Tarantula (DC) (03 - Catalina Flores)
Real Name: Catalina Marie Flores
Search for 'Tarantula (DC) (03 - Catalina Flores)' on Amazon

In the grand 21st century DC tradition of new heroes taking the mantle of Golden Age counterparts, Catalina Flores, an FBI Agent, proves herself to be one of John Laws' greatest admirers by becoming the new Tarantula. Living in Blüdhaven, she naturally encountered Nightwing (III) on diverse occasions, usually to his very great disapproval. In particular, he found her ability to "cross the line" and kill a criminal to be something to oppose. In fact, he had her arrested for killing Delmore Redhorn, the city's corrupt chief of police. Luckily, her brother was the city's Assistant District Attorney, and able to suppress evidence that would have convicted her.

She almost immediately thereafter killed Blockbuster in front of Grayson, yet he took no action to stop her. Inexplicably, she tried to essentially blackmail Grayson into marrying her on the pretense that he was, through his inaction, an implicit co-conspirator. He responded by having her arrested yet again, and admitted to police his role in the alleged crime.
