With Sony making a bid to spin their Spider-Man franchise out into the wider Marvel lore, it is high past time to get some more ladies up in here.

Sure everyone knows Doctor Octopus or Rhino or The Vulture and on and on and on. But there's not much name recognition for the villainous women of Spider-Man.
