Veteran movie actress Tallulah Bankhead starred as Mrs. Max Black, widow (a.k.a. "The Black Widow"), a criminal who arrived in Gotham City to commit a series of bank robberies using a paralyzing spray derived from spider venom.

The Black Widow caught crime fighters Batman and the Boy Wonder in a giant spider web filled with two giant black widow spiders.

TRIVIA NOTE: Black Widow was also the nickname of Pauline Spencer (Ruta Lee), a beautiful woman living in the Dunes Retirement Resort in Arizona on the sitcom COMING OF AGE/CBS/1988-89. She earned the title for having married and then lost (through death) many husbands. See also - AUTOMOBILES:: "The Widow Maker"
