History: Tony Troy is a very popular comic book artist, working for a publisher named Abyssinia. He joined the Science Patrol for more adventure.
Powers & Weapons: Blue Spider uses a variety of equipment invented by Professor Timothy Barris, with later improvements by Science Patrol personnel. He usually wears distinctively shaped bracers which hold an electro-static charge called the Spider's Bite. His utility belt holds tear gas pellets and an aerosol instant knock-out gas. The Arachnid Protector, his helmet, has a face shield, which contains specialized multi-lenses with various technical abilities, including visual enhancement and communications. His costume, the Arachnid Armor, consists of synthetic stretch fabric equipped with micro-suction cups on fingers and feet, enabling him to adhere to walls and ceilings. As a Science Patrolman, he is trained in the use of knives, unarmed combat, and various firearms. He also uses a modified Science Patrol handgun, called Webley, that fires a string of fast-hardening nylon that can be used to swing from one anchored point to another and ensnare its victims. He also drives a ground-effects vehicle called Arachnid XP-7.
