Ed's Notes: THIS IS NOT A SPIDER-MAN RIPOFF! Seriously. In addition to a slightly different (and weaker) power set, and a different origin and background story, the Golden Age Tarantula debuted about 20 years before Marvel's Spider-Man! There is also a modern version of the character that's been gender-swapped. I don't know much about her, but these stats could serve as a useful starter template for her.
