• The source of the powers from the Peruvian temple is the same for both. Both wanted to help people but Ezekiel had wasted his powers. Ezekiel, in his 50s, contacted Spider-Man and explained to him the nature of animal totems: people who gain supernatural abilities from a mystic link with certain animals. wikipedia "At the temple's exit, Ezekiel had an epiphany - he realized that the reason why he wanted the powers was to help people, but that in all this time, he had done nothing at all with them. He was killing the person who was exactly what he wanted to be, but never became. Bolting inside the temple, Ezekiel attacked the Temple Spider that was about to kill Peter, and willingly gave his life to save Peter's, finally finding his redemption at the last possible moment." Some of the above information is extracted from the various versions of the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe and the more recent Marvel Encyclopaedias.
