On Earth-78227, events diverged from Earth-616 when Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson and his secretary Betty Brant attended the science exhibit on radiation that had a single spider bombarded with radiation. In this reality, the spider bit Betty Brant. Observing this Peter Parker took immediate concern and convinced Betty's boss to allow her the day off so he could take her out for coffee.

While out having lunch together, Peter and Betty were amazed when Betty exhibited the proportionate abilities of a spider. Peter convinced Betty to use her amazing gifts to fight crime. He helped her develop a costume and web-shooters, and she soon become the amazing Spider-Girl. Peter and Betty used this idea to snap exclusive pictures for the Daily Bugle and make them both money, taking delight in the fact that Jameson was paying the person he was vilifying in the papers. One night, Betty and Peter would witness a Burglar fleeing the scene of a crime. Not ready with the camera and out of webbing, Betty wwas too slow to act, and the crook made his escape. When asked why they didn't stop the crook, Peter said it wasn't their business.

They returned to Peter's home to learn that Peter's uncle Ben had been shot, and the crook had been cornered at the Acme Warehouse. Going there, Betty ambushed the man and was shocked to find that he was the very crook that she failed to capture earlier. Horrified that her inaction led to the death of her friends uncle, Betty would be decide to abandon her Spider-Girl identity.[1]
