''Spinnerette'' is largely an AffectionateParody of {{Superhero}} stories (most prominently {{Spider-Man}}, of course), all about Heather's forays into the world of superheroism and the many problems that can come with it. Humor is largely derived from Heather jumping headfirst into superheroics without any forethought, and the problems that causes. But it's an upbeat comic ([[CerebusSyndrome for the most part]]) and Heather's many troubles never get her down.

** Played with in Spinnerette's... well, spinnerets. Unlike {{Spider-Man}}, Spinnerette shoots webbing not from her wrists, but from [[InsistentTerminology the base of her spine]] -- which still has no direct correlation with any part of a real spider's anatomy. Of course, Sahira [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that spiders have completely different physiologies to humans, and initially berates Heather for assuming that she was capable of spinning webs at all:

* TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks: Parodied by 90's Spinnerette, with her over-the-top figure, improbably long legs, bloodthirsty attitude (complete with a "Pouch sword"), and tendency to stand in anatomically impossible positions that emphasize her boobs and butt.

** Also: [[FurryFandom Animal-people]]. The werewolf, the aforementioned Cerberus girl and Katt ([[LampshadeHanging despite her insistent denials...]]), Evil Spinnerette and Spinnerette herself, to an extent. Oh, and Tiger, too, really.

* BatmanGambit: Not only is the government anticipating that Dr. Verde is going to create a CK generator, enhance Greta's abilities, and try to escape, but the general in charge is ''counting'' on it -- the possibility of escape, he says, is the best motivation for the captive scientists to build one. He states that he specifically engineered their environment to encourage rebellion (obvious cameras, unpleasant guards, mind-influencing drug-laced food and strictly controlled media - including lots of AynRand).

* AllianceOfAlternates: At one point, Spinny teams up with SilverAge and NinetiesAntiHero versions of herself, which arrived through spacetime rifts, in order to stop an immensely powerful supervillain called the Editor from "rebooting" the world. Then they also met the retired GoldenAge version... [[spoiler: who revealed that the Editor's "reboot" was not TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, but rather the creation of yet another AlternateUniverse, this one InSpace]].
