Snapshot: Spider-Comic Happenings


Welcome to Snapshot, where we take a quick look at some cool Spider-Man related stuff. For this week, we’re going to take a look at some notable events happening in the Spider-Verse (which I’m classifying as anything that happens outside of the main Amazing Spider-Man issues).

First off, if you haven’t heard, Deadpool died recently! Specifically in issue 250 (45). But before his demise, he got his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet, and forced the Marvel Universe notables to attend his very own roast! And of course one of the jokesters was none other than your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man -though a seemingly unfunny one this time around.

Next we check in with our Ultimate Universe pal Miles Morales, the Ultimate Spider-Man. In the final issue of his solo series, Miles found himself face to face with none other than Dr. Doom! Luckily for our black and red friend, being exposed to such stress and danger manifested a brand new power which looks like an energy emission technique of some sort. We’ll see if this develops into an ace in a hole, or if it was a one time thing.

Meanwhile, back in the 616, we have one of my favorite spider characters, Silk! Returning to life after ten years is hard on a person, even more so when you have to deal with a Hydra robot, and afterwards run into your ex-boyfriend who you haven’t seen in years. Did I mention he has a fiancee? Ouch. We also see Silk channel her inner Superior Spider-Man and whip out the Spider-claws.

Finally, let’s see what’s up with the other femme fatale Spider-Gwen. Still locked in a cat and mouse game with the Vulture, things get even more troublesome when Office Frank Castle is after the menace Spider-Woman. Hopefully though, he won’t ever find out Spider-Gwen’s true identit… oh. Looks like he already has in Spider-Gwen #3.

There you have it, these are the Spider-Verse happenings. The best part of all this is, these characters are all on a crash course to Secret Wars, where these happenings will likely be more tied together.

Thanks for reading the Snap Shot and check in next time for more short-lived goodness.
