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>

Spider-Woman was a fantastic animated series from Marvel at a time when cartoons had begin to dumb down. What you get from Spider-Woman is still quite juvenile, but it manages to capture enough of the Marvel/Stan Lee spirit to make it a hit. The characterisations of Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman and co are good enough to make this an interesting Cartoon, and it has the added plus that it doesn't talk down to the viewer.

It was very interesting for Marvel to choose to make an Animated series about Spider-Woman in the first place. The character had only appeared briefly in the pages of Marvel Comics and then she was cast as a villain. The comics writers had to create a whole new character to accomodate the series, and with a fresh origin etc. The character of Spider-Man is all but jettisoned from the proccedings albeit as a guest star in the pilot episode Pyramids Terror. This series was exciting, funny and is well worth a look for Marvel afficianadoes.
