Some folk knew what was coming. And that Marvel Comics had been lying to everyone in the solicitations for the first three issues. Well, with the fourth issue December 2019 solicitations, out tonight, they are 'fessing up…
Spoilers, of course.

• Now that issue #1 is out, can we finally talk about this?
• Ben Parker, the son of Peter and Mary Jane, has had a lot thrown at him the last few weeks.
• Normal high school stuff: met the love of his life, stood up to a bully, found out his dad was Spider-Man and that he has powers, too, and the super-villain that changed everything is out to get him… Yep, normal high school stuff.
• However, in ways that we can't really explain here, this issue turns all THAT onto its head.
