Yessir. And yeah! I think so too. If anything, they could have worked with each other before the group got together. Maybe dealing with seedier groups and making sure they don't walk away or smth like that.
Interestingly! Sam was still an active villain when Caty, Danny and Bob first got bitten. I'm not sure if they would have ever crossed paths since Sam dealt mostly in more covert operations but they probably have heard of the group she did work with.
I could definitely see that. I wouldn't be surprised if she inspired him and is one of the reasons he ended up calling himself the Arachnid. He's one of, if not the last to become a Spider-Totem, having only been bitten 1 and a half to 2 years ago after working closely with Caty as his TA.
And it would've been interesting had Sam crossed paths with them. Maybe even during Caty's initial solo run.
