Fox Feature Syndicate

Spider Queen was the secret identity of Sharon Kane, a "sworn enemy" of all wrongdoers. She fought crime in a red skirt and mask, light blue blouse open to the navel, and yellow sash, cape, and boots. She also wore a special pair of bracelets that fired spider webbing. Her detective boyfriend was Mike O'Bell.

Spider Queen appeared in only three issues of The Eagle, and that only as a backup feature. Her final Golden Age appearance was in The Eagle #4 (January 1942).

Marvel Comics

Spider Queen was briefly revived in 1993, as part of a Marvel Comics' four-issue mini-series featuring the Invaders. The story, written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Nick Fury.[2]

(She is not to be confused with Adriana (Ana) Soria, The Queen who has recently returned in the Spider-Man event "Spider-Island" as the person behind the citizens of Manhattan being infected with spider powers as seen in The Amazing Spider-Man #669.)

Powers and abilities

Spider Queen was an accomplished acrobat. She wore special bracelets that could shoot out a web-like substance (similar to Spider-Man's webfluid).
