In a special crossover event with the cast of the Disney Channel’s “Jessie,” Spider-Man finds himself trapped with Morgan Le Fay in the history museum on Halloween night. Prepare for the magic and mystery by learning more about Le Fay and make sure to watch the Halloween special this Friday at 9:30 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel.
Name: Morgan Le Fay
First Appearance: THE BLACK KNIGHT #1
Powers: Her magical abilities, granted to her from being half faerie and having studied under the sorcerer Merlin, allow her to cast powerful spells, create illusions, shape-shift into animals and fly. She can astral project her spirit out of her body, making her virtually immortal.
Origin: Morgan was born in the sixth century to a woman so beautiful that a war was started by Uther Pengragon in hopes of stealing her from her then-husband. Uther wed her mother and had a son with her whom everyone loved more than Morgan, making her resent her half-brother Arthur along with the rest of her family.
Both Morgan and Arthur were ignored by their parents, leaving Morgan to take care of Arthur. Merlin stole Arthur away from the family, causing Morgan’s mother to become even less interested in her children. Eventually, Morgan’s aunt Vivienne, Lady of the Lake Avalon, took Morgan under her care. Under the tutelage of Vivienne and Merlin, Morgan honed her magical abilities, as she was being groomed to become the next Lady of the Lake.
Through astral projection, Morgan sent her spirit into present day where she met, and was defeated, by Spider-Woman. Impressed by Spider-Woman’s abilities, Morgan attempted to force her into indentured servitude, but failed. However, she was able to separate Spider-Woman’s spirit from her body in an attempt to take over Spider-Woman’s physical form, but Morgan was defeated by the Avengers and Doctor Doom. Morgan also attempted to inhabit the body of Lisa Russell, but was defeated by Iron Man.
At one point, Doctor Doom and Iron Man were transported back to Camelot and Doom came to Morgan to help rescue his mother from Mephisto. She agreed so long as he would command her army of undead warriors, but she was defeated by Iron Man. This started a romantic relationship between Morgan and Doctor Doom, and after he was able to get control of immortal warriors that he used to battle the Mighty Avengers, he was defeated and she was left waiting for him to return.
Morgan eventually caught up with Doctor Doom to seek revenge for his betrayal. Morgan originally planned on killing Victor von Doom as a child, but wanted Doom to know why this vengeance was taking place. The Dark Avengers aided Doom when Doom and Iron Patriot went back to the sixth century to try to prevent her time-traveling. Every time Morgan was killed, she would reappear, but Doom was able to successfully cast a spell that sent her back to 1,000,000 B.C.
Morgan returns this Friday when she battles Spider-Man and the cast of Disney’s “Jessie” in a special Halloween episode of “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors” that airs at 9:30 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel!
