Jonathan and Meriem Drew are scientists stationed at a small laboratory research complex on Wundagore Mountain.One day, Meriem discovers a rare species of spider known as Latrodectus Wundagore – the Wundagore Widow. Jonathan Drew uses the spider as part of his genetic experiments.
Shortly thereafter, General Wyndham arrives to supervise Jonathan's research experiments, as well as those of his assistant, Miles Warren. Jonathan shows Wyndham his advancements on a DNA compiler – a revolutionary device capable of reading a person's entire DNA strain. Unfortunately, the device malfunctions during an experiment and exposes Meriem to a large dose of radiation. Although she recovers, she is concerned that the accident may affect her unborn child.
After several months of careful observation, Meriem gives birth to a healthy baby girl. Jonathan and she name the child, Jessica.

Meriem is taking ten-year-old Jessica for a walk around the mountain countryside. Jessica finds a Wundagore Widow specimen and begins playing with it. Meriem is amazed that the spider doesn't attack Jessica. She tells Jonathan of the incident, but he grows angry at her for allowing Jessica to play with such a dangerous arachnid.
Shortly thereafter, Jessica suffers from a seizure and falls upon the floor of their home. Jonathan examines her, but cannot determine what is wrong with her. Jessica soon recovers with no apparent side effects.
Jonathan Drew learns that Jessica's bloodstream has been greatly affected by the prenatal radiation exposure. He begins running more tests on her and discovers that the secret towards realizing a decade’s worth of research lies within his daughter. Meriem finds out that Jonathan has been conducting experiments on their child and the two get into a fight. Jonathan attacks Miriam, but Jessica rises to her mother's defense, generating a stream of bioelectric energy at her father. Following the electrical discharge, Jessica falls down upon the floor.
Some time later
Jessica Drew emerges from a special tank inside of a darkened room. As she rises she finds General Wyndham and a team of HYDRA agents standing in front of her.
