Dragon King
Mr. Abnormal

In the MC2 universe, there was a group of Spider-Girl villains who banded together to defeat her. They called themselves the Savage Six, similar to the Sinister Six her father Spider-Man had faced.

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.[1]

In-story information
Member(s) Crime Master
Death Adder
Human Fly I
Jack O'Lantern

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. Agent Venom was planning to take out Crime Master only to be stopped by Eddie Brock. After a fight with Agent 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 Agent Venom cares about including his family and Betty Brant.[2]

Jack O'Lantern in his human guise goes first and targets Betty Brant only to end up fighting Agent Venom. During the fight, Megatak assists Jack O'Lantern and punches Agent Venom's phone before he can make a call to the Avengers for help. While getting Betty away from Jack O'Lantern and Megatak, Agent Venom is attacked by Toxin (who is in full control of Eddie Brock). Agent Venom manages to use a sonic version of a pepper spray to immobilize Toxin before getting away.[3]

The Savage Six soon begins to target Betty Brant's family as Betty Brant and Agent 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 Agent Venom. Agent 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 Agent 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.[4] Agent Venom continues to look for Betty and ends up killing Death Adder after torturing Human Fly by ripping his wings off so that he can 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 who was thought dead after being killed upon being caught in the crossfire of the fight between Blackie Gaxton's group and Doctor Octopus.[5] When Agent Venom arrives at Crime Master's hideout, he defeats Megatak and severely burns Toxin. Bennett Brant almost kills Agent Venom with a sonic pistol and a flamethrower, but he is shot and killed by Betty. When Agent Venom begins to make a comment on this, Betty states that her brother "died a long time ago."[6]
