Spider-Boy Admits He's A Sidekick in Spider-Man #7 (Spoilers)
Dan Slott & Mark Bagley's Spider-Man #9, returns to Spider-Man's long-lost sidekick Spider-Boy. Even if he is reluctant to admit such a thing.
Dan Slott and Mark Bagley's Spider-Man #9, out today returns to Spider-Man's long-lost sidekick Spider-Boy. Even if he is reluctant to admit such a thing. His origin will appear in June's Edge Of Spider-Verse #3 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?"
And in Spider-Man #9, we see a bit of that history, imagined or otherwise, going back to Doc Connors, The Lizard's tales of Peter Parker. As well as a certain Norman Osborn, now knowing as the Golden Glider. Which, at least, elicits a confession out of Spider-Boy.
I mean, it took a good deal out of him.
Spider-Man's sidekick. Once you say it out loud, Spider-Boy, you can't take it back. So who is under that mask? Where did they come from? Where are they going? And just because you've seen Spider-Verse, don't expect a variant, Slott says "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!"
