Last week Marvel Comics teased a stunning new character set to debut in Dan Slott and Mark Bagley’s SPIDER-MAN #7, and now it’s time to unveil this spectacular new hero!
Introducing SPIDER-BOY, making his first appearance next week in SPIDER-MAN #7, the thrilling conclusion to “The End of the Spider-Verse” story arc.
Dubbed Spider-Man’s long-lost sidekick, Spider-Boy will then appear in future issues of SPIDER-MAN, and his outrageous origin will be told this June in EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #3 in a story by Slott and the character’s co-creator, Humberto Ramos!
SInce it’s inception, Marvel fans have met a host of new heroes from throughout the Spider-Verse! such as Miles Morales, Ghost-Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Punk, and so many more who have weaved their way into the Marvel Universe and into fan’s hearts. But none of have been anything like SPIDER-BOY. Unlike these other members of the Spider-Man family, Spider-Boy does not originate from the multiverse at all, in fact, he’s been here all along and starred in some of the greatest stories in Spider-Man history! Hasn’t he?
Here’s what Slott had to say about his bold new creation:
“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. 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!”
