"I did the sneaky things, not so much the heavy hitting. I've had my chances to shine." -- Ben Colstone, the Wolfspider.

History

A size-shifting superhero out of Australia, Wolfspider is one of Honor Guard's newest recruits. Bitten by a rare, exotic, and unfortunately deadly spider, the young Ben Colstone is injected with experimental drugs to save his life. More misfortune strikes when unusual side-effects cause Ben to shrink in size. With the help of his mother, a brilliant scientist specializing in adapting organic entomological systems into modern technologies, he gained four additional appendages and learned how to control them. They were artificial, but the control was done via his venom altered brain and nervous system.

Wolfspider appeared with his teammates for a charity function in Australia. The money was for a new wing of a hospital. ("Welcome to HumanoGlobal")

Alongside the rest of Honor Guard, he laid siege to the Skullcrushers' hidden base in Ecuador. He and Quarrel II helped the Assemblyman II try to disrupt and penetrate the villains' shields. ("Mistakes")

Powers

He has the ability to shrink down in size to the smallest fraction of a normal adult's, not even half a foot in height.

Equipment

His flying vehicle serves as both his mode of transportation and as his primary weapons system. It projects "venom-bursts" that can serve a variety of functions, including stunning enemies and melting steel. While they seem a mechanical extension of the vehicle, the venom bursts are controlled and emanate directly from Wolfspider himself. Something he doesn't like being known to others.

Observations

Wolfspider is a long-time fan of the fictional superhero team Queenslaw; his apartment in San Francisco has several Queenslaw action figures on a shelf, and a Ute is sitting on the coffee table.
