* CostumeCopycat: Inverted. It was Spider-Man who copied her costume when he needed a new one in ''Secret Wars''.[[note]](For the sake of elaboration: while the Venom symbiote was crawlingover his body in response to him wanting a new outfit, he was mentalizing Julia's Spider-Woman suit)[[/note]]

Like the rest of the Spider-Family, she wasn't heard from any more until ''Grim Hunt'', where luckily for her, Arana managed to survive the events and helped Spider-Man defeat Kraven. In the aftermath, she was handpicked by Julia Carpenter as the successor of the Arachne suit and becomes Spider-Girl as Julia succeeds the late Madame Web.

* 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.

She was listed as a potential recruit for the Initiative during the Civil War, but 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 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.
