When I'm like this, call me -- Silk!
~ Cindy Moon

Silk (real name Cindy Moon) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

She was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos.


Thirteen years ago during a demonstration on the use of radioactive rays at a science exhibit, a spider was accidentally exposed to the radiation and absorbed large amounts of it. In its dying moments, the arachnid bit the nearest living thing to it, Peter Parker. As a result, the young teenager would gain amazing powers and become Spider-Man.

However, this was not the end. As mere moments after biting Parker, the spider bites another young student by the name of Cindy Moon. Soon after, Cindy’s abilities manifested but she was unable to control them. Some time later, Ezekiel would approach the Moon family to offer his help and guide Cindy in controlling her newfound abilities. After six years since getting bit and training to use her powers, Cindy is locked up inside a facility by Ezekiel to protect her and the other “spiders” from Morlun and his family called the Inheritors.


Cindy Moon was born in Washington Heights, Manhattan to Albert and Nari Moon, and is the sister to Albert Moon Jr. In her youth, her parents realized that Cindy had an eidetic memory, with her mother wanting her to focus on her studies while she wanted to play hockey with friends.
