Powers/Abilities: Krista is a very active and agile fitness enthusiast with some martial arts training. Her powers are derived for her armored suit made of lightweight "Arachnium", a unique bio-alloy synthetic spider web. She also wears a gauntlet on her left arm with many built-in gadgets and functions. It can shoot venom darts, but it's main function is as a high speed winch that can cast and reel in a thin Arachnium cable that she uses as transport.
History: Like her parents, Krista Silver is a brilliant inventor. When the formula for her miracle material known as "Arachnium" was stolen she donned an experimental armored costume and broke into the Synthtech Corporate offices to retrieve it. There she encountered novice heroine Ace of Diamonds, and Krista turned herself in after destroying the formula. Silver Spyder was taken to jail where she was recruited to work with a secret government agency.
Comments: Created by Glenn Porzig. Many thanks to Glenn for providing much of the information listed in this profile.
Glenn notes "Silver Spyder was a classic case of a hero introduced as a villain to fight the established hero so that she could be spun off into her own adventures." Though Ace of Diamonds, Silver Spyder and Bloodlust all made their first appearances in titles published by Lone Star Press, they were not a part of the Lone Star Universe, and there were no character crossovers with the other Lonestar titles.
