From my perspective, Ebon (aka Ivan Evans) sounds like a pretty neat character, as well as very mysterious.
In his introductory episode, which is the Season 1 episode “The Breed”, Ebon refers to himself as the “Master of Shadow and Darkness”, as well as the leader of the Meta-Breed. In his mind, he has to be the boss — with no exceptions allowed. Firmly believing he has to run things and be in charge, Ebon is not one to be messed with — as the leader of the Meta Breed, he feels he has to be the mastermind and come up with the plans.
Anansi the Spider is a superhero native to Ghana, and the greatest hero in West Africa. Named after the trickster spider of African folklore, Anansi has the power to create visible, realistic illusions. As he puts it in the Season 3 episode Static in Africa: “people only see what I want them to see.”
He also has the ability to cling to surfaces, stand upside-down and walk on vertical surfaces.
In both his appearances, references to Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man are subtly made.
This is a really awesome show. And I like the character of Ebon (aka Ivan Evans), mostly because he sounds like someone neat to write for in fanfiction, as well as watch in the show, too. :)
