    🕷 🕸  "In Edge of Spider-Verse #4' Charlotte Webber (the Sun-Spider) swings through the city on her way to prom. Charlie has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and while she has attended her school for some time, the administration still refuses to install a simple ramp. After Charlotte changes to Sun-Spider and defeats Doc Ock, she is left alone - forgotten by staff and students - while the rest of the guests escape. "You left Charlotte all alone, knowing there's no accessibility? And I'm the bad guy?" Octopus protests. #mainstreammedia #accessible #EDS​​​

    Better still the new character comes from a fan submission from Dayna Broder. Sun-Spider is a disabled hero who uses crutches when in costume, and an ambulatory wheelchair when not suited up."
