Evan Blake is a rich playboy and old friend of Kate Kane. He also happens to be an art thief who goes by the name of Wolf Spider.

Wolf Spider ran afoul of Batwoman when he began stealing paintings by depression-era artist Eisenstadt (including one from his own penthouse), whose works formed a map pointing to the location of money the artist stole from a cruel businessman named Grantham. Wolf Spider had been hired by the elder Grantham's grandson Nathan Grantham.[1]

Despite him and Grantham's success in finding the money, Grantham was mortally wounded when a statue collapsed on top of him. Batwoman was forced to allow Wolf Spider to escape with the money, without ever finding out his identity. However, having decided the prize was blood money, Evan disposed of it in Slaughter Swamp.[2]
