Spider Woman. The Spider Woman was created by Bertram Millhauser (Pearl Travers) and appeared in The Spider Woman (1944) and The Spider Woman Strikes Back (1946).

The Spider Woman is Andrea Spedding, who runs a life insurance scam whereby she ensures people, with herself as a beneficiary, and then sends her spiders to kill the victims. In The Spider Woman Sherlock Holmes stops Spedding, and in The Spider Woman Strikes Back she uses the blood from her victims to feed a carnivorous plant.
