Actually This Does Look Like The Return Of Earth-616 To Marvel

Yesterday Bleeding Cool ran a story about what we thought may be an editorial error in today's Spider-Women: Alpha, along the lines of an caption note in a previous issue of Web Warrior.

Web Warriors (2015-) 001-029

Yes, that one.

The Marvel Universe being referred to as Earth 616, a designation abandoned by Marvel Comics after the Secret Wars series, with executives stating that the Marvel Universe is the Prime Earth and any current references to Earth 616 being wrong.

Like that.

Well, either things changed, or there is a bigger mistake made today, as Spider-Gwen makes a trip from Earth-65 to here….Spider-Women Alpha 001-004
Spider-Women Alpha 001-004

And someone else makes a trip as well…Spider-Women Alpha 001-025…meet Tom Brevoort?

Spider-Women Alpha #1 is published today.
