* ComingOutStory: Ultimate Jessica Drew revealed that she was gay in All-New Ultimates, ending years of speculation by fans. Her main complex about it was that since she was a clone of Peter Parker (who is straight), she couldn't tell if she shared the same attraction because she shared his genes.

* TeamMom: Soon to be quite literal, but recently, Jessica was seen acting as a mentor and confidante to SpiderGwen, who had popped over to Earth 616 to ask Jessica to help her remove some handcuffs she'd acquired during a confrontation with Earth 65's Captain America.
* {{Troll}}: Tells SpiderGwen that she'll have to melt off a pair of handcuffs that Gwen had acquired using her bio-electricity. Gwen initially protests, saying that as a former spy, Jess should know ways to just pop the locks. Jess points out that as a super-heroine, Gwen is going to have to expect the occasional flesh searing electrical burn. Gwen closes her eyes to brace herself, and then says she can feel her flesh beginning to burn when...Jessica pops the locks with a small screwdriver.
* WackyCravings: In Radioactive SpiderGwen #3, Jessica eats several single serving packets of butter.

Julia eventually moved to Canada and joined Omega Flight. She would end up unused for a while, until the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' story arc ''Grim Hunt'', in which she was captured by Kraven the Hunter, who wanted to destroy every trace of the Spider family. Julia ended up being picked as the successor of Madame Web and the process of the inheritance made her blind. She eventually passed on her Arachne costume and powers into Arana, as she becomes the next Madame Web as the original is dead.

Mattie became the star of ''Spider-Woman'' Vol. 3, which lasted for 18 issues (July, 1999-December, 2000). Charlotte Witter made regular appearances as an opponent for Mattie, who defeated her by absorbing her powers and those of the other Spider-Women. With the blessing of Jessica Drew, Mattie officially took up the mantle of Spider-Woman, but her life took a dark and depressing swerve. She briefly appeared in Jessica Jones's comic ''Alias'', where it was revealed that her boyfriend was drugging her to harvest Mutant Growth Hormone from her body, and was rescued by Jones and Jessica Drew and returned to her uncle. Becoming an amateur detective, Mattie took it upon herself to investigate the Slingers, a group of four superheroes wearing the costumes Spider-Man had once used to clear his name. When she was caught by Ricochet, she had sex with him in order to waylay his suspicions, an act she later regretted.

[[BackForTheDead She was one of the first characters sacrificed by the Kravinoffs]], with her dying words being a message to Madame Webb, to tell Spider-Man she forgave him for not saving her.

Nope, not ''[[ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied that]]'' one. This Spider-Woman was introduced as part of the 2014 high-profile ComicBook/SpiderVerse event, in ''Edge of Spider-Verse'' #2, created by Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez. This Gwen Stacy is from an AlternateUniverse where Peter Parker was never bitten by the radioactive spider, but ''Gwen'' was - and used her powers to go into music. Peter, inspired by Spider-Woman's example, turned himself into the villainous Lizard, which resulted in Peter's death and Spider-Woman taking the blame, leaving her wanted by the police and a recruitment target for the underworld. She received a solo ongoing by Latour and Rodriguez, ''ComicBook/SpiderGwen'', beginning in 2015.

Compared to other {{Distaff Counterpart}}s, Spider-Women are rarely an accurate one for Spidey. Most of the time, they possess a set of unique abilities on their own, instead of web-shooters. They also form a small form of LegacyCharacter pool (while not exactly a big one like ComicBook/{{Venom}} or Comicbook/{{Robin}}), and occasionally, each form possesses different names, including even Spider-Girl. Although the Spider-Girl in question is NEVER the AlternateUniverse version of the original Spider-Man's daughter.

--> '''Debut:''' ''Amazing Spider-Man'' Vol. 2 #5

The granddaughter of Madame Webb, Charlotte Witter was a fashionista with connections to the black market. This got her involved with Doctor Octopus, who abducted her and experimented on her to activate her latent psychic abilities. Tortured into being his slave, Charlotte stole the abilities of Jessica Drew, Julia Carpenter, and Mattie Franklin, before being sent to kill Spider-Man. She succeeded in capturing him, but he escaped. Charlotte was defeated by the three depowered Spider-Woman and her powers were drained by Mattie Franklin. Charlotte was placed in the care of her grandmother, who foiled her attempts to assassinate Spider-Man using her connection to Mattie's new spider-legs and returned her powers to dormancy. Charlotte hasn't been heard from again.
