On her first day at Milton Summers High School in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, Anya Corazon, who is half Mexican and half Puerto Rican, is recruited by a mystical clan called the Spider Society to act as their agent, a Hunter. A ritual is performed on her by giving her a spider-shaped tattoo that endows her with spider-like powers. Anya lies to her father, Gil Corazon (a reporter for the New York Herald and writer of several major stories), about what has happened; she tries to convince him that she has an ordinary internship at WebCorps. Gil interrogates Miguel concerning what sort of work he has lined up for Anya.
WebCorps offers Araña various costumes, including suits resembling those of Supergirl, the Invisible Woman, Magneto, Spider-Man, The Bride from Kill Bill, Sailor Moon, Wonder Woman, and a giant rabbit costume (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Anya Jenkins). Araña, not satisfied, decides to make her own costume. She designs a costume with red and blue sneakers, blue track pants, red backpack, red gloves with many pockets, and big goggle-eyed sunglasses. A crusty exoskeleton covers most of her body with a bug-like bluish skin. In place of equipment like web-shooters or spider tracers, Araña attaches cords to discs that are about the size of her palm and have eight red legs able to remotely grip objects.
The Sisterhood of the Wasp, adversaries of the Spider Society, also have a Hunter, who fights Araña in the film.
