Storyline

As a child, Jessica Drew was bitten by a deadly spider. To save her life, her scientist father injects her with an experimental serum. The treatment is successful, but the side effects are extraordinary. Jessica develops the ability to fire concussive "venom blasts," shoot web from her body and her hearing is enhanced. Now as working as editor of Justice Magazine, Jessica Drew also battles crime as Spider-Woman. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@rogers.com>

A note on the music
27 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was only four years old when this originally aired, so my memories of watching the show were pretty vague until MCA released a set of episodes on VHS several years later, during the success of "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends". Since I was an avid watcher of THAT show (and had taped nearly every one), I recognized that the music score to "Spider-Woman" shared several pieces and themes with "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends", and the syndicated "Spider-Man" animated series from 1980, albeit re-recorded for those shows. The difference is that the "Spider-Woman" music was recorded with what sounds like a full orchestra, whereas the other series went for more of a jazz/rock feel. The result of the earlier score gave the show a feeling of scope, which otherwise would have left it just as another "Superfriends". Still, for fans of Marvel and other superhero animation, this show is a must, and deserves to have its own release on DVD (as well as other Marvel titles). Hopefully, Saban/Buena Vista will wake up and give us a Marvel DVD Collection, as Warner Bros. has managed to release a number of the DC series to great success.
