Golden Age Origin

Shannon Kane was the wife of Harry Kane, a chemist who worked for the government. Harry was killed by "enemies of his country." In her husband's research she found the “spider‐web fluid” formula.

She also found a potential love interest in detective Mike O'Bell, who was as interested in the young widow as he was in the costumed heroine.

Powers/Abilities

Shannon was a young chemist assistant who became the wife of the brilliant, and older, chemist, Dr. Harry Kane. After her husband's murder, Shannon began sorting his work papers. She found the formula for a spider‐web fluid which “sticks like glue—and it's actually strong enough to swing on!”

Shannon invented a set of bracelets to shoot out the fluid, and became the sworn enemy of all criminals. Coupled with her athleticism, she became the Spider Queen.
