The future of Marvel’s Spider-Verse is explored in an upcoming limited series. Writer Dan Slott is returning to the universe of Spider-heroes in Edge of Spider-Verse. The five-issue series will introduce new heroes while catching up with some familiar faces. The series sets the stage for an epic conclusion in The End Of Spider-Verse.
What Can We Expect From Edge of Spider-Verse?
Dan Slott’s return to the Spider-Verse will be an action-packed adventure. Each of the five issues will contain three different Spider stories. These stories will introduce new heroes to the Spider-Verse while catching up with some fan favorites. Classic characters returning to the series include Arana, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man: India. Plus, these new adventures will plant the seeds for an overarching saga that will kick off The End Of Spider-Verse later this year.
In an interview with Polygon, Slott shared that Marvel has done the “unthinkable” by ending the comic-book Spider-Verse. This universe is getting a “fiery conclusion” that will bear witness to the end of the entire universe. Of course, many comic book universes claim to end, only to re-emerge later. Therefore, we may see the Spider-Verse again.
Who Are Some of The New Heroes?
Polygon broke the news of the Spider-Verse’s impending ending. As such, they have a look at some of the debuting Spider-personas in the upcoming series. One of those Spider-Heroes is none other than Felicia Hardy as Night-Spider. In this universe, it was Peter Parker’s thieving friend that received a spider bite. Her new costume design is from Kris Anka.
Meanwhile, the design for Hunter-Spider comes from artist Mark Bagley. This Spider-hero resides in a universe where Sergei Kravenoff got the powers of a spider in a rather odd way. Of course, fans will have to read the series to find out exactly how Hunter-Spider came to be. There is also Spider-Laird who is the first kilt-wearing Spider-hero. Martin Coccolo co-created the kilt-loving web-slinger.
All of these and more can be discovered when Edge of Spider-Verse debuts in August.
