I believe she will prove to be more of an ally than a villain, and will be crazy powerful nonetheless.

I remember an issue of The New Avengers (durning AvX) where Spider-Man said that they were too many "Spider-Ladies" seems Marvel doesn't thinks the same...

I'm so tired of these event tieins Marvel does every time there's an event and there are events all the time in Marvel.

I hope she turns out to be a villain.

@madeinbangladesh: TRUTH!! Marvel needs to cut down on these events, they're not special anymore. and they're just annoying to ppl that wanna read the individual series but dont care for the event

How many people did that freakin' spider bite before it died? Does anybody else remember "The Thousand"?

Dammit, Ramos. I'm usually a fan, but there is no excuse for the shape of that woman's body.

Spider-Man has few female enemies, when i was merging his rogues with Batman's it was hard to come up with more than two (maybe) female enemies. So this should be good. Plus the story sounds fun too, and plausible.

I'm really hoping to see a lot of Silk in this issue, from what we've seen so far, she seems like a very interesting character to me. You know, aside from the fact that she also got bit by the same spider.

@rainja: its painful to have to see Ramos' art every month. Good call avoiding it.
