Kwaku Anansi is an African god Known as the god of lies, the god of mischief, Spider god, king of all stories etc. One day while bored after acquiring great power and legendary status he travelled to the realm of his father Nyambe seeking even more power. After finding his uncle in his father’s stead he was told about the “spider-flower” which would grant him the additional power he needed. Gifting him a water gourd Kwaku descended from the heavens. He ran into a water elemental spirit who he defeated in battle before befriending it. Next he battled a water and earth elemental who he also befriended and they accompanied him on his quest. That night he met a fire elemental before abandoning the four to find the “garden at the end of the world” where the “spider-flower” was kept. Here he was overwhelmed by a powerful spirit which controlled bees. Luckily the elementals who he had befriended came to his aid. After the ordeal he no longer desired the ‘Spider-flower” since the additional power he required comes from the friends he made and those he would make in the future [Spider-man Fairy tales #2].
N.B: Kwaku is the Spider-man of alternate marvel earth called “Earth-7082”.
