To save his daughter’s life from uranium poisoning, Jonathan Drew transformed her. He conducted experiments that super-charged young Jessica Drew’s metabolism, giving her a variety of superhuman powers. Jessica grew up on Wundagore Mountain among the High Evolutionary’s New Men, until Hydra recruited and brainwashed her to be a living weapon and assassin codenamed Arachne. Hydra sent her to attack S.H.I.E.L.D. and its director, Nick Fury. Fury managed to break Jessica’s conditioning and turn the confused young woman against her villainous masters. Seeking redemption and her own destiny, Jessica became the sensational Spider-Woman.
As Spider-Woman, Jessica has had many strange adventures, highs, and lows. She has encountered monsters, murderous madmen, and magicians. She has worked with everyone from Captain America to the Thing. A run-in with the sorceress Morgan Le Fay resulted in Jessica’s apparent death, but her spirit and. body were later reunited. After her resurrection, her powers became erratic and unreliable, and she gave up her costumed identity, instead working with her friend Lindsay McCabe as a private investigator. During this time, various others took up the mantle of Spider-Woman, but Jessica eventually regained her abilities and took up her heroic identity once again. Since then, Spider-Woman has struggled to find a place, both in her normal life and in the superhuman community.
She recently rejoined S.H.I.E.L.D. She also rejoined Hydra, who actually restored her powers, and is now working as a personal double agent for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s spymaster, Nick Fury.
