Mattie attended the Gathering of Five - a mystical ceremony that bestows the five people gathered with power, insanity, immortality, knowledge, or death - in place of her father, giving her SpiderLimbs when she was chosen to receive power. Later, Spider-Man had a TenMinuteRetirement, so Mattie donned a costume similar to his and called herself Spider-Woman, taking his place in crime-fighting. Spider-Man realized this and helped her a bit after he got out of retirement. Initially arrogant and dismissive towards Peter, Mattie later attempted to initiate a romantic relationship with Spider-Man when Mary Jane was assumed dead, but was turned down. 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. Becoming an ammeter 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.

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.

Later, Spider-Man had a TenMinuteRetirement, so Mattie donned a costume similar to his and called herself Spider-Woman, taking his place in crime-fighting.

Both Jessica and Julia eventually guide Mattie to become the next Spider-Woman and defeat Charlotte, also getting parts of their Spider-Woman powers. Charlotte first appeared in ''Amazing Spider-Man'' vol. 2 #5 (May, 1999), created by John Byrne and Howard Mackie. Mattie became the star of ''Spider-Woman'' vol. 3, which lasted for 18 issues (July, 1999-December, 2000). Charlotte made regular appearances as an opponent for Mattie. Unfortunately, the next time Mattie appeared was during the ''Grim Hunt'' arc and she was less lucky than the rest. [[BackForTheDead She was one of the first characters sacrificed by Kraven and ended up dead]]. Charlotte hasn't been heard from again.
