It's real, Sina, it's all real. And if you guessed such a character was co-created by Mark Millar, you'd be right, as part of his and Steve McNiven's Old Man Logan series in Wolverine. Ashley Parker Barton, the granddaughter of Peter Parker – and the daughter of Clint Barton. And yes, that is all sorts of shades of wrong. But it was a different time, etc.

Though she was just called Spider-Woman in that one. Well, it was a less-different time.
