This version of Spider-Woman was not based on the original Spider-Woman but instead, it featured Julia Carter. Julia Carter was an ordinary mother and homemaker as well as being an amateur tennis player who was target by a secret organization called the Commission for an experiment.
The Commission secretly injected spider venom into Julia into increasing dosages until she became Spider-Woman. Spider-Woman then became accidentally involved in the Secret Wars mini-series which became the inspiration for Iron Man’s alien costume design. She later joined up with Iron Man and his friends in ForceWorks.
Spider-Woman came with 2 psionic webs that could be fired from her hands when a button on her back was pressed. This meant that her arms had little articulation and had an awkward pose so that she could ‘fire’ her webs. This was probably a poor choice as she would have been a much better figure with the standard articulation.
The paintwork on this figure is awesome, if somewhat sloppy. She has a dark bluish costume with a large white spider on the front. The detail on her head sculpt is great compared to most of the others. Articulation is on the shoulders, hips, and knees.
The same figure was repainted and re-released in a later series as the original Spider-Woman Jessica Drew.
