Major Story Arcs
Tournament of the Seven Cities of Heaven
As one of the Immortal Weapons she participated in the tournament between the Seven Cities of Heaven she fought and defeated Dog Brother #1. Following the other matches of the day she attended the dinner with the other Immortal Weapons where she was approached by the Prince of Orphans, requesting her and the other Immortal Weapons' aid in fighting Hydra soldiers that were threatening the safety of K'un-Lun. Upon learning that her home's safety was also in danger she agreed. With her aid the Immortal Weapons were able to defeat the Hydra forces, and also learned of the possibility of an Eighth Capital City of Heaven, prompting her and the other Immortal Weapons to stay on Earth to search for it.
The Eighth City of Heaven
After discovering a map, she and the other Immortal Weapons did come to find the Eighth City and were able to gain entrance, however, once inside they found themselves at the mercy of its demonic citizens and were taken prisoner. The Bride of Nine Spiders and the other Immortal Weapons were all separated, brutally tortured, and forced to fight battle after battle in the city's arena.
Iron Fist devised a means of escape and the Immortal Weapons were able to break free and fight their way back to the portal leading to Earth. There they were ambushed by Quan Yaozu and his army, and were forced to open the gate to Earth so that Quan Yaozu could take revenge against K'un Lun. Things did not go as he had planned and eventually Quan Yaozu ended up being saved by Danny Rand, who was able to broker a peace between the opposing forces.
Using a legendary creature called the Singing Spider the Bride of Nine Spiders was summoned and trapped by a man named Desmond. However, thanks to the unwitting actions of a group of thieves she was freed and exacted vengeance against Desmond for imprisoning her. She showed mercy to the surviving thieves and allowed them to escape with their lives, but ended up keeping the Singing Spider for herself.

The only known past incarnation of the Bride of Nine Spiders lived during the 1920's and 30's. She was encountered by Orson Randall during some of his adventures. The woman challenged Orson, who was the Iron Fist of the time, to a battle, but Orson refused to fight. As a result the Bride of Nine Spiders ordered the Lightning Lords of Nepal to attack him.
Another legend tells of a man called the Murderous Lion who sought to make her his mate by holding a tournament. This only served to insult her and resulted in the two fighting and The Bride of Nine Spiders took Murderous Lion's life, but was gravely and possibly fatally wounded in the battle. She was supposedly never seen again.
