Fritz von Meyer was once a Nazi scientist who fled Germany at the end of World War II to settle in South America. A world expert on toxic poisons and apiculture (that would be bee keeping) he continued his research on breeding patterns of killer bees deep in the South American jungles.
One day while searching for bees in the jungle he came across a hive that were unlike any he had ever seen. This particular hive exhibited no fear, an unusual passivity, and a highly developed intelligence. Von Meyer had suspected that the bees were mutated by a meteor bombardment’s radiation so he decided to build a device that would reawaken the bee’s killer instincts.However his calculations were off and the device caused the bees to attack and kill him. His conscience would transfer itself to the bees and thus, von Meyer became an aggregate being, a living embodiment of the swarm, with his own scientific mind added to the mutant intelligence of the multitude of bees. The Swarm would become a menace to Spider Man and later the Runaways.
According to the Marvel Wiki, Swarm is a composite being of hundreds of thousands of bees driven by a human intelligence. Swarm is technically intangible, as his body is merely an aggregate of tiny forms, and he can fly through the air or assume any shape and size he desires. Swarm can also mentally influence the actions of other bees, the full range of which may extend over hundreds of yards in radius. At first, Swarm seemed capable of only controlling other bees, but he has exhibited the ability to communicate/control other insects as well.
So, what do you think of Swarm? Leave a comment below letting us know!
