Ralph Nelson, District Attorney, put on a costume to fight criminals as the Black Spider. He was assisted by his secretary, Peggy Dodge. Peggy was aware of his costumed identity and occasionally aided him, wearing a white handkerchief over the bottom of her face to conceal her identity. He had no powers but was a good fighter and carried specially trained spiders that he kept in a container on his belt.
