- I have some of the strangest powers known, a combination of mental and arachnid-like powers. And I have no idea how I got them, or what I am.

Julia Carpenter was an arachnologist who loved studying spiders in particular. For a long time, she was satisfied with just studying them. However, she soon realized that she wanted to be exactly like them. She experimented with combining various spider venoms, DNA, and jungle plants. After injecting many human subjects with them, they turned into spiders, and nothing happened. When she took the best one herself, she seemingly was killed by it. However, she soon woke up again, with the basic powers of a human spider.
The rest of her story is not known for certain, as the chemicals have also affected her brain. Sometimes she says she went public with her finds, revealing it to the newspaper. Sometimes she says that she became a vigilante. But whatever is true, it is known that she was approached by Scarlet Witch to join her Brotherhood. She agreed, and was the 2nd to be recruited. She was given a costume and the codename Arachne, but she does not know if the concoction kickstarted a mutation or if it gave her the powers. It actually gave her the powers, she is not a mutant.
