Black Widow (I). Claire Voyant, a medium, is murdered and brought to Hell, where Satan transforms her into the Black Widow. She becomes Satan’s assassin, killing those whose souls are too evil to exist on Earth. The Black Widow can kill with a touch and has other, Satan-derived, plot device powers. The wrongdoers she goes after are ordinary humans, although one group of them call themselves Murder, Unlimited and another is the Cult of the Black Widow Spiders.
