JESSICA DREW is SPIDER-WOMAN!
Character descriptions in the Marvelous Universe differ from those in the official comics
Jessica Drew was an ex soldier who signed up to test new bio weapons at Wyndnam Laboratories in London as part of the High Evolutionary Project. However, Drew accidentally uncovered that the weapons were being sold to HYDRA. Drew stole the bio-electric solar suit she had been testing, stormed Wyndnam Labs and escaped into the city.
On the run from Wyndnam, Drew modified the suit so that it was almost unrecognisable and used it to try and take down HYDRA’s web across London.
The web-like design on the solar panels, the similar colours and design to Spider-man’s outfit and Drew’s trademark “trapdoor” approach to defeating thugs (using the London underground system and manholes to her advantage) earned her the name Spider-Woman in the press - a name she initially despised because it made her feel like a knock off of a more popular superhero when she had nothing to do with him or spiders.
