Marvel Legends Infinite Spider-Man Series -Spider-Girl -Warriors of the Web Review!!!

I purchased this version of Spider-Girl at a local Target store for around $ 19.97 . At first I thought that this was the same character released earlier, just in a different costume. After doing some Wikipedia research I've discovered that they are not the same people. This version of Spider-Girl is May "Mayday" Parker. She is the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane in an alternate future Marvel universe. This figure is part of the Hobgoblin Build a Figure wave . Spider-Girl  also shares the spotlight with the Spider-Woman figure as variants, with the subtitle labeled as " Warriors of the Web".

As you can see Spider-Girl comes with the head and wings of the Hobgoblin build a figure . Unlike her father as you can see she wears her web shooters on the outside of her costume . Now for a look at her out of the packaging .
I think Hasbro is doing a great job with these teenage character figures. They are very much in scale, maybe more so than the adult character figures. As you can see Spider-girl stands just a little over five inches tall, whereas the average Marvel Legend is around six inches tall and some slightly over that . I love how her hands are in web-shooting poses, plus the web-shooters can rotate around her wrists. Another thing to mention is that, a lot of people may think that the head is simply Spider-Man's head on a female body. However if you look closely that is not the case. Her head is a feminine oval shaped head compared to his head being a more different masculine shape. Now for a closer look at the build a figure pieces.

The above pics belong to the Hobgoblin character known as Phil Ulrich. I will review this Hobgoblin build a figure once I get him complete. As you can see Spider-girl comes with Hobby's head, backpack and wings, and sword handle. Now for some comparison shots of Spider-Girl to two other spidey female figures. The first is a comparison of her to the Spider-Woman figure that she shares the spotlight with in this series.
If you look closely their hands are posed differently . Also they are not the same person . Now for a comparison of this Spider-Girl figure to the Spider-Girl figure released earlier in the Infinite series.
As mentioned earlier, these two are NOT the same person . To end confusion , the first Spider-Girl released in this series, the one in all black and white is a character that was originally named Anya Corazon AKA Arana. She would later change her code name to Spider-Girl . So there are two Spider-Girls in the Marvel franchise that are two different people. Also notice that they look as if they are not sharing the same body. May "Mayday" Parker seems to be thinner than Anya. It's nice to know that the two above are different characters going by the same moniker/ name .
                                                          FINAL  THOUGHTS
( 1 ) ARTICULATION - Excellent all around articulation , and since her hands are in web-shooting poses,the articulation allows for multiple web-shooting posing options.

( 2 ) STANDING ABILITY - Get her knees and ankles in the proper position to make her stand without falling .

( 3 ) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? The idea that the original Spider-Girl that Marvel introduced is finally in action figure form . I love the rotating web shooters and the web-shooting poses with her hands.

( 4 ) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? There is nothing that I dislike about this figure.

( 5 ) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? An extra unmasked head would have been nice to have. Or even a half masked head similar to the Spider-Man figure in this series would also have been nice.

( 6 ) GRADING  SCALE - On a scale of one to ten I think that she is a Perfect 10 , despite the fact that standing her is quite a task, however once positioned properly she stands well.

( 7 ) FINAL  ANALYSIS - It feels great to add another spider female character to the collection . This Spider-Girl figure now joins the original Spider-Woman , the alternate Spider-Woman , the figure she shares the spotlight with in this series along with the other Spider-Girl, making up a small army of spider women .


  1. Hasbro has been putting out the Spider-Women like crazy, haven't they? I picked up this Spider-Girl, too, and while I like the figure I definitely had some problems with the webbing on her uniform being a bit messy in placed. I looked at quite a few Spider-Girls before finding one that was "OK."

    And unmasked head would have been awesome, though. Seriously, almost every superhero should come with one of those these days.

  2. You're right Barbecue17 that they have. And I'm glad they have, because I love every spider female figure so far. I never noticed the part about the webbing until you mentioned it. Also I agree that all masked heroes, both male and female, needs to come with an extra unmasked head .
