Arachne was a young weaver, who was highly skilled at weaving tapestries. Her boasts soon reached Mt. Olympus, where Athena challenged her to a sewing competition. Arachne won, but Athena was unhappy. Athena told Arachne to punish herself. Before Arachne committed suicide, Athena turned her into a spider, to show the gods' powers. Arachne helps Peter Parker when the Green Goblin and the Sinister Six are destroying New York[1].
