History: (Amazing Spider-Girl#16 (fb) ) - Deadspot somehow obtained a high-tech stealth suit, and established herself as a high-priced assassin for hire.
(Amazing Spider-Girl#16) - Deadspot assassinated a US Senator in Paris; afterwards, she was contracted by the South American crimelord Black Tarantula to assassinate the super-heroine Spider-Girl. Travelling to New York, she ambushed the Tarantula's aide, Chesbro, who had alerted Spider-Girl to the threat, in his hotel suite. Before she could kill him, he asked her to tell him who'd hired her; before she could finish telling him, Spider-Girl returned and attacked her. After she disintegrated Spider-Girl's webbing, Chesbro lunged at her, but was blasted with her magnetic field. She then went invisible, but Spider-Girl's spider-sense allowed her to track her foe, and she used her repulsion powers to knock Deadspot through the wall into the hallway. She ran into the elevator, but Spider-Girl followed her; they struggled in the confined elevator until it stopped in the hotel ballroom, where a wedding was being held. Deadspot turned invisible and punched the photographer, leaving Spider-Girl to deal with the enraged guests while she stole a waitress' uniform and snuck out.
(Amazing Spider-Girl#17) - The Tarantula called Deadspot in her hotel room, giving her a new assignment.
(Amazing Spider-Girl#18) - On her employer's orders, Deadspot snuck into the Crimelord's auction of a disc purportedly containing the Kingpin's secret files. When the arrival of Spider-Girl and the Hobgoblin turned into a huge brawl, Crimelord fled and Deadspot followed. When the Crimelord was confronted by Charlie Kurkle, the former owner of the disc, Deadspot killed him, unaware (as was Charlie) that the Crimelord was his lover Mona Carlo. Soon Spider-Girl arrived, and despite Deadspot's best attempts to escape, Spider-Girl tore off her suit's power pack, knocked her unconscious, and handed her over to the cops.

I may be totally misreading this, but it really seems as if the Black Tarantula hired Deadspot, so I'm not sure why Chesbro tried to get Deadspot to reveal her employer's identity. It's been a while since I read through Spider-Girl, though, so I may have missed something.
Physics was never my strong point, but I'm not entirely sure if a magnetic field, even a really strong one, can kill someone.
