Marvel Announces Civil War II: Amazing Spider-Man


As Marvel continues to pull the curtain back on tie-ins for Civil War II, the latest is a dedicated miniseries for none other then the Amazing Spider-Man.

If you read the original Civil War when it was published in 2006, then you know what a key role Spider-Man played in the series. In addition to revealing his secret identity to the world, it started the chain of events that would lead to “One More Day”, the dissolution of Peter’s marriage to Mary Jane Watson and the launch of “Brand New Day”.

These are all events in the character’s history that still divide fans to this day and have caused bitter arguments in comic shops everywhere.

So when Civil War II was announced, you knew Spider-Man was going to play a role in the series. Considering his history with the original, some would say it was unavoidable. But given how that all turned out and the part Iron Man played in those events, just what position will Peter side with?

In June we may get our answer.

Marvel has announced that Spider-Man will be getting his own Civil War II tie-in miniseries written by Christos Gage with art by Travel Foreman. The four-issue series will examine just where Spider-Man’s loyalties lie: with Iron Man or Captain Marvel and how his friendship with the Human Torch, who is now working with the Inhumans, factors into all of that.

From the Marvel press release:

"There’s a new Inhuman with the ability to predict the future. The Marvel Universe stands at a crossroads. Do its heroes wield this power to change the future as they see fit, or do they reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered? Iron Man and Captain Marvel stand on opposite sides of the issue, but one thing is for certain – this new Inhuman bears an immense responsibility to use his powers safely. And if there’s one person who knows a thing or two about power and responsibility – it’s the Amazing Spider-Man.The drums of war beat for the webslinger, and big changes are in store. Will Peter Parker stand with Captain Marvel? Or will he side with Iron Man? Find out this June in CIVIL WAR II: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1!"

Gage has already proven he knows how to write Spider-Man thanks to filling in for Dan Slott on occasion on Amazing Spider-Man but Foreman is an interesting choice to do the art. Looking at the work he did on Animal Man, he isn’t the first name I would think of to draw the character, but it could work really well.

Civil War II: Amazing Spider-Man goes on sale in comic shops everywhere this June.
