(Agent X#6 (fb) - BTS) - Tarantula and Marie Batroc were hired by Higashi of the East Wind to kill Agent X, Outlaw and Taskmaster.
(Agent X#6) - She and Batroc's daughter waited on a rooftop while the three targets fought dozens of other mercenaries below. When Taskmaster made his way to the roof, the two attacked him, he avoided and they fell off the roof. Stating that he hated ethnic stereotypes, he shot them both multiple times.
Comments: Created by Gail Simone and UDON Studios.
Upon meeting the girls, Taskmaster had this to say: "Listen, I knew both your fathers, and I must say, with all due respect to those brave and talented men...you cannot imagine my surprise at finding out they were heterosexual."
Tarantula's real name was revealed in Crossfire's entry in OHotMU A-Z Hardcover#3, with her real name revealed we learned the first Tarantula was her father.
Gail Simone revealed Tarantula and Marie Batroc survived their encounter with Taskmaster.
