Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 296,920 views on Thursday, 16 November 2023 our article of the day is Madame Web.

Madame Web (Cassandra Webb) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #210, published November 1980, and was created by writer Denny O'Neil and artist John Romita Jr. She is usually depicted as a supporting character in the Spider-Man comic book series, where she appears as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis, connected to a life support system resembling a spiderweb.

Madame Web is a clairvoyant, and precognitive mutant who first appears to help Spider-Man find a kidnapping victim. She is not one of the mutants that lost their power during the "Decimation" storyline. In "Grim Hunt", she is attacked by Sarah and Ana Kravinoff, who kills her, but before she died she was able to pass her powers of precognition as well as her blindness on to Julia Carpenter, who becomes the next Madame Web. Webb is consequently resurrected by Ben Reilly, before succumbing to the Carrion Virus. Webb is the grandmother of the fourth Spider-Woman, Charlotte Witter.

Madame Web has appeared in or served as inspiration for several Spider-Man related media. Rachel Dratch voices "C. Weber", a character loosely based on Madame Web, in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023), while Dakota Johnson will portray an original incarnation named Cassie Webb in an upcoming self-titled film.
