* In an untold tale of ''ComicBook/SpiderGwen'', she takes on [[SelfDemonstrating/CobraCommander Koala Kommander]] and his trained killer koalas.

Like most countries in the world, UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} has a number of [[OurCryptidsAreMoreMysterious cryptids and mythical beasties]] allegedly lurking out in the forests and outback (because [[AustralianWildlife Australia's natural wildlife]] just [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou isn't interesting or dangerous enough]]).
