Synopsis for "Who Am I?"

Spider-Woman visits S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury to get him to fast-track her license to become a private investigator operating out of San Francisco. During her visit, she and Fury talk about her past and origins before they are interrupted by the arrival of Valentina de Fontaine. Spider-Woman then departs and returns to San Francisco.[Continuity 1]

As she flies across the city, Spider-Woman suddenly sees the image of Morgan le Fay taunting her in the clouds but dismisses it as a flashback to the hallucinations beset upon her recently by Angar the Screamer.[Continuity 2] Below this, Black Tom Cassidy and the Juggernaut are in town and reveal that they intend to use his first cousin, Theresa, as part of their plot to steal a shipment of Vibranium from the San Francisco Mint. At this point, Theresa's mutant nature sets off Professor X's Cerebro machine in New York, and he summons the X-Men together to prepare for a contact mission with this new mutant.[Continuity 3]

That night, at the new home that Jessica Drew shares with Lindsay McCabe, Jessica arrives and finds that a housewarming party has started. There, she meets their new landlord, David Ishima, with whom she has a brief romantic moment outside. This is marred when suddenly Jessica's acute hearing picks up a sonic scream, causing her pain. Fleeing, Jessica changes into Spider-Woman and decides to go out and find the source.

Following the scream, she finds the Juggernaut, Black Tom and Theresa, now garbed in clothing similar to the Banshee and calling herself Siryn, trying to rob the Vibranium shipment. Spider-Woman finds that she is outnumbered and overpowered, and the criminals easily defeat her and leave with their loot. When Spider-Woman revives later, she finds herself surrounded by police officers who want to arrest her for the theft.


  • Juggernaut is mistakenly referred to as a mutant in this issue. He is actually a normal human with magic-based powers.
  • From this issue Spider-Woman becomes a bi-monthly magazine.

Continuity Notes

  1. Some facts about Jessica Drew's history here:
    • Jessica recounts her origins as they were told in Spider-Woman #1 and Marvel Spotlight #32.
    • These origins are at odds with Spider-Woman: Origin #15. Although, there is no official explanation for these vastly differenced origins, one could assume that the memories in Spider-Woman Origin were manipulations created by Hydra.
  2. Spider-Woman last fought Morgan le Fay in Spider-Woman #6. Angar the Screamer appeared to make Jessica hallucinate her old foe in Spider-Woman #35. However, this is the real Morgan le Fay, who will attack Spider-Woman again in Spider-Woman #41.
  3. Storm thinks about the "stench" left by a demon that Kitty Pryde fought in the mansion recently. That happened in Uncanny X-Men #143.
