Anya Corazon basically has the same powers as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy (Earth-65). Anya made her first comic appearance in Amazing Fantasy #1 in August of 2004. Before taking on the Spider-Girl moniker, Anya went by the name Arana. Before she became Arana, she was caught in a skirmish between two mystical clans called The Spider Society and the Sisterhood of the Wasp, and was mortally wounded. To save her life, a mage from the Spider Society, Miguel, performs a ritual on her by giving her a spider-shaped tattoo that endows her with spider-like powers. He then recruited her to be a Hunter for the Society.

It’s cool that Sony is bringing this character to life and will especially be nice to see a Puerto Rican/Mexican superheroine, which will be a big influence for Latina audiences.
