First Appearance

Spider-Man: India #1

(January, 2005)

Pavitr Prabhakar, a poor Indian boy, lives in a village and moves to Mumbai with his aunt Maya and uncle Bhim to study after getting half a scholarship. His parents died some years ago. Other boys at the school tease him and beat him. He knows his uncle Bhim is struggling to support him and his aunt Maya, and pay the school. Only Meera Jain, a girl from school, befriends him. Meanwhile, Nalin Oberoi, a local crimelord, uses an amulet to perform an ancient ritual, where he gets possessed by a demon committed to opening the gate for other demons to get back to Earth. While being chased by other kids, Pavitr encounters an ancient yogi who gives him the power of a spider, to fight the evil that threatens the world. While discovering his powers, Pavitr refuses to help a woman being attacked by several men. He leaves the place, but comes back when he hears his uncle's cry, who was stabbed when he tried to help the woman. Thus Pavitr understands that with great power comes great responsibility.

Some time later, Spider-Man is encountered by Superior Spider-Man (Otto Octavius), who saves him from certain death by Karn. He joins the team of Spider-Men from many dimensions to battle The Inheritors.

Upon arriving in Earth-3145 and meeting this reality's Ben Parker, Pavitr suffered an existential crisis regarding to the overwhelming number of similarities between himself and the other Spider-Totems, especially the Peter Parker of Earth-616. In which Pavitr felt like he and the others are echoes or distorted reflections of the Earth-616 Peter, and therefore expendable in the coming battle against the Inheritors. However, his worries were refuted by Spider-UK, who stated that each Spider-Man is unique and special in their own way.
