Marvel Legends - SPIDER-WOMAN (Modern)!

Marvel Legends - Spider-Man (Lizard BAF Wave) - Spider-Woman - Hasbro 2018

Action figures have this funny way of making me appreciate character designs that I really don't care for on the comic page. My reaction to this costume was very interesting. Batgirl's popular Burnside costume was unveiled in December '14 and I loved the fun utilitarian look. It made sense with the non-powered Gotham characters and their gritty environment. But then five months later in April '15, Spider-Woman got a similar redeco and I was not so happy. I just don't expect characters with legit powers to don stylized street clothes over spandex. Jessica Drew's new costume also marked a big shift in the artistic style for the series. Similar to a lot of titles at the time (coincidentally like Batgirl), the new art direction was much more Indy, which is a style I love in Indy comics, but I always prefer a more traditional style with my superhero books. So overall I haven't really been impressed with this makeover, but then this Legends figure comes out and I suddenly love it. Go figure. Let's check her out below!

Jessica's glasses come off. The design is very nice. They tuck snuggly under her hair without requiring a gap in the hairline.

Spider-Woman comes with the Torso for the Build-a-Figure Lizard.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Classic Spider-Woman from 2015.

And a whole bunch of Spider-Ladies: Ashley Barton, Anya Corazon, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Girl (Mayday), Spider-Woman (Modern), Spider-Woman (Ultimate), Silk, Spider-Woman (Classic).
