Marvel's "Spider-Woman" On Disney+

The "Spider-Woman" (1979) animated TV series, produced by DePatie–Freleng Enterprises and Marvel Comics Animation, has been picked up for an exclusive 16-episode streaming on Disney+:

"...'Jessica Drew' (Joan Van Ark) was bitten by a venomous spider as a child. Her father saved her life by injecting her with an experimental 'spider serum' which also granted her superhuman powers. 

"As an adult, Jessica is editor of 'Justice Magazine', alongside 'Jeff Hunt' and Jessica's teenage nephew 'Billy'. When trouble arises, Jessica slips away to change into her secret identity of 'Spider-Woman'.'

"Spider-Woman retains the ability to fire bursts of energy from her hands called 'venom blasts'. A clairvoyant 'spider-sense' allows her to see dangers as they happen. 

"No matter where she is, she can close her eyes and see the event. She can also project spider-like 'weblines' from the palms of her hands or an individual finger. She also has the ability to change into costume by spinning around.

She can also fly at will..."
