SPOILERS AHEAD! YE BE WARNED!
“Cindy Moon was bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker. As a result, she developed adhesive fingertips and toes, the proportional strength of a spider, superhuman speed and agility, and a special organic webbing spun directly from her fingertips. After being locked away in a bunker for ten years, Cindy was set free and became the crime-fighting super hero Silk.
“After being freed from the bunker she called home for a decade, Cindy Moon discovered her family had gone missing. She found her brother Albert, who had started running with a gang called the Goblin Nation and had no recollection of her parents’ whereabouts. Now, when she’s not busy looking for them, you can find her swinging through the skies of New York.” Silk 001 (Nov. 2015)
Silk is moving up in the world. She has her own apartment, a GED, and is no longer an intern at the paper. She is assistant to the assistants! JJJ still bosses her around and calls her Analog (she does things the old fashioned way) and has her getting footage on Silk (sound familiar?).
Meanwhile, she is working for Black Cat fighting the Goblin Nation, a gang her brother was once a member of that got him hooked on drugs and did something terrible to him that broke his mind and body. Black Cat hates the infringement on her territory, some of her minions are jumping ship, and is working with the now bad guy Silk to stop them. While Silk is attacking the Goblin Nation she runs into Mockingbird of S.H.I.E.L.D. and beats her down.
Later, we find out Silk is still a good guy and is working with S.H.E.I.L.D. to spy on Black Cat AND take down the gang her brother once belonged to. In return for going under cover, S.H.E.I.L.D. is trying to help Silk find out what happened to her brother and where her parents are. They even helped get her brother into a special hospital. Last we see is an image of the Goblin King giving drugs to his minions to keep them loyal. TO BE CONTINUED…
I have been waiting SO LONG for volume 2 of Silk! They did not disappoint. I was worried for a minute when I saw she was a bad guy, but was cool with it once I saw it was just a cover to find out what happened to her brother and to stop Black Cat. I think it is funny Black Cat is unknowingly helping the good guys. I have no idea who the Goblin King is and I cannot wait to find out. Until next time!
