History and Powers
Raul Jiminez was an up-and-coming agent for the Shadow Society, a coalition of organized crime syndicates. Jiminez was one of many chosen to given superpowers in hopes of creating a powerful enough group to battle the Wonders. Many of the test subjects died, but Jiminez was successfully given the abilities of a tarantula, including superhuman strength and agility, and the claws and fangs which secrete a toxin capable of paralyzing a normal human being.
Tarantula is often employed as an assassin, killing high-profile or highly-protected targets, but sometimes will provide "muscle" for Shadow Society operations such as bank heists or criminal transactions. The process of Jiminez's transformations has altered his personality, making him cold and erratic in his social interactions. Some in the Shadow Society have voiced concerns about their ability to control Tarantula, but to date he continues to be a faithful agent.
As Tarantula, Jiminez wears a black body stocking with red boots and gloves. A red cowl covers his face, but leaves open his fanged mouth.
