Spider-Woman | Comics

Geneticist Jonathan Drew was an accomplice of High Evolutionary, who in a desperate attempt to save his daughter Jessica Drew from Uranium poisoning, gave her a serum derived from arachnids' blood and placed her into stasis. The process slowed down her aging process and developing powers. She woke up to find her parents missing, eventually leading her to work for Hydra who tasked her to kill Nick Fury; Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. but she refused to do so.

She stumbled onto The Thing and clashed with sorceress Morgan le Fay. With help from The Avengers, Tigra and Doctor Strange, Jessica was freed of Morgan's spells but lost her powers. While trying to restore her powers, Jessica sought aid from Hydra again and was replaced by Skrull Queen Veranke.

Veranke staged the 'Breakout' and the New Avengers were assembled. After the Skrull Invasion was over, she is rescued and Wolverine recruited her to the team in spite of Ronin's disapproval. To earn her keep, she helped Luke Cage find his daughter and double-crossed Osborn and his Dark Avengers. Abigail Brand offered her to become an Agent of S.W.O.R.D. and she accepted.

Following Siege, she was part of the adventures where The Avengers fought Kang (Next Avengers) and The Hood (Infinity Quest). The Serpent's War brought her close to Hawkeye and they started a relationship. When Avengers/X-Men conflict arose, she supported the former. As Spider-Woman, she joined forces with Scarlet Spider, Silk and Spider-Man during Spider-Verse.

A fictional super-heroine created by writer Archie Goodwin (Incredible Hulk, Iron Man) and artist Marie Severin, Spider-Woman is a female protagonist character from Marvel Comics, who debuted in 1977 on the pages of Marvel Spotlight ongoing series, issue #32.
