The Widow wiki last edited by KillerZ on 02/26/14 08:21AM View full history


Widow was one of many freaks in Chicago that could find no life for them on the surface and so fled to the city’s underground to live. This tribe came under the leadership of Rock and they happily lived away from humanity. When Dragon and Star came into this region in search of a fugitive, Widow saved their lives by spinning her webs and catching them as they plummeted through a hole in the ground.
