* 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.

* ShesGotLegs:Both Jessica and Julia (during the times that they wore their original costumes) are shown to be drawn with very attractive legs.

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.

** However the UltimateMarvel version of Jessica Drew is a genuine example of this, being an OppositeSexClone of Peter who emerged intact from the Ultimate Clone Saga.
