Complete spider body instead of legs
Creators and Appearances
Arachne was a woman who claimed to be a better weaver than Athena, causing Athena to curse her into the form of a creature with a spider body instead of legs.
Arachne was one of the many monsters employed by Hera's Olympus Group, and battled Hercules's allies (as a way to avenge herself from Athena), and especially Spider-Man.
She later appeared in New York City after Hercules became infested with the Spider-Island Virus.
Powers and Abilities
Arachne is a skilled weaver.
Spider-Man mentioned Arachne the fact that her name was "already taken" by a member of Omega Flight, and proposed her "Spider-Woman", "Spider-Girl" and "Araña", all names already used by spider-themed heroines.
