Brothers Wyndell and Rickey Dichinson were caught by Spiderman attempting to steal a car. Rickey cooperated with the police, but Wyndell fled the country before his court date, and went overseas to Thailand. While there he extensively studied the martial arts and renamed himself Bloodshed, an Asian-based mercenary who had also undergone several operations which enhanced his strength and durability. He came under the employ of Phillipe Bazin, who was a New York based crime lord with operations in Thailand. Bloodshed returned to the states as a guard for Bazin’s illegal drug shipment, but dumped the drugs overboard the ship they were on when the ship was boarded by the Coast Guard. Bazin held Bloodshed responsible for the shipment and wanted him to pay for it. With days left, Wyndell approaches his brother for help. With Bazin growing impatient, the brothers were confronted by gangsters, which gave Bazin the opportunity to plant a bomb in Rickey’s apartment. When the brothers entered the apartment, it exploded, seemingly killing them both. (Web of Spiderman #81, 1991 and Spiderman Unlimited Vol 1, #4, 1994)
