* 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.

Heck, they both liked the same type of women: redheads and or Jewish.

** In the mainstream universe Jessica's had a steady relationship with men but she's also had ''a lot'' of LesYay with some female characters, especially her "best friend" [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]]. Blurring this further is that her [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Marvel]] self is openly lesbian.

* UncannyValley: Invoked in-universe. In the 1970s comics, this was Jessica's shtick; her comic's tagline was "To Know Her Is to Fear Her!" She is, biologically, literally part spider, and was raised by PettingZooPeople and [[BeastMan Beast Men]] to boot. When she finally enters the human world, nearly everyone is instantly, instinctively afraid of her, making it extremely hard for her to find work or shelter, and leaving her terribly alone. Still, through tremendous effort, she eventually overcomes this and makes a good life for herself, making for a very inspiring [[CharacterDevelopment character arc]]. However, ExecutiveMeddling later [[PutOnABus put her on a bus]] for 20 years, and when she was finally brought back into the limelight, this whole aspect of her origin was {{retcon}}ned away.

Most readers today seem to think that all her pheromones ever did was make men swoon over her.

When Jessica was little, she was infected with uranium radiation and was in danger of dying. Her father used an experimental spider serum to save her, and put her in a tube to accelerate the serum's growth, saving her life but aging her rather rapidly to the point that [[YoungerThanTheyLook she looks, and acts, much older than she is]]. She was raised in Wundagore by the cow-woman Lady Bova, eventually left to make her way in the human world, fell in love... then accidentally killed her first love with her latent superpower: bio-electric blasts. Accused of being a witch, Jessica fled Wundagore and was taken in to ComicBook/{{HYDRA}}, tricked into thinking that it was a good place for refugees, even though it's actually a terrorist group. She was trained in martial arts and learned to harness her powers more effectively. These include the discovery of her other powers such as Wall Climbing and Pheromones, which attract men and women. Oh, and she was given her codename, first Arachne, but quickly changed to Spider-Woman. (It should be noted that the preceding paragraph is the result of decades of {{Retcon}}ning with at least two complete origin changes, including one where she was a hyper-evolved spider. Jessica rivals ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} in the ContinuitySnarl category.)

And even though she's the closest DistaffCounterpart of Spider-Man (same powers except stronger Spider-Sense and organic webbing), she doesn't go by Spider-Woman, ironically.
