During Dan Slott‘s return to Spider-Man, he wrote an arc called End of the Spider-Verse. So no more Spider-Mans, right? Naturally, that’s not what happened. And now we have even more Spider-Mans than ever before, as Marvel is bringing back Edge of Spider-Verse.
The new iteration of the anthology series will debut in February 2024, and feature new tales of alternate Spider-folks. And it looks like the first one will introduce a sort of Spider-Wolverine. Written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, with art by Travel Foreman, the tale will introduce Weapon VIII, which certainly looks like Peter Parker in an amalgamation of Wolverine’s Weapon X outfit, and the classic ’90s X-Men outfit.
The first backup story will be focused on Spider-Byte, as seen in the recent Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. It will be written Nilah Magruder with art by Eric Gapstur. And the second backup, which will be written by somebody and drawn by somebody else (maybe) will set up yet another Spider crossover.
