Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D. (Shout! Factory/Marvel Knights Animated DVD)

 

Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: B     Main Program: C+

 


Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman is tired and frustrated of being used and abused by the various super-communities and secret organizations.  Only after recently after fending off the Skrull invasion, Jessica is recruited by S.W.O.R.D to find any remaining Skrulls left behind who is still infiltrating and planning the next invasion on Earth. Her mission is to find them and to 'take care' of them in Spider-Woman: Agent Of S.W.O.R.D.!
 
Spider-Woman (no relations to Spider-Man) has worked with HYDRA, S.H.I.E.L.D., S.W.O.R.D., and The Avengers.  Always working in secret missions to infiltrate various organization Jessica is tired of the various paranoia and espionage that exists between the superpowers.  Specially after being physically replaced in the most recent Skull invasion, an alien race with the power to shapeshift and copy power of various superheroes, she is about ready to kill someone. Whom better than to direct her anger and vengeance at than the remaining hidden Skrulls on Earth?
 
The mantle of Spider-Woman has been worn by many, but unlike Spider-Man, she has worked in the shadows and never in the limelight, or independently but with some secret organization.  Her origins are a mystery, her powers include not only super strength, but also flinging of energy, flying, and use of pheromones.  Her characterization is like a mix of femme fatale, superpowered secret agent, with a tortured soul, often making references Marvel characters Nick Fury or Wolverine.  In reality her character was created by Marvel in order to prevent other publishing houses from copyrighting the name.  Extras include behind the scenes of Marvel Knights Animation, Visual History of Spider-Woman, music video, and trailers.
