Marvel Comics Introduces Spider-Boy This Week
Dan Slott and Mark Bagley’s Spider-Man #7 will retcon the Marvel Universe to introduce Spider-Man’s long-lost sidekick Spider-Boy.
Dan Slott and Mark Bagley's Spider-Man #7, out this coming Wednesday from Marvel, will see the end of The End of the Spider-Verse story arc, but will also retcon the Marvel Universe to introduce Spider-Man's long-lost sidekick Spider-Boy. His origin will appear in June's Edge Of Spider-Verse #2 by Slott and the character's co-creator, Humberto Ramos.
"Over time, Marvel fans have met a host of new heroes from throughout the Spider-Verse! Miles Morales, Ghost-Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Punk, and so many more have weaved their way into the Marvel Universe and into fan's hearts. But none of have been anything like SPIDER-BOY. Not originating from the multiverse at all, Spider-Boy's been here all along and starred in some of the greatest stories in Spider-Man history! Hasn't he?"
"I can't wait for people to meet Spider-Boy, and the unique role he's going to play in both Spider-Man's world and the Marvel Universe," Slott said. "I grew up reading Spider-Man comics. He's my favorite character in all of fiction. All I ever wanted to do was tell stories with THIS cast, and it's been the coolest thing ever to co-create some of the characters who populate it. And this kid, this Spider-Boy, is THE one I'm most psyched about! On the art side, two absolute SPIDER-LEGENDS are bringing Spider-Boy to life. My longtime collaborator, Humberto Ramos and the amazing Mark Bagley. The all-new, all-different Spider-Boy of the 616: He's got strange new spider-powers, secret ties to dark corners of Spider-Man lore, and a story that's all his own… that is right about to begin!"
