Character description from package "tech spec": Blackarachnia started out as a promising young recruit at the Autobot Academy. accidentally abandoned on a hostile alien world by her teammates, she did the only thing she could --merged with the organic giant spiders that sawrmed the caves in which she was trapped. Emerging as a technorganic mutant, she vowed revenge on the Autobots that had left her behind, and joined with the Decepticons in their war of conquest.
Galactic Powers and Abilities:
Other appearances: Work with me here! Tarantulas was the (evil) mad scientist of Beast Wars, couldn't one suppose that upon finding a Maximal stasis pod, he extinguished the Maximal spark within and "resurrected" Blackarachnia, the same individual whose origin was told in Transformers Animated? Heck the season 3 episode, "Predacons Rising" could very well tell the origin of the Predacons. What if it turns out that Animated Blackarachnia is a founding member! Is it too much to suppose that Tarantualas could have procured her spark after a fatal battle... Only time will tell if my theory could be so.
of how you choose to see it, here are a list of other Blackarachnia characters from TF mythology:
Bibliography of significant appearances: Blackarachnia is the only Transformer in the Animated movie introduction with the same alternate mode as she has once she arrives on Earth. She was heavily featured in episode 6 Along Came a Spider and 23 Black Friday
