Gwenom At Last In Marvel Legacy Spider-Gwen By Jason Latour And Robbi Rodriguez

Stock up on black fabric, tongue props, and fake slobber, cosplayers, because the Venom symbiote may merge with Spider-Gwen for good in Marvel Legacy!

Gwenom At Last In Marvel Legacy Spider-Gwen By Jason Latour And Robbi Rodriguez

Marvel is rolling out some of their solicits for Marvel Legacy again today, and the first one comes via an interview with Jason Latour on Newsarama. It looks like we're finally getting that long-teased Gwenom story in Spider-Gwen #25. Latour detailed the basic premise:

Our 'Evil' Earth-65 Matt Murdock holds the cure to Harry Osborn's Lizard disease. A side effect of which is the creation of the Venom symbiote. Murdock has charged Gwen with bringing Harry in. If Gwen doesn't Harry becomes the Lizard for good or rots in a S.H.I.E.L.D. prison. If Gwen does, she hands Murdock the Venom symbiote in the process, and perhaps seals her own fate.

But he warns that once Gwen bonds with the symbiote, nothing will ever be the same again!

Not to be coy… but who says there is a 'next'? That's not to say that Spider-Gwen's stories are over. Far from it. But the power of this book is its ability to go anywhere. Don't expect the symbiote or "Gwenom" to be forgotten or temporary. I said it when Gwen lost her powers – we do these things with lasting intention. And Gwenom is shaping up to be the most lasting, and impactful moment in the history of this book.

Of course, there's other lasting ramifications that this story arc could have, as Bleeding Cool wrote back in March:

Early last year was promised that the mashup character Gwenom would be moving from cover variants to an actual character in the Spider-Gwen series, sometime last year. That it would be Spider-Gwen co-creator Robbi Rodriguez' retirement from comics. And it would be a year long arc.

So with Gwenom arriving, does that mean Robbi Rodriguez will soon be leaving us soon? Say it ain't so!

Here's the solicit:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
