Official Site: Marvel Comics

Swarm (Fritz von Meyer) is a fiction character and supervillain, an enemy of Spider-Man in the Marvel Comics universe. A former Nazi sympathizer, his most notable feature is that his entire body is composed of bee.

Fritz von Meyer was born in Leipzig, Germany, and became one of Hitler's top scientists. Escaping capture after World War II he became a beekeeper or apiarist in South America, and discovered a colony of mutated bee. Intrigued by their intelligence and passive nature, von Meyer attempted to enslave the queen bee, but failed and the bees devoured him, leaving only his skeleton. The unique qualities of the bees caused his consciousness to be absorbed into them, allowing von Meyer to manipulate the hive to do his will, although some of his skeletal remains are inside the swarm itself. His consciousness merged with the swarm to the extent that they become one being.

Calling himself/theirself Swarm, the reborn scientist battled The Champions of Los Angeles.

After that defeat, Swarm resurfaced to battle Spider-Man, in the first of many fights against him. Swarm lost his/their skeleton in this battle, but returned to fight again (no longer having the skeleton but still possessing von Meyer's consciousness), first teaming with Kraven against Icemen and Firestar , then against Spider-Man, but feedback from a weapon fired by the Rhino caused Swarm's bee body to disperse temporarily.
