testify, the mob attacked under the command of Nico, one of Bazin's lieutenants. Spider-Man stopped them from succeeding. When taken to a different hotel than they planned to take him it was obvious that Nico had connections in the police department because Wyndell's costume was waiting there with a note telling him to meet him man to man. Bloodshed escaped the custody of the police and Spider-Man.

    Spider-Man found Nico first but Bloodshed was close behind. Nico escaped and blew up the building with previously rigged explosives in an attempt to kill both of them. Unknown to Spider-Man, Bloodshed survived and escaped.   


    Bloodshed was created by Kurt Busiek and Steven Butler in 1991 and first appeared in Web of Spider-Man # 81.
