The spider-girl symbolizes a want and need for understanding. She does not directly relate to the main characters, but to everyone else she is an answer. Her existence proves definitively to them that a higher power exists and does watch our every move. The man with enormous wings cannot explain himself and does not try, leaving the people with nothing but opinions and speculations.
