Fictional team history
|First appearance||Spider-Girl #25|
The villain Funnyface gathered together Spider-Girl's enemies Dragon King, Killerwatt, Mr. Abnormal, and Sabreclaw. After breaking Raptor out of prison, the group becomes the Savage Six. The Savage Six begin to formulate a plan to destroy Spider-Girl when Funnyface's older brother Crazy Eight showed up to check up on Funnyface on his mother Angelface's behalf. Upon ignoring Crazy Eight's heckling, Funnyface formulated a plan to take hostages from Midville High School in order to draw out Spider-Girl. Sabreclaw and Mr. Abnormal abducted the students Jack Jameson and Courtney Duran while Raptor flew into the Daily Bugle so that they can alert Spider-Girl of the Savage Six's challenge to her. May "Mayday" Parker was present at the Daily Bugle at the time and left to change into Spider-Girl. Although Spider-Girl defeated Raptor, she learned that she would be forced to fight the other members of the Savage Six in a series of predetermined locations before she could save Jack Jameson and Courtney Duran. Spider-Girl was able to defeat Dragon King, Killerwatt, Mr. Abnormal, and Sabreclaw which one her the directions to Funnyface's headquarters. Spider-Girl received back-up from the Avengers and the Fantastic Five as Funnyface freaked out at the sight of them. Crazy Eight arrived at the scene and managed to knock out Funnyface so that the heroes can apprehend Funnyface.

Human Fly I
In the Earth-616 reality, the third Crime Master has created his own supervillain team called the Savage Six by assembling Death Adder, Human Fly, Jack O'Lantern and Megatak upon offering them protection from the law and Kingpin. Venom was planning to take out Crime Master only to be stopped by Eddie Brock. After a fight with Venom, Jack O'Lantern discovers Eddie Brock webbed up as Crime Master forcefully bonds Eddie Brock to the Toxin symbiote. The Savage Six targets the people Venom cares about including his family and Betty Brant.
Jack O'Lantern in his human guise goes first and targets Betty Brant only to end up fighting Venom. During the fight, Megatak assists Jack O'Lantern and punches Venom's phone before he can make a call to the Avengers for help. While getting Betty away from Jack O'Lantern and Megatak, Venom is attacked by Toxin (who is in full control of Eddie Brock). Venom manages to use a sonic version of a pepper spray to immobilize Toxin before getting away.
The Savage Six soon begins to target Betty Brant's family as Betty Brant and Venom leave to go warn Betty's family. They arrive at the home of Betty's mother where they find Human Fly about to eat her. Megatak has also been monitoring the phone lines when it comes to the loved ones of Flash Thompson. Jack O'Lantern then targets Jessie Thompson and ends up fighting Venom. Venom grabs Jack O'Lantern's gun and fires on him before Jack O'Lantern spews acid on him causing Venom to cool down in the fountain. Although Venom manages to get Jessie Thompson to safety, Toxin manages to capture Betty Brant while Human Fly is eating the leftovers of what is supposedly Betty's mother. Venom continues to look for Betty and ends up killing Death Adder after ripping Human Fly's wings off to learn where Crime Master is located. When Betty is brought before Crime Master, she is shocked when the Crime Master reveals himself to be her brother Bennett Brant. When Venom arrives at Crime Master's hideout he defeats Megatak and severely burns Toxin. Bennett Brant almost kills Venom with a sonic pistol and a flamethrower, but he is shot and killed by Betty. When Venom begins to make a comment on this, Betty states that her brother "died a long time ago."
