Spider-Man and X-Men epic DARK WEB coming this December!
This December, Spider-Man and the X-Men will be sent into a spiral in DARK WEB. The wronged clones of the Marvel Universe, Madelyne Pryor, AKA the Goblin Queen, and Ben Reilly, now known as Chasm, will team up. In addition, this December will bring on a series of tie-in issues and limited series.
The saga will be bookended by two one-shots, subtitled DUSK and DAWN.
They are written by current Amazing Spider-Man scribe Zeb Wells and drawn by Adam Kubert. DARK WEB #1 will reveal the true scope of Madelyne and Ben’s wicked alliance, what it means for Spider-Man and the X-Men, and the surprising role Venom will play. Zeb Wells will continue the story in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #15 and #16 with legendary artist Ed McGuinness.
In Dark Web Issue #1, Peter Parker will have his hands full.
He will have back-to-back showdowns, starting with Venom. Find out exactly why Venom is helping Chasm, and then it’s time for the main event. It will be Peter Parker vs. Ben Reilly, no-holds-barred in the craziest battle you’ve ever seen! Chasm secures his place in Spidey’s rogues’ gallery as the one who finally vanquishes Peter Parker?!
December will also see the launch of DARK WEB: X-MEN.
It is a three-issue limited series by X-Men writer Gerry Duggan and artist Rod Reis. In DARK WEB: X-MEN #1, chaos reigns in the streets of New York City. A demon hordes pour forth from the realm of Limbo…a realm that until recently was ruled by Magik. A realm now ruled by Cyclops’ ex. Also, Havok’s ex. Also, a clone of Jean. The X-Men wade into the fray by taking on some of their darker history as the Goblin Queen returns for vengeance! The not-so-happy reunions continue in DARK WEB: X-MEN #2.
Ms. Marvel will also have a significant story arc during the event in her own limited series, DARK WEB: MS. MARVEL. From Sabir Pirzada and artist Francesco Mortarino comes a new vision of Ms. Marvel. Fresh off her first few weeks working as an intern at Oscorp, Ms. Marvel finds herself as the last line of defense against a bunch of deadly and dangerous experiments going haywire thanks to Maddie and Ben’s demonic machinations! Things get even worse when Kamala finds herself in Limbo, with no choice but to fight her way out!
Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch’s VENOM #14 will reveal secrets.
Madelyne Pryor has plans for Eddie Brock and the symbiotes he can control – in this issue, she and her new ally CHASM bring them all to bear! Unwittingly turned into a slathering and terrifying monster you might recognize, Eddie Brock’s fears from the last year stand fully realized in this turning point for Al Ewing, Ram V, and Bryan Hitch’s enthralling run on the title!
Writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Lan Medina continue to explore Norman Osborn’s heroic journey in GOLD GOBLIN #2. The limited series will prove that being a superhero isn’t for everyone. After facing Chasm in DARK WEB #1, Norman Osborn will have to face another terrifying opponent in this issue who might cut Norman’s new superhero career short!
Finally, announced last month, two of the greatest loves of Peter Parker’s life are in for a DARK WEB adventure of their own in MARY JANE & BLACK CAT. Read more Comic news on Nerdtropolis. Subscribe to our YouTube.
