it's an interesting relatiohship, even if Ophelia isn't jessica's biological mother, she might well consider herself to be so, due to Hydra's input into creating the original "Arachne" as part of the Athena project alluded to in the Origins mini. Maybe some of her genetic material DNA etc might have been used hence the similarities of appearance, or she might just be using it as a mind game.
Most outlandish theory I can come up with is that Vipers relationship to Spiderwoman is entirely non-biological, the appearance is just a fluke, however the normally nihilistic Ophelia has a psychological need to nurture something/someone and its become fixated on Jessica Drew and she wants to force her to become the daughter she never had or a suitable lieutenant/prodigy.
