Madame Web in the comics
In the comics, Madame Web is shown as a mutant who suffers from an autoimmune disease Myasthenia Gravis and is connected to a life support system that looks like a spider web. She is also portrayed as an elderly person because of which she never really comes face-to-face with the villains in Spider-Man’s world.
However, she helps Spider-Man and his friends with her powers becoming one of his greatest allies. The character first made its appearance in the Spider-Man world in 1980. The character is also no stranger to the concept of the multiverse, which was recently seen on the big screen in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The upcoming Marvel film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is also based on the same concept.
Sydney Sweeney’s upcoming projects
The actor has been garnering a lot of acclaim for her roles in Euphoria and White Lotus. She will soon be seen in the film National Anthem and crime drama Silver Star among other things.
