Tarantula is a legacy name in the DC Universe. The original was a Golden Age vigilante named John Law who fought crime using acrobatics and a web gun. He was a member of the All-Star Squadron. Catalina Flores later became his successor, an ex-FBI agent taking the law into her own hands. Flores was romantically involved with Nightwing, although he disapproved of her willingness to kill criminals. Eventually she was arrested for the murder of Blockbuster. Tarantula was created by Mort Weisinger and Harold Wilson Sharp, first appearing in Star-Spangled Comics #1. (1941)
