Featured Video

A Spider-Verse to end all Spider-Verse is exactly what Spider-Man legends Dan Slott and Mark Bagley are planning to hit Marvel comic fans with. Marvel has recently announced a new issue of Spider-Man that heralds the beginning of an end, an era that will no longer feature multiversal superhero crossovers.

Published between November 2014 to February 2015, the Spider-Verse series created by Dan Slott witnessed alternative versions of Spider-Man that had all appeared in various issues facing the incessant and sinister Spider-villain, Morlun, and his followers, the Inheritors.

Marvel ties in the running The Amazing Spider-Man series with what is going to come next. The series’ issue #7 will debut the web-slinging superhero in a suit designed by his famous nemesis, Green Goblin. The very same Spider-Man will be central to the onset of the new Spider-Man #1.

Taking place in the aftermath of Edge of the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man #1 gets rid of all the adjectives incumbent Spidey series and hosts the one and only web-slinger in a fight of his life. In an insidious foreshadowing, the synopsis of Spider-Man #1 reads: “Morlun is back and he is not alone. Allied with one of the most powerful beings known to the Spider-Verse, the scariest Spider-Villain of all time is making his biggest play and no Spider is safe. Especially not the Chosen Spider himself, Peter Parker. With Peter working for Norman Osborn and using a glider…does he have it coming?”

The creators Slott and Bagley thus set up the perfect showdown to snap the tethers of the final strand of Spider-Verse with the very first issue of the upcoming Spider-Man comic.

How Will The End Of Spider-Verse Happen?

Dan Slott and Mark Bagley are excited, to say the least, to make the new saga happen. With ever-present anticipation of what’s to come, the duo shares their plan on what they are setting up for their readers.

“THE END OF THE SPIDER-VERSE will see Peter, Miles, and your favorite characters from previous Spider-Verse stories, along with all-new characters from the upcoming EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE mini, slam them all together, and bring the entire SPIDER-VERSE saga to a fiery close! It’s going to have lots of action, surprises, but most of all, it’s going to have a lot of heart! Even though this story will be epic, it will also have a profound effect on Peter Parker.”

Launching on August 3, 2022, Edge of Spider-Verse #1 will feature stories reconnecting the comic fans with variants of Spider-Man and introducing new ones simultaneously. Post the five-issue series, Spider-Man #1 will swoop in to snap shut the chapter of Marvel’s Spider-Verse. Slott says,


How does it feel to be writing Spider-Man again? Like I’m home. Like there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. How does it feel to be working on it with Mark Bagley, one of the greatest Spidey icons of all-time?! Honored, excited, and unstoppable! Mark and I are two guys who live to tell Spider-Man stories. Cut us and we bleed Spider-Man. And now Marvel has entrusted the two of us to bring back their monthly, adjectiveless, SPIDER-MAN title! We are not going to let you down. We’re going to take BIG swings in each and every issue! And the first thing we’re doing, right out of the gate, is the Spider-Verse comic to END all Spider-Verse comics!”
