Spider-Man Crawls on Black Widows Back

Black Widow is the first Spider Slayer seen on the series Spider-Man. It was also the first of many robots that would appear throughout the series. This is because the producers could have more violence against a robot than a person. It was only seen in the second episode "The Spider Slayer" but made many appearances in flashbacks. Although the first on the series it was based on the Mark XV of the comics.

Black Widow was designed by robotics expert Spencer Smythe and commissioned by Norman Osborn. Norman did so to pay back the Kingpin, who wanted Spider-Man out of the way. Spencer did it so he could build a hoverchair for his son. Using an army of Spider Seekers, Spencer found the wallcrawler at a party behind held by J. Jonah Jameson and Felicia Hardy. The Spider Slayer attacked the robot and captured the hero. Black Widow took Spider-Man back to OsCorp Industries where Eddie Brock unmasked him to reveal Flash Thompson. The real Spider-Man arrived and attacked the robot. Unsure of their victory Norman activated a Spider Seeker which caused the building to become engulfed in flames. When they tried to escape Norman told Spencer that if he did not defeat Spider-Man Alistair would never have the hoverchair. Spencer returned and attacked the wallcrawler. Putting his web cartridges into the Black Widow's jets Spider-Man outwitted the robot and caused it to fall into a vat of acid destroying it.

Because Spencer stayed behind to control the Black Widow he was caught in the blast that destroyed OsCorp and appeared to die. This caused Alistair to go into a state of depression where the Kingpin took advantage of his expertise to build an army of robots. Alistair later built a second Black Widow that appeared the same but was more self-sufficient than the first. This version could combine with the other Spider Slayers Tarantula and Scorpion to form a single large robot.
