So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number nine! I hope you guys enjoy it!

Jessica Drew as “Spider-Woman”
Jessica Drew was born in London, UK. Her parents were scientists researching various new kinds of radiation appearing on Earth, which often meant carrying little Jessica around Europe researching odd occurrences involving radiation. However, during her teenage years, Jessica began to grow ill due to the amount of exposure to radiation. After searchign for help, her parents came across a project at OzCorp involving radiation resistant spiders which produce enzymes that helped fix genetic anomalies caused by radiation. Her parents were able to obtain a sample of these spider enzymes and injected them into their daughter. The enzymes in addition to the mix of radiation exposure combined to rewrite certain genetic traits. After the treatment, Jessica began to develop enhanced senses and strength. In addition, she was capable of producing a large amount of bioelectricty enabling her to shoot bolts of energy called “venom blasts”. In addition, the increase in bioelectrcity enabled her to climb walls. After her family moved to Los Angeles, CA, she began to fight crime as her alter ego, “Spider-Woman”. As years went on, she perfected hand to hand combat as well as developed the ability to fly. Soon, Nick Fury approached her to join S.H.I.E.L.D.’s elite team of superheroes, the Avengers.
